Tesla’s Elon Musk Calls Artificial Intelligence System A Bigger Threat Than North Korea

Published on 14 August, 2017 at 6:15 pm By

Firing off an ominous warning on Friday, TESLA CEO Elon Musk picked on the excessive use of artificial intelligence (better known as AI) and depicted the emerging technology as a harbinger of destruction to humanity on a much larger scale than a possible nuclear conflagration with North Korea.

It is to be noted that Musk has always been a fierce critique of AI and had once even compared the technology with “summoning the demon” in a horror movie. So, on Saturday there came another tweet from the TESLA CEO, seemingly against AI. Here, Musk noted the importance of having a deep knowledge of the machines before playing with them.

This tweet came in relation to the Dota-2 contest, which is known for its extreme complexity and has two teams pitted against each other on a virtual battle arena. Reacting to reports of autonomous technologies besting competitive players in the electronic sports competition, Musk also posted an image of a poster bearing the sinister words,

In the end, the machines will win.



Interestingly, Elon Musk, who is spearheading the growth of commercial space travel with his venture SpaceX, is also the founding member of OpenAI – a nonprofit organization that encourages the “safe” development of AIs. Although his critical stance against artificial intelligence puts him at odds with most of the representatives of the tech industry, his words do echo the notion of Stephen Hawking, who has always been voicing his disapproval of machine learning.

Ironically, what irks most of the tech giants against Elon Musk’s stance on AIs is that it was OpenAI’s sole technology that managed to beat two professional e-Sport players at the mega Dota-2 tournament and that also with just a fortnight’s practice.
