Facebook, Elon Musk, and the Artificial Intelligence Problem

On Thursday, Elon Musk offended the executive of Facebook. Facebook exec criticized his knowledge of artificial intelligence (AI).

Jerome Pesenti is Facebook’s head of artificial intelligence. Thus, Musk responded to Pesenti that “Facebook sucks.”

It is because earlier, Pesenti tweeted that Musk has no idea what when he is talking about artificial intelligence. The response was about the CNBC article concerning the SpaceX and Tesla CEO’s complicated relationship with the artificial intelligence community.

Musk was extremely vocal about artificial intelligence. In 2017, Musk even warned that technology is the biggest risk of humanity.

Moreover, Musk warned that artificial intelligence could cause World War III that same year.

Pesenti, wrote in his twee, that there is no such thing as Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). Moreover, he added that we are nowhere near to match human intelligence.

The CNBC article cited several unnamed artificial intelligence researchers from different companies who described Musk’s comments on the technology as “inappropriate.” Moreover, they urged the public not to take Musk’s views on artificial intelligence too seriously.

Must have also invented the technology, despite his criticism of artificial intelligence. Notably, he created in United Kingdom-based DeepMind. Later, Google purchased DeepMind.

Moreover, he is a co-founder of the neurotechnology company Neuralink. The company is developing ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect computers and humans.

Nonetheless, that is not the first time when Musk is critical about Facebook. He pulled the Tesla and SpaceX, in 2018, pages from the social network in response to the scandal of Cambridge Analytica.

Elon Musk Speech

There was the National Governors Association Summer Meeting in Rhode Island, on July 15. In his speech, Musk said that the government needed to regulate artificial intelligence before there is no turning back proactively. He described artificial intelligence as the most significant risk for civilization.

He said that they do not know how to react because it seems so ethereal until people see robots going down the street, killing people. Musk thinks that artificial intelligence is a rare case where, instead of reactive, we need to be proactive in regulation. It is because he believes by the time we are reactive in artificial intelligence regulation, it is too late.

Musk adds that the regulation of artificial intelligence must start now because of the bureaucratic nature of it.

Musk said that regulation takes forever. In the past, artificial intelligence has been wrong. Nevertheless, it was not something that represented a significant risk to the existence of human civilization.

Musk, with several other tech luminaries, for instance, Stephen Hawking, warned about artificial intelligence risk before. It is the first time he has called for preemptive regulation that surrounds the technology.

Nevertheless, the tech billionaire is using artificial intelligence at Tesla to help to usher in autonomous driving. Moreover, he is the co-founder of OpenAI. OpenAI describes itself as a non-profit artificial intelligence research company. The company enacts and discovers the path to safe artificial general intelligence.

Moreover, Musk started a company called Neuralink. It designed for connecting the brain of humans to computer software.
