Zuckerberg slams Musk’s predictions !

As artificial intelligence continues to grow, technology could soon bring humanity to a safer, healthier future, according to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg – and he says arguing otherwise would be ‘pretty irresponsible.’

In a Facebook Live session this weekend, Zuckerberg fielded questions from users while barbequing in his Palo Alto backyard, addressing everything from AI to the ongoing issue of global internet accessibility.

When asked his thoughts on AI in light of recent concerns expressed by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Zuckerberg explained that he’s ‘really optimistic’ about its development, as it holds potential to bring ‘a dramatic improvement in people’s lives.’

During the Facebook Live session on Sunday, Zuckerberg responded to several questions, including one which said:

‘I watched a recent interview with Elon Musk, and his largest fear for future was AI. What are your thoughts on AI, and how it could affect the world?’

Taking a different stance than Musk and others who have warned of the potential dangers of technology, Zuckerberg argued that AI will have a number of positive impacts on our daily lives.

‘I have pretty strong opinions on this,’ Zuckerberg said.

‘I’m really optimistic. I’m an optimistic person in general – I think you can build things and the world gets better. But, with AI especially.

‘And I think that people who are naysayers and kind of try to drum up these doomsday scenarios are – I don’t understand it.

‘It’s really negative and in some ways I actually think it’s pretty irresponsible.’

Zuckerberg argued that these improvements could come as soon as the next 5-10 years, rippling across several facets of life.

And, in some ways, he explains, these benefits are already here.

  1. Mark Zuckerberg is hardly giving an objective opinion, Facebook will surely want to use various forms of AI in the next 5-10 years.
    Elon Musk on the other hand is also almost certainly going to use a AI on Tesla products and who knows where it may be used is Space travel and possibly on the moon or Mars.
    I believe Elon Musk’s comments on AI show a more responsible attitude.

  2. It doesn’t make humanity safer … it makes them less responsible, careless and more reliant upon in blaming “others” when it comes to liabilities
