Elon Musk, the genius behind Tesla and SpaceX, is worried about “Terminator”-like outcome from the progress in artificial intelligence
In his recent interview to CNBC, Musk mentioned that he was an investor in DeepMind and Vicarious artificial intelligence startups before Google acquired them. Both companies develop general-purpose learning algorithms based on neural networks and both are pretty secretive about their findings. Perhaps investors have better insight and so it makes sense for Musk to invest in these companies to keep his finger on the pulse of the developments in artificial intelligence.
