Stability AI CEO to Staff: 'You're all going to die in 2023...' (Due to Competition)

Stability AI’s CEO warned employees about the competition heating up in the artificial intelligence industry. His message to staff: “You’re all going to die in 2023.”

A new Forbes report details how Emad Mostaque — who founded Stability AI, a company that creates open-source AI tools, in 2020 — is preparing to go up against fellow startup OpenAI, as well as behemoths like Google and Meta, in 2023 as tech companies race to release commercialized AI products.

In August, Stability AI released Stable Diffusion, an open-source AI text-to-image generator, to the public. According to Forbes, Stable Diffusion is used by 10 million people each day — more than the number who use OpenAI’s DALL-E 2, which was released to the public in July.
