Elon Musk has serious concerns about Artificial Intelligence

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla has voiced his concerns regarding Artificial Intelligence in a recent comment on Edge.com, claiming that AI may pose a serious threat to our safety in the following 5 or 10 years. The comment in question was quickly removed by the online publication, but thankfully a Reddit user managed to snatch it before it was deleted. Musk allegedly stated that AI technology is showing tremendous improvements which are happening at a fast pace, and the general public is clueless to what Artificial Intelligence may turn into, unless they have access to closed secretive groups such as Deepmind. His theory is that these technologies may be used with bad intentions, as they carry true potential to cause serious damage if leaked on the web, for instance.

“The pace of progress in artificial intelligence (I’m not referring to narrow AI) is incredibly fast. Unless you have direct exposure to groups like Deepmind, you have no idea how fast-it is growing at a pace close to exponential. The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five year timeframe. 10 years at most. This is not a case of crying wolf about something I don’t understand,” he stated.

“I am not alone in thinking we should be worried. The leading AI companies have taken great steps to ensure safety. The recognize the danger, but believe that they can shape and control the digital superintelligences and prevent bad ones from escaping into the Internet. That remains to be seen…,” Musk concluded.

Elon Musk warned about the dangers of AI in the past, claiming that the mismanagement of Artificial Intelligence may result into possible disasters. “With artificial intelligence we’re summoning the demon,” he previously stated. Renowned scientist, Stephen Hawking has also warned about the threats of AI in an Independent article posted back in May, saying that “we need to take it very seriously.” The thought of a real life I Robot scenario where the machines turn against man is both terrifying and plausible, if we were to give credit to these brilliant minds.

    eLOON Musk essentially is saying that artificial intelligence will become self-conscious, takeover and start killing people within 5-10 years. If it happens, I doubt it would be that soon. If he really believes the technology is so dangerous, so soon, then why is he advocating autonomous cars that could be used for terrorist attacks? Why is he investing in robots and AI? Is he trying to subjugate humans to AI? I think eLOON Musk is LOONy. lol

    Elon Musk is a pitchman, that ought to be in prison like Kevin Trudeau. Elon Musk and his cronies are examples of corporate greed.

    Several months ago the Tesla and Bitcoin fan boys were spamming a bunch of hype about the Tesla that was bought with Bitcoins. Beyond all the hype, it seems the truth is that it was bought by a crook with dirty money. The Tesla fan boys (the Tesla Mafia) have been cheering on & supporting organized crime.

    Blake Benthall was an employee of Elon Musk the CEO of SpaceX & Tesla Motors. Allegedly some of the laundered money was used to buy a Tesla. Elon Musk is on record making fraudulent claims about Tesla batteries. Elon Musk and his corporate shills falsely claim that Tesla batteries are non-toxic, nonhazardous, environmentally friendly and landfill safe.

    According to TESLA Motors, the high voltage battery (lithium-ion battery) can release toxic vapors; including sulfuric acid, oxides of carbon, nickel, aluminum, lithium, copper, & cobalt.

    Tesla fan boys are shills that spam slander, lies, FUD, hate, & ignorance. Tesla fan boys have no credibility and are a laughingstock. lol They ought to be in prisons or/and a mental institutions. They don’t want you to believe experts, instead they want you to believe lying, ignorant shills. They have no clue when it comes to science & technology. They are greedy people don’t care about the environment, safety or truth..

    Tesla fan boys can’t handle the truth.. Tesla fan boys fear and hate truth.

    A few examples of the hate, ignorance and lies the Tesla Mafia has spammed:

    WeaponZero “Lithium ion batteries are non-hazardous in both materials and waste”.

    WeaponZero “lithium ion batteries(non-toxic)”

    WeaponZero “There are no toxic heavy metals in a lithium ion battery”

    WeaponZero “lithium ion batteries do not pose risk if they are land filled”

    WeaponZero “lithium ion batteries are non-toxic”

    WeaponZero “As I mentioned before, heavy metals are not a bad thing just because they are heavy metals. Lithium ion batteries are considered non-toxic. The CEO of BYD even drank one”.

    WeaponZero “if a battery is discharged and not being used, even if compacted there is no issue”.

    WeaponZero “landfill fires have nothing to do with lithium ion batteries”

    WeaponZero “I have done way more research on manufacturing of batteries and heavy metals than you”

    Peter Gordon “Tesla batteries are 100% non-toxic and declared completely safe for landfill”

    Peter Gordon “Tesla lithium ion cells contain no heavy metals, nor any toxic materials”

    WeaponZero “To note, 0 Tesla batteries exploded”.

    WeaponZero “There is 0 Tesla cars at risk of fire”

    WeaponZero “Actually, those things you see flickering are not battery cells but fireworks”

    grendal “there were no explosions”.

    grendal “the car didn’t explode”.

    grendal “no car has ever exploded”.

    grendal “You also said the car exploded (it did not) and released toxic fumes when neither happened”.

    NΘΘR “This is not even an explosion”

    CMCNestT . “The battery did not explode”

    sranger “False, they are fireworks (4th of July after all)”

    Albertico “The car did not explode at all”.

    strata8 “Did not explode”.

    Tesla755 “No batteries exploded”.

    stopcrazypp “It didn’t actually explode”

    stopcrazypp “the amount of gas expelled is not enough to act like a rocket and carry a cell two stories high”

    stopcrazypp “not any sort of explosion”.

    Xixo “Teslas were actually not explosions”

    Stewart Pid “the batteries didn’t explode”

    Dave_SRQ “There haven’t been any Tesla Model S recalls”.

    sranger “I used LiFePo4 cells. They do NOT heat up when charger or discharged at up to 1000 amps so NO cooling is needed for these cells”.

    VulpineMac “They’re capacitors, not “batteries”

    grendal “Even with this stupid thief that wasn’t even wearing a seatbelt the tally is that ZERO people have died in a Tesla”.

    Greenforce88 “The guy survived”

    geoffrey bailey “zero fatalities”

    geoffrey bailey “He was lucky that didn’t kill him”.

    Albertico “the driver survived this accident”.

    grendal “the fact that the thief and his passenger are still alive after this happened is telling”.

    Simonts “The driver survived!”.

    jeepesq ‘this thief was only ‘injured’ and not killed”.

    Mirko “Guy steals car, walks away alive”.

    Peter Gordon “zero fatalities for Tesla”

    Peter Gordon “There have been zero fatalities in a Tesla”

    Peter Gordon “no fatalities”.

    Albertico “The Tesla does not have anything that can catch on fire in the front”

    WeaponZero “For this to happen to a lithium ion battery is extremely rare, though more common with lithium polymer batteries”.
    (WeaponZero doesn’t know that lithium polymer is a type of lithium ion battery) lol

    Mark Yates “NICKEL, Aluminium, Lithium – the prime components of a lithium battery are not heavy metals”

    The facts are that Tesla batteries are toxic and contain heavy metals; despite the fraudulent claims by Elon Musk and Tesla sycophants.

    According to most scientists; commonly encountered HEAVY METALS are chromium, COBALT, NICKEL, COPPER, zinc, arsenic, selenium, silver, cadmium, antimony, mercury, thallium and lead.

    On page 18 of the 2012-2013 emergency responder guide for the Tesla model S. There are sections on firefighting & fire damage related to the high voltage battery; indicating that the battery can release TOXIC vapors. Including sulfuric acid, oxides of carbon, NICKEL, aluminum, lithium, COPPER, and COBALT.

    The leaking chemicals can be so dangerous, that it seems to suggest evacuating civilians from the proximity of a Tesla battery fire and it’s plume of toxic fumes. Emergency responders should wear full protective gear & self-contained breathing equipment to protect themselves from the toxic materials from the Tesla battery..

    The facts show that Teslas have exploded. Despite that the Tesla driver was killed in West Hollywood, Tesla fan boys exploited the tragedy by spamming fraudulent claims. The Tesla driver died but was revived by emergency responders, only to die again later at the hospital. Many Tesla shills falsely claimed he did not die, some even claimed he only had minor injuries & walked away. Many denied that the Tesla battery burned, exploded or that there were toxic fumes. Etc…

    Google:

    “Photos: Stolen Tesla Splits In Half And Explodes After Crashing In West Hollywood”

    “The Tesla’s lithium battery exploded into flames that shot up several stories into the air”

    “Video shot from a nearby apartment showed burning lithium batteries popping and sending fiery debris more than three stories into the air”

    “A stolen Tesla speeding up La Brea Avenue at up to 100 miles per hour was sliced in half, and its lithium batteries exploded and burned, in a crash that injured at least six people today”

    “Tesla Model S Explodes After Accident in Mexico”

    Elon Musk & Tesla shills/fanboys are such lowlife scum that they slandered firefighters that risked their lives to put out the first highly publicized Tesla battery fire. Elon Musk and Tesla shills/fanboys slandered the firefighters claiming they shouldn’t have cut a hole through the firewall. According to the report by the firefighters, when they first tried to put out the fire with water, the fire flared up then didn’t go all the way out. They followed Elon Musk’s procedures, but Elon Musk’s procedures failed because the fire did not go all the way out because firefighters couldn’t get enough water on the battery. So the fire reignited. Firefighters then cut out the firewall and only then were able to successfully and completely extinguish the fire. Elon Musk & Tesla shills/fanboys are advocating what failed, and bashing what was successful..

    Elon Musk doesn’t care about the environment.
