Should Developers Be Wary of AI?

  • By Developer.com Staff

Vanity Fair has a very lengthy article about Elon Musk's concerns regarding artificial intelligence (AI). It also provides a glimpse of the attitudes towards AI throughout the tech community, and it is well worth the read. Here are a few choice Musk quotes from the article:

  • “With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon. You know all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water and he’s like, yeah, he’s sure he can control the demon? Doesn’t work out.”
  • “Man has the power to act as his own destroyer—and that is the way he has acted through most of his history. We are the first species capable of self-annihilation.”
  • “We’re already cyborgs. Your phone and your computer are extensions of you, but the interface is through finger movements or speech, which are very slow. For a meaningful partial-brain interface, I think we’re roughly four or five years away.”
