Elon Musk Says AI Is A Threat To Humanity


Speaking at the National Governor's Association Saturday, Musk called on legislators to take heed of the danger and act.

"Probably in 10 years, more than a half of new vehicle production is electric in the United States", said Musk, adding "half of all production will be EV, I think nearly all cars produced will be autonomous".

"I just asked him to come down to Louisiana and sit down with us, sit down with the Louisiana Automobile Dealers Association and work out some sort of a compromise, which they have successfully done in other states", Edwards said.

"It takes forever. That, in the past, has been bad but not something which represented a fundamental risk to the existence of civilization", Musk continued. "The world population tends to collapse, but hardly anyone sees it or cares about it", - commented on Twitter, the businessman, the publication New Scientist, which tells about the aging of the population and restricted access to food resources. I'm increasingly inclined to think there should be some regulatory oversight at the national and global level, just to make sure that we don't do something very foolish.

Musk has long warned of the dangers posed by AI, signing a letter published by the Future of Life Institute in January supporting the Asilomar AI Principles to ensure the development of artificial intelligence that is beneficial to humanity. I'm against overregulation for sure, but man, I think with we've got to get on that with AI, pronto.

Musk also expressed support for ways to proactively regulate the AI industry.

For those who are not quite acquainted with artificial intelligence or deep intelligence networks, then Musk's explicit explanation on how AI could execute a digital manipulation to wage war may help put things into perspective.

After earlier advising politicians that outdated laws need to be relaxed in order to facilitate innovation, Musk admitted that he favors government regulation when it comes to robot technology.

"Once there is awareness, people will be extremely afraid, as they should be", Musk said.

Musk, along with several other tech luminaries, including Stephen Hawking, have warned about artificial intelligence before. Look closely at the progress that is being made and the remarkable achievements of artificial intelligence.

Anyway, basic premise - the robots are coming to kill us. "I keep sounding the alarm bell".

"It would seem to follow that the odds that we're in "base reality" is one in billions", Musk said. "I did my best, and I think in a few cases I did make some progress".
