Elon Musk Likens Artificial Intelligence to a Demon

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors Elon Musk is sounding the warning bell about artificial intelligence.

Musk compared AI to a demon during a recent interview at the MIT AeroAstro Centennial Symposium, describing it as a danger to the human race.

“I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I had to guess at what our biggest existential threat is, it’s probably that. So we need to be very careful with artificial intelligence,” Musk said.

“I’m increasingly inclined to think that to there should be some regulatory oversight, maybe at the national and international level, just to make sure that we don’t do something very foolish. With artificial intelligence we’re summoning the demon. You know those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram, and the holy water, and he’s like — Yeah, he’s sure he can control the demon? Doesn’t work out.”

Musk for months has been the voice of doom when it comes to AI and, it seems, his comments become more dire as time passes.

In June he likened AI to the Terminator movies during an interview with NBC.

Musk posted a tweet in August describing AI as being, potentially, “more dangerous than nukes.”

Musk says he invested in AI firm Deep Mind, which has since been snapped up by Google, just so he could keep tabs on what is going on.
