Within the next five years, humans will be at risk! The artificial intelligence will overtake humans, warns the billionaire Elon Musk.
The prediction marks a significant revision of previous estimations of the so-called technological singularity. When machine intelligence surpasses human intelligence and accelerates at an incomprehensible rate.
Is Artificial Intelligence the Future?
The super intelligence leaning moment will be around 2045. It was calculated by the futurist Ray Kurzweil, mentioning exponential innovations in machinery like robotics, computers, and Artificial Intelligence.
Electric car maker Tesla and the owner of a space firm SpaceX, the billionaire Mr. Elon Musk told ‘The New York Times’ in a statement, ‘By 2025, AI could surpass humans as existing developments indicate.’
In recent years, the existential risk caused by sophisticated artificial intelligence is constantly alerted by the billionaire engineer. He also helped discover the artificial intelligence research lab OpenAI in 2015.
Mr. Musk still believes that the matter is not appropriately grasped, he said, regardless of his continuous warnings.
He said in a statement, ‘My evaluation regarding why AI is neglected by very smart people is that very smart people do not believe a computer can ever be as intelligent as they are. And this is hubris and definitely false’.
In another statement, he said, ‘We are directed towards a position where AI is infinitely smarter than humans and I think that time structure is less than five years from now’.
He added, ‘But that does not mean that everything goes to misery in five years. It just means that things get unpredictable’.
The Moment of Truth
Mr. Elon Musk said that unless the technology is developed that can connect brains to computers, human beings endanger being handled like house pets by artificial intelligence.
Elon Musk revealed, a new brain-computer interface startup that is endeavoring to transplant a brain chip using a sewing machine-like device.
According to the billionaire, to allow humans to compete with artificial intelligence, Neuralink tech will be used. It will also aid in curing brain diseases, control mood, and even let people listen to music directly from these chips.
To guarantee assistance for strict guidelines for the advancement of innovative Artificial Intelligence, both Mr. Musk and Mr. Kurzweil were among renowned artificial intelligence scholars.
An open letter issued by the Future of Life Institute (FLI) summarized a set of rules considered essential to prevent an out-of-control AI, as well as the end of time situation including deadly autonomous weapons.
The institute said, ‘We expect that these beliefs will deliver information for robust debate and motivating objectives for how the power of Artificial Intelligence can be used to enhance everybody’s lives in coming years.’
According to reports, Elon Musk was an initial stakeholder in ‘DeepMind’, which sold to Google for over 500 million dollars.
He said, ‘I think they are really advancing at a hastening rate, far faster than people realize’.
