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”.
