Elon Musk spoke recently about AI as our “biggest existential threat”. Further, about its development, he said, “It’s like summoning the demon”. This is quite a surprise, especially coming from such a forward-thinking person as Mr. Musk. His belief is that intelligent machines could land up “using humans as pets”. A concerning thought.
Professor Stephen Hawking was another advanced mind who foretold of technological disaster threatening humankind that would ensue with “near certainty”.
Some people are doomsayers when it comes to anything AI, and predicting that millions of jobs will be lost.
