Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk issued a stark warning, noting that artificial intelligence is one of the biggest risks to the future of civilization.
"One of the biggest risks to the future of civilization is artificial intelligence. It is both positive and negative. It has great promise and great opportunity, but with it comes great danger," Elon Musk said.
Regulation of artificial intelligence is crucial. Musk proposed the creation of a supervisory board that would act like the bodies that regulate other technologies potentially dangerous to humans, such as aviation, automobiles or pharmaceuticals, noting that the importance of safety must not be overlooked when developing this type of technology.
