It all started when Zuckerberg commented on a Facebook Live impromptu Q&A that he can’t understand the “naysayers,” people who try to drum up “doomsday scenarios” involving AI.
Zuckerberg professed to be an optimist about AI, enumerating the ways it will improve our lives, including safety and health care.
Musk has donated millions to keep AI “beneficial to humanity,” and on several occasions he has said AI could eventually become a threat to humans. Earlier this month, he called for more regulation to guide AI development.
The spat generated its shares of tweets and retweets, but no clear camp Mark or camp Elon.
Musk tweeted: “I’ve spoken to Mark about this. His knowledge of the AI is limited.”
