Twitter will soon open up all the code used to recommend tweets: Elon Musk
San FranciscoTwitter CEO Elon Musk on Saturday said the micro-blogging platform will open up all the code used to recommend tweets on March 31. Twitter will open up all the code used to recommend tweets on March 31, Musk tweeted. “Our ‘algorithm’ is highly complex and not fully understood internally. People will discover many silly things, but we will fix the issues as soon as they are found!”
In addition, Musk said that the company is developing a simplified approach to ‘serve up’ more ‘compelling’ tweets and that will also be open source. “Providing code transparency will be incredibly embarrassing at first, but this should lead to a rapid improvement in recommendation quality,” he said. Most importantly, we hope to earn your trust.” Last month, Musk said the platform would make its algorithm ‘open source’ and improve it ‘rapidly’. Twitter’s CEO said that in the coming months, the company will use artificial intelligence to ‘detect and expose manipulation of public opinion on its platform’. Earlier this month, the tech billionaire said that his interest has shifted from cryptocurrency to AI.
