You thought movies like Terminator were just make believe.
Well Elon Musk is here to tell you that you should be scared.
# 1 problem facing civilization is not Global Warming, Or Nuclear Proliferation, or Income inequality.
#1 problem will be artificial intelligence.
It is an "existential threat…."
At least that is what Elon says.
The folks at Google disagree though. Why would google agree when they control all the army robot companies.
That is right….When the most powerful company in the Universe (Google) doesn’t like what you are doing (or saying….or going……..) they will send the army robots to drag you away.
Just remember……Elon tried to warn you.
Elon is now a big fan or regulation too.
"AI is a fundamental existential risk for human civilization, and I don't think people fully appreciate that," Musk said. He said he has access to cutting-edge AI technology, and that based on what he's seen, AI is "the scariest problem."
Musk told the governors that AI calls for precautionary, proactive government intervention: "I think by the time we are reactive in AI regulation, it's too late,"
He was clearly not thrilled to make that argument, calling regulation generally "not fun" and "irksome," but he said that in the case of AI, the risks are too high to allow AI to develop unfettered.
"I think people should be really concerned about it," Musk said. "I keep sounding the alarm bell."
some Silicon Valley leaders — including Google co-founder Larry Page — do not share Musk's skepticism, and describe AI as a possible force for good.
Critics "argue that Musk is interested less in saving the world than in buffing his brand," Dowd writes, and that his speeches on the threat of AI are part of a larger sales strategy.
