Elon Musk has predicted that in the next five years Artificial intelligence (AI) will be superior to humans.
Musk has been a critical voice in raising alarm about the excesses of artificial intelligence. In 2018, for example, Musk warned that AI could become “an immortal dictator from which we would never escape” and that the technology of AI seems to be more dangerous than nuclear weapons.
In his words in a New York Times interview, He insisted that current trends of Ai could overtake humans by 2025. Nevertheless, Musk adds “that doesn’t mean that everything goes to hell in five years. It just means that things get unstable or weird.”
If correct, the latest alarm from him would position Ai as the sole technological system of serious concern when machine intelligence overtakes human. Meanwhile, another person by name Ray Kurzweil, a respected futurist, has previously estimated the same assertion as a singular occurence around 2045.
Musk whi is the founder of OpenAI back in 2015 with the goal of researching and promoting ethical artificial intelligence. Following disagreements with the company’s direction, Musk left OpenAI in 2018.
Back in February, Musk responded to an MIT Technology Review profile of OpenAI saying that it “should be more open” and that all organisations “developing advanced AI should be regulated, including Tesla.”
