For years Elon Musk has raised concerns over the perils of Artificial Intelligence taking control of the things at a higher level and be potentially dangerous to the human race in the future. Once again, he has talked about the risk of AI overload and asked for having a regulation for the use of AI technology.
Tesla and SpaceX founder has said that he is especially concerned about the AI projects being developed by Google DeepMind.
DeepMind AI Like the One That Crushes Humans AT All Games
He said that the AI being built by DeepMind is dangerous like Wargames plot,
In an interview with the New York Times, he said, “Just the nature of the AI that they’re building is one that crushes all humans at all games,” “I mean, it’s basically the plotline in ‘Wargames.'”

Like Wargames Plot
To detail in Wargames movie, a hacker gets control of the AI-powered national supercomputer that can run simulations for war. The AI attempted to play Global Thermonuclear War and convinced officers that the Soviet Union attack was imminent.
AI Can Surpass Human Intelligence
Elon Musk said that AI would surpass human intellect in a few years, which would have a dangerous impact not realized. Musk had invested in DeepMind at the early stages, after which the company was sold to Google in 2014. In 2017 he said that he spent so he can look over the AI developments around.
Need to Regulate AI
Artificial Intelligence should be regulated else it would be uncontrollable. Elon Musk believes the technology should have a different implementation, and people do not fully understand the capability of AI. He feels that people think AI is superhuman in an earlier interview. He instead believes that AI is going to be much more than superhuman. AI can eventually be smarter than the smartest human being on earth.
AI Smarter Than Smartest People
Musk said that smart people often overlook AI as they feel that a computer cannot be as smart as them. However, this is a false assumption, and AI can be uncontrollable if not regulated.
Check on Artificial Intelligence Development
Elon Musk’s fear has time and again raised the question of regulation of AI and a check on how various tech companies develop AI.
