When it comes to the emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, which have the power to change the way we lead our lives, it’s good to know that eminent tech personalities are discussing AI’s impacts in public space.
Just recently, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg expressed his personal viewpoints on AI and its future implications (Via: Business Insider).
It’s worth noting that earlier this year in March, Elon Musk called the dangers of AI “far more dangerous than nukes.” When asked about Musk’s viewpoint, Zuckerberg hoped that AI will help cars drive more safely, cure diseases, and make our lives safer.
Talking about the skepticism of others, he said: “We need to make sure that we don’t get too negative on this stuff.”
Further supporting his belief, he said that cases of individual failure shouldn’t be used as “an argument to slow down progress.”
However, he seemed to support the need for a general consensus on AI ethics that should be followed while designing new products.
It’s worth noting that, in the past, Musk has clarified that his worries pertain to the “general AI” — not the “functional AI” being used in specific situations like self-driving cars.
