Musk Claims to Have Invented a Story Generator That's "Too Dangerous to Release"

The word from Gizmodo, via the Guardian, is that Elon Musk-backed AI Company Claims It Made a Text Generator That's Too Dangerous to Release

Elon Musk has been clear that he believes artificial intelligence is the "biggest existential threat" to humanity. Musk is one of the primary funders of OpenAI and though he has taken a backseat role at the organization, its researchers appear to share his concerns about opening a Pandora's box of trouble. This week, OpenAI shared a paper covering their latest work on text generation technology but they're deviating from their standard practice of releasing the full research to the public out of fear that it could be abused by bad actors. Rather than releasing the fully trained model, it's releasing a smaller model for researchers to experiment with. The researchers used 40GB of data pulled from 8 million web pages to train the GPT-2 software.
