I can’t wait for OpenAI to access my phone: Musk

New Delhi, June 15 (IANS) After criticizing Apple’s partnership with OpenAI on ChatGPT’s integration with iPhones, tech billionaire Elon Musk has claimed that the Sam Altman-led AI company could eventually gain access to its telephone.

In response to reports that OpenAI has hired Paul Nakasone, former commander of the US Cyber ​​Command and director of the National Security Agency (NSA), to its board of directors, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX expressed his concerns.

“I can’t wait for OpenAI to access my phone,” Musk posted on social media platform X.

After joining OpenAI, Nakasone said he would help protect the company from “increasingly sophisticated bad actors.”

The former top US intelligence official will also join OpenAI’s new safety and security committee.

Musk threatens to ban iPhones at his companies over ChatGPT integration

Musk last week threatened to ban iPhones from all his companies over the integration of ChatGPT into iPhones.

He said that if Apple integrates OpenAI at the operating system (OS) level, Apple devices will be banned at its companies, adding that this is an unacceptable security breach.

The tech billionaire further said that visitors to his businesses will have to check their Apple devices at the door, where they will be kept in a Faraday cage.

Musk is apparently planning an X phone with Samsung as a partner.
