Elon Musk Says AI Is A Threat To Humanity

CEO Elon Musk, speaking at the National Governors Association over the weekend, outlined his biggest security concern. In April, he announced Neuralink, a San Francisco, California-based startup that builds devices connecting human brains and computers in hopes to protect humanity from the perils of artificial intelligence.

Governments must have a better understanding of artificial intelligence technology's rapid evolution in order to fully comprehend the risks, he said. He also reinforced his case by saying that AI is not just an ordinary threat like everyday tragic events such as vehicle crashes.

"I'm against over regulation for sure but I think we need to get on that with AI".

"That, in the past, has been bad but not something which represented a fundamental risk to the existence of civilisation".

Musk explained how Tesla was drawn to Nevada when building its first Gigafactory, and that things like tax incentives and regulations made it easy to begin construction, along with the promise of up to 10,000 jobs being created once it's finished.

That said, he has asked America's governors to regulate the technology as soon as possible.

She said "I happened to have a quiet moment in the afternoon so I chose to take a picture with my twins for the craic", she said. That's all one woman needed to pull off a remixed version of Beyoncé's viral baby announcement photos.

"The legislation will reinforce [the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority's] discretion over whether or not to permit the use of "bank", ensuring that community expectations around the application of the term are maintained", Treasurer Scott Morrison said in a statement.

"I think we should be really concerned about AI". The world too takes Musk quite seriously, and his sayings often make headlines. "The pen is mightier than the sword".

The Tesla CEO acknowledged the fact that robots are exponentially more efficient than human beings when it comes to work, but they always pose the threat of starting a war through fake news and spoofing emails. By "too late", he means before "robots going down the street killing people".

Musk's OpenAI research company is working to pave the way for "safe artificial general intelligence".

The British government, in an attempt to strengthen the automotive and technological industries, is now on a mission to make the United Kingdom a hub for the progress of autonomous development, although Germany, with new, autonomous-friendly vehicle legislation, is making progress ahead of the launch of the new Audi A8, which is level three autonomy capable.

Musk has said on several occasions that Tesla plans to showcase a cross-country journey made in a self-driving vehicle, and with no human intervention, that will travel from California to a parking garage in NY by the end of 2017.
