Elon Musk Warns: “AI Can Cause World War III”

For years, I have been hearing from people that scarcity of water may cause the third world war. But times have changed and people are more inclined towards technology than life’s essentials. So, the technology might bring what the world doesn’t want.

In a series of tweets made today, our very own Mars-loving entrepreneur has warned that the cause of the third world war would be AI.

His warning was in response to an earlier statement given on AI by the Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind,” he said, according to a report by Russia Today.

“It comes with colossal opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict. Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.”

Later Musk didn’t hesitate to indulge himself in further discussion on the tweet thread.

He even went ahead and downplayed the threat posed by North Korea and their nuke test sessions.

What do you think would cause the World War III? AI or someone else? Hopefully, till then, Musk’s company build some tech for humans to fly off to Mars.
