Elon Musk on AI
Thomas H, Manhattan, Apr 9th 2018
Elon Musk made a statement today on the dangers involved with Artificial Intelligence and how computer intelligence needs to be regulated or else it could pose the risk of becoming an ‘immortal’ digital dictator, from which there will be no escape for humans. Says Musk, “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”. Musk called AI “the biggest risk we face as a civilization”.
