I think Musk is trying to get the government to regulate AI so he can get a cap on the market. Would certainly protect Tesla from the competition of self driving cars. Even an open source competitor is doing pretty well.

Just trying to build and protect a monopoly through fear mongering.

there mighgt be some truth to it but on the other hand he is just speaking out what should be said. AI is the single bigest threat to humanity. this was my first thought when i learned about AI about 15 years ago and i didnt have to read any science fiction or peoples advices for this. AIs are algorithms and agorithms do not know when to stop exceüt they are told explicitly. there is no "enough", even hitler would look humble and an AI doesnt even need a twisted ideology or crazyness to wipe out humanity. All it needs is someone telling it to maximize his gold on a WOW account and the AI will end up trying to convert all the planets observable universes mass into WOW server memory

He's a co-founder of OpenAI. That link describes them in more detail, but essentially OpenAI is a completely not for profit company dedicated specifically to ensuring that AI isn't something that remains under control just by the wealthiest corporations and governments. And they're delivering with cutting edge research being regularly published and made completely freely available.

If you have a bit of a math background, an excellent book (a recommendation from Musk no less) is Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies by Nick Bostrom. It lays out the main issues and conundrums we're dealing with, with AI, in a mostly mathematical fashion - and does so in an incredibly compelling fashion. That book also had a large influence on, for instance, Bill Gates as well.

I think a major problem is that most people are relatively incapable of forward thinking. The world ten years from now will likely scarcely resemble the one we have today. People don't really have an intuitive grasp for how fast technology and AI are evolving. In 2010 there were no [publicly known] self driving cars at all. In 2012 Google developing an AI that could detect cats in YouTube videos was literally headline news in AI. Now we have self driving cars on the roads trained using deep learning that have driven millions of miles and are already (in a very premature state) showing crash rates lower than humans. Can you believe all of this has happened in just 7 years? And AI progress is accelerating exponentially. What we will see in the next 7 years will likely dwarf what we have seen in the past 7 years.

What does that mean? I think the honest (and only) answer is that nobody really knows. And now we are already doing things like racing to arm 'killer robots' with AI systems. What could go wrong?

Elon made all of Tesla's patents public domain for the sole purpose of encouraging competition, since that's how you foster innovation and interest in the industry.

Right? Elon taught himself rocket science. Zuckerdouche stole a website idea from friends, and then bragged about how stupid people are for using it.

Elon Musk studied physics, helped pioneered the internet (businesses), and owns several major tech companies.

The other guy is a person who barely coded a web page, has a questionable origin with that webpage, and got really lucky to dominate social media.

Yeah, I'll trust Elon Musk more than the fake coder. Although Musk does exaggerate the issues of AI, much like climate people exaggerate climate change.

Zukerberg didn't get rich because he's a genius. He got rich because he made a website that went viral and it wasn't even the first of it's kind. He just got lucky and he's not a genius.

I'm not a big Elon fan, but Zuckerberg is just a guy whole stole a website, did baby's first coding on it, then hired people to make it better.

I know he did some degree of theft, but what exactly did he steal? I never cared enough about Fuckerberg to research it myself, but if you're willing to share your knowledge.

He was hired by schoolmates to develop a website, because of his campus fame for being the "resident hacker" who seemed to have an almost magical way of getting people to use his shitty joke-sites, in droves. Little did they know that the Jewish-trickery was strong in him; blinded by greed, they gave their ideas and rough code to someone even greedier than them. Mark proceeded to stall, and give them excuses as to why it's taking so long to complete the project— to avoid litigation and keep them passive, so they don't stop him before he could finish.

He completed and launched the early version of facebook, and said schoolmates only found out, later on, through the school newspaper. They were still under the impression that he was working on finishing their site. By this point, it was too late. They successfully sued facebook and later settled for an "undisclosed sum".

He took the Winklesvoss twins idea, stalled their website since he agreed to help build it, built his own. Bam, Facebook. It's why he had to pay them a fuck ton of money. His previous project was a literal hot or not clone (rip off) for Harvard. He's no genius. He's on par with Moot from 4 chan. Steal someone else's website, and get lucky with popularity.

It wasn't easy getting the CIA to help him be successful. He had to take their drugs that made him bug-eyed and do lots of nasty shit in their satanic rituals.

Mark zuckerburg is a classic example of someone who is in a position way beyond their abilities.

CEO of billion dollar company

-no social skills -nerdy Jew -very little creativity -a penchant for government service

What does that add up to.

100% chance he is a planted shill. And Facebook is not a real company, they are a tool of surveillance and control. While Elon Musk is simply a limited hang out, meant to theorize and suck down government grants to keep the real creatives and inventors supressed. People think we are getting a hyper loop when we can't even manage high speed rail in this country.

What's funny is that Elon Musk dropped out of the Hyper Loop some time back. He had his people draft up basic concepts of it, shared it around, left, and allowed the leftists sciencetheists go ''OOOOH this will be better than those evil cars and planes!!''

All while not realizing the sheer scope and difficulty of such a project.

Just recently he tweeted that leaders on the east coast have him The verbal go ahead for a New York to D.C. Loop. Many local politicians followed suit by saying what the hell are you talking about...

Also, PSA: Elon Musk was Hillary's biggest campaign contributor out of California. Look it up, the more you know.

Don't let political feelings get in the way of reality. Elon understands as much as anyone on this topic, it's absurd to say he's average. As well as being involved in the engineering of the best self driving cars in the world, he also has his own research foundation dedicated to the future of AI and is one of the most respected voices in the community.

In the near future, "AI" will be able to figure out what we've know all along but keep trying to suppress: that we don't have a violence or gun problem, we just have a black problem.
