‘With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon.’ – Elon Musk
Here is that interview with Elon Musk, Chief Exec at Tesla Cars, expressing his concerns about artificial intelligence. The point you need to jump to in the interview if you want to cut to the chase is 12 minutes 47 seconds (not 11:20). Please note I am not responsible for any awful or inappropriate ads You Tube may impose upon you while you watch it – you know how I feel about those so just mute and look away a while.
Also, below the video, there is a link to an excellent (lightweight) BBC Radio podcast on the topic in the 5 live science series.
