Artificial Intelligence Is One Of The Biggest Risks To Humanity, According To Elon Musk

This week, on Wednesday (15) at the World Government Summit in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Elon Musk warned of artificial intelligence‘s potential to become one of the greatest threats to humanity. He proclaimed: “Artificial intelligence could be one of the most detrimental risks facing our civilization’s future.”

Elon Musk was one of the Founders of OpenAI

Artificial intelligence has been nothing short of a boon for many industries. But, without an unambiguous regulatory framework that defines the rights and responsibilities of users and companies, it may become a potential threat.

Elon Musk, one of the pioneering individuals behind OpenAi, is not directly associated with ChatGPT. Nevertheless, he strongly believes that AI can be used for great good and immense potential – but it also carries a fair share of risk. He further commented on how rapidly AI has developed over time – noting that when ChatGPT was first created, it lacked an effective user interface to appeal to the masses.

The necessity of regulating Artificial Intelligence is being robustly discussed in many countries, from Japan to the United States and Europe. Elon Musk also expressed his opinion on this matter: “I believe that AI security ought to be regulated with caution – it might even be a bigger threat than cars, planes or medicine. Even though it could potentially lead to slower AI growth, I think that would end up being beneficial”.

Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, has previously stated that regulation of Artificial Intelligence is a high priority. “I’m more anxious about potential misuses in the short term,” he commented. “It’s difficult to overemphasize how critical AI security and associated work are. I hope we can see much greater advancement in this field.” These words from one of AI’s leading innovators demonstrate his firm belief – and those held by many other prominent figures within the industry – that regulatory frameworks for controlling artificial intelligence use must be established if we want to minimize future risks to our civilization.
