AI Potentially More Dangerous than Nukes Says Elon Musk

/ 8 years ago


I’m sure most of you have seen the Terminator movies, the effects of AI and what happened when SkyNet was put into service, sending the world into a downward spiral of destruction and war. Elon Musk has likely envisioned something similar as he tweeted;

Elon is a powerful man in this world, responsible for services such as PayPal, Tesla, space travel technologies and a whole lot more, so you have to assume the guy knows what he is talking about. This is especially true given that Elon is a major investor in AI startup Vicarious.

So while Elon may be working on AI himself, his warning is still valid and the next few years could certainly make a big impact on the world of AI, let’s just also hope we don’t have a SkyNet style situation on our hands, or further down the scale, Toasters that purposely burn your toast because you were rude to them.
