Billionaires WAR! Mark Zuckerberg Fights Elon Musk On Social Media Over Dangers Of Artificial Intelligence



Tech giants, Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk, took to social media to
throw jabs at each other over artificial Intelligence. Musk, the Tesla
and SpaceX CEO, believes AI poses a risk to humans, while Facebook
founder Zuckerberg believes AI is the future of humanity and would make
the world better.

We all know that Zuckerberg is pro artificial Intelligence, AI,
and created his own personal assistant imbued with artificial
intelligence, called Jarvis, which plays with his family and meets a
number of their needs. On the other hand, Elon Musk, the Tesla and
SpaceX CEO, believes artificial intelligence poses a risk to the
existence of civilisation and he continually pushes for its proactive
regulation.

It all started when earlier in July, Musk told a gathering of US
governors that artificial intelligence will cause massive job
disruption, that robots “will be able to do everything better than
us.” He encouraged the governors to move to regulate AI.

“I keep sounding the alarm bell, but until people see robots going
down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react, because it
seems so ethereal,” he said.
Musk also expressed dire concern over a future shared with robots, saying:

“I have exposure to the most cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned by it.”
Zuckerberg dismissed these concerns on Sunday afternoon from his
backyard in Palo Alto, California. While smoking meats, he went live on
Facebook to touch on the topic of artificial Intelligence and took
questions from viewers.  A user sent a question, which Zuckerberg read
out loud:

“I watched a recent interview with Elon Musk and his largest fear for
future was AI. What are your thoughts on AI and how it could affect the
world?”
Zuckerberg replied that he was opposed to the spread of fear surrounding the potential of artificial intelligence.

“I have pretty strong opinions on this. I am optimistic,” says
Zuckerberg. “I think you can build things and the world gets better. But
with AI especially, I am really optimistic. And I think people who are
naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios — I just, I don’t
understand it. It’s really negative and in some ways, I actually think
it is pretty irresponsible.”

He added: “In the next five to 10 years, AI is going to deliver so many improvements in the quality of our lives.”

Zuckerberg says artificial intelligence is already helping diagnose
diseases. He also mentioned self-driving cars and said they will help
reduce car accidents.

“Whenever I hear people saying AI is going to hurt people in the
future, I think yeah, you know, technology can generally always be used
for good and bad, and you need to be careful about how you build it and
you need to be careful about what you build and how it is going to be
used. But people who are arguing for slowing down the process of
building AI, I just find that really questionable. I have a hard time
wrapping my head around that,” Zuckerberg says.
Two days later, during an exchange on Twitter, Musk was asked about
Zuckerberg’s Facebook Live comment and he wrote that he has discussed
the topic with Zuckerberg and that “his understanding of the subject is
limited.”

Musk has been issuing warnings about the dangers of AI for years. He
expressed concerns that humans will become second-class citizens in a
future dominated by AI or we will face a Terminator-style uprising where
smart machines could start wars or kill people in streets. To avoid
this, over a year ago, Musk took part in creating a nonprofit research
company devoted to developing artificial intelligence that will help
people and not hurt them.

This will not be the first time Zuckerberg and Musk will have a
public squabble. Last September, SpaceX was scheduled to launch an
internet-beaming satellite intended for use by Facebook’s Free Basics
project in Africa. However, the Falcon 9 rocket exploded, destroying
both the rocket and the AMOS-6 satellite that Facebook planned to use to
deliver internet connectivity to rural parts of Africa.

Zuckerberg was not happy and took to his Facebook page to write: “As
I’m here in Africa, I’m deeply disappointed to hear that SpaceX’s launch
failure destroyed our satellite that would have provided connectivity
to so many entrepreneurs and everyone else across the continent.”
