Musk: artificial intelligence more dangerous than nuclear weapons
During the SXSW conference in Austin, USA, Musk said that two things kt re most worrisome to him are the production difficulties associated with the Tesla Model 3 electric car and the dangers of developing artificial intelligence.
– We are really very close to creating artificial intelligence, kt ra will be able to do much more than anyone on Earth. This scares me. And the pace of progress is exponential – admitted Musk.
Recalled AlphaGo algorithms, kt re have beaten the best humans in one of the world’s most challenging strategy games – go. He added that artificial intelligence has been learning the game for 6-9 months. – No one predicted such rapid progress – Musk stated.
At the same time, he admitted that advances in artificial intelligence will allow autonomous cars to master the „of all the modes in driving” by the end of 2019. Sam will benefit from it. Autopilot 2.0 installed in Tesla cars will, he said, drive vehicles safer than humans by 100-200 percent. – Drivers will be able to sleep at the wheel – admitted.
The pace of development in this area, however, worries Musk. The SpaceX chief said that while he is not usually in favor of regulation and oversight, he might make an exception in the case of artificial intelligence. The billionaire stressed the need to regulate the development of the j artificial intelligence to keep humanity safe.
– We are dealing with a situation that rej there is a very serious threat to humanity, which is why a public institution must be created, which ra has insight and oversight in the works to develop artificial intelligence. This is extremely important – Musk pointed out.
– I think the danger of artificial intelligence is much greater than the danger of nuclear warheads – stressed Musk.
The visionary also spoke on the subject of a manned flight to Mars, about which rym in his earlier statements repeatedly mentioned. He admitted that a missile capable of doing this will be ready next year. – I think we will be able to perform kr tkie, test flights likely in the first half of next year – assessed.
M He also w as about bases on Mars and the Moon. – Such bases could help c in the regeneration of life on Earth and it is very important to create them before a possible third world war. In the past century we have experienced two ch of the great world wars – three, if you count „cold war”. It is unlikely that we will never have a world war again – Musk warned.
