‘AI will create an immortal dictator to wipe out humans’

 New Delhi, April 7: If not regulated or controlled soon, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will become an “immortal dictator” and there will be no escape for humans, Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk has warned. In a new documentary on AI, Musk said: “At least when there’s an evil dictator, that human is going to die. But for an AI there would be no death. It would live forever, and then you’d have an immortal dictator, from which we could never escape”. “If AI has a goal and humanity just happens to be in the way, it will destroy humanity as a matter of course without even thinking about it. No hard feelings,” Musk told Chris Paine, the director of the new documentary titled “Do You Trust This Computer?” Paine had earlier interviewed Musk for the documentary titled “Who Killed The Electric Car?”. Musk has always been a critic of AI and asked for stiff regulations to curb the technology. In a recent tweet, Musk said that people should be more concerned with AI than the risk posed by North Korea. (IANS)
