Elon Mask Says Artificial Intelligence Could Trigger A Third World War




famous American entrepreneur Elon Mask has come back to warn that artificial intelligence can be the greatest existential threat to humanity, warning this time that it could be the cause of a third world war.

Masque, who founded and runs a number of companies, including space company SpaceX and the electric car maker Tesla, talked about how artificial intelligence could lead to the end of the world.

“China, Russia, and soon all countries have the power in computer science. Competition for excellence in artificial intelligence at the state level is likely to trigger a third world war, in my opinion. ”

Mask’s fears were prompted by a statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin that “artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia, but for all mankind … It (artificial intelligence) brings tremendous opportunities, but also comes with unpredictable threats. Whoever becomes the leader in this area will become the ruler of the world. ”

Masak explained his thoughts to the public. He explained that he was not only concerned about the possibility of a global leader starting the war, but also of excessive caution that artificial intelligence itself might decide that “the [preemptive] strike is the most likely path to victory.”

Masek is no less concerned about North Korea’s growing nuclear ambitions, stressing that if Pyongyang launches a nuclear missile, it will be “suicidal,” yet it has no clues that would lead to a global war even if it did. He believes that artificial intelligence is “much more dangerous” than the country led by Kim Jong.

Mask’s fear of the AI ​​war was a driving force in his public statements for a long time. Last month, Mask was one of more than 100 sites calling for a UN-led embargo on weapons of mass destruction.

“As soon as they are developed, independent lethal weapons will allow armed conflict on a wider scale than ever before, and in periods of time faster than human beings understand.” “These can be terrorist weapons and weapons mocked by terrorists against the innocent population and weapons are vulnerable to penetration in undesirable ways.”
