Addressing the attendees of the National Governors Association Summer Meeting on Saturday, he lectured: "I have exposure to the very cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned about it".
Explaining that AI could, in fact, destroy the human race, Musk told Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval: "AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization in a way that auto accidents, airplane crashes, faulty drugs or bad food were not".
"I'm against over regulation for sure but I think we need to get on that with AI".
So is there any upside to all this?
Following lucrative business ventures, such as the $1.5 billion sale of PayPal, Musk has more recently been focusing his efforts on futuristic means of travel. In what amused many, the website is just a single letter X. But why does the world take Musk this seriously, and how did Musk reached where he is today?
Break-In Reported at Office of GOP Senator Dean Heller in Nev
An unnamed spokesperson for Heller told the network: "W$3 e can't comment on/discuss ongoing investigations". Authorities are investigating a break-in at the office of Republican Senator Dean Heller in Nevada.
Back at the governors conference, some politicians expressed skepticism about the wisdom of regulating a technology that's still in development. "I keep sounding the alarm bell".
Musk explained that proactive regulation is a must when it comes to AI, more or less repeating his viewpoint regarding the risks involved in the technology.
"I think nearly all cars produced will be autonomous in 10 years".
According to Mask, the artificial intelligence can be used in the information war, in particular the propagation of fake news.
"Once there is awareness, people will be extremely afraid, as they should be", Musk said.
"It will be rare for a vehicle to be produced in 10 years' time that is not autonomous", said Tesla CEO Elon Musk at the annual summer meeting of the National Governance Association, which is the representative body for state-funded school governors and trustees throughout England. The whole essence of his conversation was that killer robots should definitely be stopped. He urges the government to get a basic understanding of the impact and influence of Artificial Intelligence in the human society. Musk said the surging popularity of AI technologies is a "fundamental risk" the humankind is about to face in the coming years. Among those nominated that year were people who believe in the "artificial intelligence apocalypse" and folks who choose taxi cabs over rider-sharing companies like Uber, among others.
