He is the founder, CEO, CTO, and chief designer of SpaceX.

So I’m not against the advancement of AI – I want to be really clear about this. But I do think that we should be extremely careful.

Mark my words, AI is far more dangerous than nukes…why do we have no regulatory oversight?

If there is a superintelligence who’s utility function is something that’s detrimental to humanity, then it will have a very bad effect… it could be something like getting rid of spam email… well the best way to get rid of spam is to get rid of… humans.

AI is a rare case where I think we need to be proactive in regulation than be reactive.

Worth reading Superintelligence by Bostrom.

Worth reading Superintelligence by Bostrom. We need to be super careful with AI. Potentially more dangerous than nukes.

I am not normally an advocate of regulation and oversight…I think one should generally err on the side of minimizing those things…but this is a case where you have a very serious danger to the public.

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…It’s just like if we’re building a road and an anthill just happens to be in the way, we don’t hate ants, we’re just building a road.

Govts don’t need to follow normal laws. They will obtain AI developed by companies at gunpoint, if necessary.

I have exposure to the most cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned by it…AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization in a way that car accidents, airplane crashes, faulty drugs, or bad food were not — they were harmful to a set of individuals within society, of course, but they were not harmful to society as a whole.

Nobody likes being regulated | Elon Musk Quotes on AI

Nobody likes being regulated, but everything (cars, planes, food, drugs, etc) that’s a danger to the public is regulated. AI should be too.

The pace of (AI) progress is faster than people realize. It would be fairly obvious if you saw a robot walking around talking and behaving like a person, you’d be like ‘Whoa… that’s like… what’s that?”… that would be really obvious. What’s not obvious is a huge server bank in a dark vault somewhere with an intelligence that’s potentially vastly greater than what a human mind can do. Its eyes and ears would be everywhere, every camera, every microphone, and device that’s network accessible.

I think most of the important stuff on the Internet has been built. There will be continued innovation, for sure, but the great problems of the Internet have essentially been solved.

The biggest issue I see with so-called AI experts is that they think they know more than they do, and they think they are smarter than they actually are…This tends to plague smart people. They define themselves by their intelligence and they don’t like the idea that a machine could be way smarter than them, so they discount the idea — which is fundamentally flawed.

I’m inclined to think that there should be some regulatory oversight… at the national and international level… just to make sure that we don’t do something very foolish.

Superintelligence | Elon Musk Quotes on AI

Hope we’re not just the biological boot loader for digital superintelligence. Unfortunately, that is increasingly probable.

Good primer on the exponential advancement of technology, particularly AI.

I’m interested in things that change the world or that affect the future and wondrous, new technology where you see it, and you’re like, ‘Wow, how did that even happen? How is that possible?

If you go back a few hundred years, what we take for granted today would seem like magic-being able to talk to people over long distances, to transmit images, flying, accessing vast amounts of data like an oracle. These are all things that would have been considered magic a few hundred years ago.

Most people don’t understand just how quickly machine intelligence is advancing, it’s much faster than almost anyone realized, even within Silicon Valley… (When asked “Why is that dangerous?”): If there is a superintelligence… particularly if it is engaged in recursive self-improvement.

I’m just trying to think about the future and not be sad.

Excellent and funny intro article about Artificial Superintelligence! Highly recommend reading .

Robots will be able to do everything better than us…I am not sure exactly what to do about this. This is really the scariest problem to me.

(Considering nuclear research/weaponry) …releasing energy is easy; containing that energy safely is very difficult. And so I think the right emphasis on AI research is on AI safety. We should put vastly more effort into AI safety than we should into advancing AI in the first place.

I don’t know… but there are some scary outcomes… and we should try to make sure that the outcomes are good and not bad.

I hate when people confuse education with intelligence, you can have a bachelor’s degree and still be an idiot.

Pay close attention to the development of AI, we need to be very careful in how we adopt AI and make sure that researchers don’t get carried away.

AI will be the best or worst thing ever for humanity.

China, Russia, soon all countries with strong computer science. Competition for AI superiority at the national level most likely the cause of WW3.

  1. Welp, I guess Musk isn’t too interested in Bitcoin anymore. His tweets about Tesla’s BTC have been affecting the market substantially. I think I need to jump on Coinbase and do some trades. Someone take away that man’s Twitter!
