Elon Musk founded Paypal, SpaceX, SolarCity, and Tesla. He also is the CEO of a company called Neuralink which is learning about how to connect the brain directly to a computer. By some this is thought to be the one possible way to stop a malicious A.I. And he is chairman on a company called OpenAI, which hopes to develop friendly AI.
Recently, the U.S. National Governors Association had a meeting and invited Elon Musk to speak (probably to court him on building factories in their states). The whole interview is good but at 48:00, the question of AI comes up. He warns the governors about the threat of AI, calling it the greatest threat to humanity, and saying that they should be afraid. The whole thing is very surreal and feels like a news segment from a sci-fi movie.
I thought some here might be interested to watch, hopefullly it hasn’t already been posted.
