WHY ELON MUSK IS SUSPICIOUS OF AI?
The man behind Space X, Tesla Motors and the revolutionary Hyperloop transportation system expressed reservations about artificial intelligence, saying it threatens human existence.
Speaking at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Aeronautics and Astronautics department's Centennial Symposium, he said that in developing artificial intelligence “we are summoning the demon”. “I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I had to guess at what our biggest existential threat is, it's probably that. So we need to be very careful. I'm increasingly inclined to think that there should be some regulatory oversight, maybe at the national and international level, just to make sure that we don't do something very foolish,” he is quoted as saying. However Musk himself has invested in companies developing AI “to keep an eye on them”.
