Have a laptop in your study? Toting a cellphone or iPad in your pocket? Be afraid — be very afraid. Newsmax on October 10, 2014, reported warnings on AI by Elon Musk. Excerpts below:

Tesla and SpaceX billionaire founder Elon Musk, arguably one of the brightest guys on the planet, envisions a dangerous future when supercomputers, equipped with hyper-advanced artificial intelligence (AI), could delete all human life as if it were just annoying spam.

“I don’t think anyone realizes how quickly artificial intelligence is advancing. Particularly if involved in recursive self-improvement … and its utility function is something that’s detrimental to humanity, then it will have a very bad effect,” Musk, speaking at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit in San Francisco, said.

It’s not the first time Musk has voiced this concern.

In August, he tweeted, “We need to be super careful with AI. Potentially more dangerous than nukes,” CNET reported.
