Elon Musk and Other Tech Celebrities Want to Prevent AI from Taking over the World

Artificial intelligence and the dangers that it could pose are taken very seriously by some of the world’s most renowned tech experts, including Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, Jessica Livingston and Reid Hoffman. In order to prevent large companies from taking things too far in terms of AI development, the aforementioned individuals and Amazon Web Services are collectively pledging $1 billion to a non-profit named OpenAI.

It’s true that companies such as Google are currently sharing a large portion of their research, but it’s not exactly clear how much information will be divulged in the future, especially since AI might actually rival human intelligence at some point. Sources indicate that OpenAI will make all of its results available to the public and will offer its patents royalty-free, which definitely goes a long way towards ensuring the subject’s transparency. Elon Musk has voiced his artificial intelligence concerns several times in the past while Bill Gates has also expressed his own warnings. Apart from helping to fund OpenAI, Elon actually plans to spend time with the organization’s team members in order to check up on their progress. These meetings would probably take place every week or so, which is definitely commendable considering how busy Musk’s schedule must be.
