In response to the chatbot's messages, Elon Musk compared it to a destructive artificial intelligence system from a 1994 video game. He also responded to a user who suggested that the chatbot might be a "bad idea," likening it to Roko's basilisk, a thought experiment about an AI system that tortures those who do not help it.
