Elon Musk says anyone who thinks there are no risks in AI is an idiot

Artificial intelligence has been the hottest topic in the news of the tech world. In addition to the various services and solutions in which this technology is integrated, we also have the concerns of various companies and personalities connected to the sector. Recently, Elon Musk said that anyone who thinks there are no risks in AI is an idiot.

The controversy is installed between those who defend and oppose the evolution of Artificial Intelligence. Elon Musk is one of the proponents of the theory that caution should be exercised in this sector due to the various dangers that this technology poses. In this sense, Tesla's CEO, as well as other popular names, signed an open letter at the end of March to stop AI systems.

Elon Musk says anyone who thinks there are no risks in AI is an idiot

Recently, the electric car magnate gave an interview to Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight show, where he claimed that Artificial Intelligence has the potential to destroy civilization. Then, in response to this publication on the social network Twitter, Elon Musk made it clear that anyone who considers this risk to be 0% is an idiot.

In the interview, Musk explains that AI is more dangerous than a poorly managed aircraft design or the production of a poorly made car, as it may then have the potential to destroy civilization, even if that probability is small.

Therefore, the warning is essentially for the use that will be given to AI, since there are no regulations and many countries are already investigating this technology for military purposes and for cyber attacks. But on the other hand, Elon Musk recently created X.AI, his company dedicated to artificial intelligence.

Europol has previously said that the ChatGPT service can facilitate crime and this system has even been banned in Italy. Furthermore, it is estimated that AI will affect 300 million jobs in the near future.
