Elon Musk fears the advancement of artificial intelligence
Much has been said about the technological singularity, a hypothetical point in the future when the software becomes sufficiently self-aware and evolve beyond human understanding. Some say it will be when you begin true technological evolution of humankind, while others believe that artificial intelligence will turn against us, the better Terminator style.
Elon Musk, the famous entrepreneur behind big companies like Tesla and SpaceX Motros, afraid to advance artificial intelligence, and in fact believes that it will become deadly for us in a period of 5 to about 10 years.
Jaron Lanier, a pioneer of the technology of virtual reality, recently began a discussion on the Internet through an article that talked about the myths of artificial intelligence. Several scientists and engineers collaborated with comments on the topic, and one of them was Elon Musk, who sounded particularly alarmed about.
Musk believes something seriously dangerous could happen in about five years or so, or in 10 years at the latest. Musk says he has always found very supportive of the advancement of technology, and has actually started thinking about the topic of artificial intelligence and its dangers only in recent months.
Apparently, Musk commentary that appeared in the press Lanier was actually private and should not appear in public sectors. Although now was deleted article, several screenshots were made before and are available in many web portals. For some reason, the idea was that Musk comments on artificial intelligence did not go to the public how they did.
What think you? Do you think that artificial intelligence is a threat to humanity?
