Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX recently said in a documentary that if AI is not regulated or controlled, it will soon take over humans and will become an immortal dictator. Already AI has an impact on various jobs, people are talking about the positive and negative effects of AI in our lives. The only unique thing which the humans possess is intelligence and if that will be given to the machines, then humans will be of no use.
Musk says “At least when there’s an evil dictator, that human is going to die. But for an AI there would be no death. It would live forever, and then you’d have an immortal dictator, from which we could never escape”.
Elon Musk told all this to Chris Paine, the director of the new documentary “Do You Trust This Computer?”. Elon has always been a critic for AI and has always tried to restrain the idea of AI as it may damage the human world if taught too much.
Recently Musk said that people should be a bit more concerned regarding AI rather than the risk posed by North Korea. Musk also quit the board of OpenAI, a non-profit AI research company he co-founded which works on human-friendly AI for the benefit of humanity. In 2014, Musk said that AI is the biggest threat to humans and should be stopped as soon as possible. He further added that the US should stop the killer robot arms race.
“AI is a rare case where we need to be proactive in regulation instead of reactive because if we’re reactive in AI regulation it’s too late,” as he said.
Recently in as verbal chat with the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who is a big supporter of AI, Musk said that he has a little knowledge of about the topic. To which Zuckerberg replied: “I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios I just, I don’t understand it. It’s really negative and in some ways, I actually think it is pretty irresponsible”.
