Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg trade barbs over Artificial Intelligence

Elon Musk

"I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios".

Where Zuckerberg seemed optimistic about artificial intelligence and called Musk's dire warnings overblown, Musk was pessimistic about the idea, as per LA Times.

Zuckerberg and Musk, who is chief executive of electric auto maker Tesla Inc and rocket company SpaceX, have been waging a debate at a distance over the past few days on the dangers of artificial intelligence.

"I think it's really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible".

In a live video Q&A on Facebook on Monday, Zuckerberg was asked what he thought about Musk's calls for proactive regulation of artificial intelligence and his doomsday philosophy?

The Tesla founder recently said humanity needs to act now to stop artificial intelligence and killer robots wiping us out.

"With AI especially, I am really optimistic", Zuckerberg said.

Musk shot back on Twitter.

Musk has bold ideas and the difference between him and, well a insane person is that he has a unique ability to turn those lofty, futuristic ideas into reality.

Musk told a gathering of U.S. governors this month that the potential dangers are not so imaginary, and that they should move to regulate AI.

Musk also described it as the "biggest risk we face as a civilization".

The billionaire mogul further added that he had earlier talked to Mark Zuckerberg on this subject (Artificial Intelligence) and found out that his understanding on this subject was limited.

Such a "Neuralink" would have the potential to level the playing field a bit by enabling people to directly access processing power and perhaps even download memories for storage. Last year, a SpaceX rocket exploded on a launchpad in Florida.
