Elon Musk And Artificial Intelligence Share A Tumultuous Relationship
He may be daring enough to propose colonizing a barren planet with potentially little or no water, but ask him about the future of artificial intelligence, and Elon Musk may just end up losing his cool. In a startling contradiction to Silicon Valley elites Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page, Elon Musk is one of the fewer scientific geniuses who are of the opinion that artificial intelligence will eventually bring over the apocalypse. Musk’s fears aren’t generally of the doomsaying sort, although they have sometimes been known to be. But mostly, they are valid concerns expressed regarding the hypercompetitiveness of technology and the possibility of artificial intelligence one day outrunning humans in terms of their efficiency and usefulness. There are a number of reasons why that would probably never happen, but that has never stopped our beloved visionary from stocking up for the AI apocalypse.
