Elon Musk claims Artificial Intelligence will be smarter than the humans within the next 5 years
Elon Reeve Musk is an engineer, industrial designer, technology entrepreneur, and philanthropist. He is the founder, CEO, CTO and chief designer of SpaceX; also early investor, CEO and product architect of Tesla, founder of The Boring Company; co-founder of Neuralink; and co-founder and initial co-chairman of OpenAI.
In computer science, artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, unlike the natural intelligence displayed by humans and animals. Leading AI textbooks define the field as the study of “intelligent agents”: any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals.
Colloquially, the term “artificial intelligence” is often used to describe machines (or computers) that mimic “cognitive” functions that humans associate with the human mind, such as “learning” and “problem-solving”. There are multiple things that you use in your day to day lifestyle are related to AI.
And growing at the current pace it is possible that Artificial Intelligence may overtake humans n terms of smartness in the next few years. Well, the CEO of TESLA and SpaceX, Elon Musk, has also his say on AI.
“We are headed toward a situation where AI is vastly smarter than humans. I think that the time frame is less than five years from now. But that doesn’t mean that everything goes to hell in five years. It just means that things get unstable or weird,” Musk said in an interview with New York Times over the weekend.
Musk has also mentioned his view on AI multiple times in the past wherein 2016 he said humans risk being treated like house pets by artificial intelligence unless the technology is developed that can connect brains to computers.
In October 2015, Elon Musk, Sam Altman, and other investors announced the formation of OpenAI, pledging over US$1 billion to the venture. The organization stated they would “freely collaborate” with other institutions and researchers by making its patents and research open to the public, However, On February 21, 2018, Musk resigned his board seat, citing “a potential future conflict (of interest)” with Tesla AI development for self-driving cars, but remained a donor.
