Elon Musk Says Artificial Intelligence Could Be 'More Dangerous Than Nukes'

Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 3, 2014 Others, like Google's Ray Kurzweil, have discussed a technological 'singularity,' in which A.I.'s take over from humans, but rarely has such a high profile voice with real ties to the technology business put the prospect in such stark terms.

to nuclear weapons, a threat that has cast a worrying shadow over much of the last 30 years in terms of humanity's longevity possibly being cut short by a nuclear war, immediately raises a couple of questions.

concerns — which remain fantastical to many — as proof that his predictions regarding electric cars and commercial space travel are the visions of someone who has seen too many science fiction films.

Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 3, 2014 In recent years, Musk's most science fiction-inspired comments have revolved around colonizing Mars, but this latest comment, and the one he made back in June about fearing a 'Terminator' future, indicate that this is a serious issue for the tech mogul.

Elon Musk says artificial intelligence is 'potentially more dangerous than nukes'

The billionaire inventor loves to make the impossible possible, but he is deeply afraid of artificial intelligence (AI).

Both are scary enough — one compares sentient networked robots with the most dangerous weapon on earth, and the other suggests we're merely the fleshy precursors to robot dominance.

In an interview with CNBC earlier this year, Musk said that we should be incredibly careful when developing such systems, and he jokingly cited Terminator as an example of what could happen if we mess up.

It isn't hard to imagine what a doomsday scenario could look like — especially with Google snatching up Boston Dynamics, makers of the creepiest robots on earth, and an artificial intelligence company called DeepMind.

AI 'more dangerous than nukes': Elon Musk still firm on regulatory oversight

Entrepreneur Elon Musk has long held the position that innovators need to be aware of the social risk artificial intelligence (AI) presents to the future, but at South by Southwest (SXSW) on Sunday, the SpaceX founder pieced together his plan for the second coming of the Dark Ages, noting AI 'scares the hell' out of him.

Making an appearance on a couch with his friend, creator of science fiction western series Westworld Jonathan Nolan, Musk said that although he's not usually an advocate for regulation and oversight, the AI proposition is where he can make an exception.

TechRepublic: IBM Watson CTO: The 3 ethical principles AI needs to embrace 'This is a case where you have a very serious danger to the public, therefore there needs to be a public body that has insight and then oversight to confirm that everyone is developing AI safely -- this is extremely important,' he said.

Predicting a similar fate for self-driving vehicles, Musk expects by the end of next year, self-driving will encompass essentially all modes of driving and be at least 100-200 percent safer than a human driver.

I think we've got to build an interface -- we didn't evolve to have a communications jack -- there's got to be essentially a vast number of tiny electrodes that are able to read right from your brain,' he explained.

'A digital extension of you, that is an AI, the AI extension of you, a tertiary layer of intelligence, so you've got your limbic system, your cortex, and the tertiary layer which is a digital AI extension of you, and high bandwidth connection is what achieves a tight symbiosis.

Elon Musk says AI threat greater than nuclear warheads: ‘it scares the hell out of me’

Speaking to a packed room at a quickly arranged question and answer session at SXSW, Musk was in a playful mood as he spoke about various elements of his work in attempting to develop space travel to Mars and how close his companies came to going broke some years ago.

It is capable of vastly more than anyone know and the rate of improvement is exponential.” He added his belief that there was an underestimation of the speed of learning that AI was capable of and that it needed close regulation in order to avoid it become “a very serious danger to the public”.

“We are already a cyborg, in that your phone and keyboard are an extension of you.” He also discussed his desire to create excitement around space exploration again within the public consciousness and revealed that before launching SpaceX, his initial plan was to find a way to gain more funding for NASA.

Of how he made a decision over which world changing projects to embark on, he admitted: “I don’t look at things and say ‘what is their rank-order, business opportunity?' or anything like that - it’s some things that don’t seem to be working that are important for life and for our future to be good.

I gave both Tesla and SpaceX less than a 10% chance to succeed.” “I don’t really have a business plan,” he admitted, which led to him revealing how close both Tesla and SpaceX came to folding in 2008, but that splitting his remaining money between the two saved both when he felt he could only afford to save one and let the other close.
