Musk Gives Ominous Warning About AI, Asserts Regulation Is Needed

Musk said job disruption will be massive when AI-powered machines reach their potential, joking "I'm not exactly what to do about this", before adding, "this is really like the scariest problem to me".

Elon Musk also made time for a private meet and greeted with several U.S. state Governors. He stressed out that "robots going down the street killing people" may seem "so ethereal" for people today but not until they would witness it in the future. Because I think by the time we are reactive in AI regulation, it's too late. That, in the past, has been bad, but not something which represented a fundamental risk to the existence of civilisation...

Musk said vehicle accidents, airplane crashes, faulty drugs, and bad food are merely harmful to certain parts of the society, but AI would affect all of society. "They were harmful to a set of individuals in society of course, but they were not harmful to society as a whole", reported RT News.

Musk didn't mention direct sales in his public remarks before the governors, but he did address regulation generally - and reiterated his long-held argument that state and/or federal oversight is needed soon to protect humanity from being outsmarted by computers, or "deep intelligence in the network" that can start wars by manipulating information. "Because I think by the time we are reactive in AI regulation, it's too late".

Musk also argued that regulation is important so that AI companies' respective developments can be paused and then analyzed to make sure they're safe.

Chelsea Keen On Sergio Aguero
Premier League holders Chelsea could reportedly land the services of Sergio Aguero during this summer's transfer window. Spanish journalist Manu Sainz claimed last night that the Premier League champions were interested in the City hitman.

Musk also expressed support for ways to proactively regulate the AI industry.

"When I say everything, the robots will do everything, bar nothing", he said.

The tech billionaire outlined some of the hypothetical situations in which AI could prove to be a threat.

The point of his meeting with USA governors was to reiterate his long-held argument that proactive regulation is needed to protect humanity from being outsmarted by computers, or "deep intelligence in the network" that can start wars by manipulating information, the Associated Press reported. "The pen is mightier than the sword", Musk said.

On Saturday, Musk said he had pushed for environmental sustainability and tried to touch on other issues like immigration, advocating that immigration laws should not be "unkind or unreasonable".
