Elon Musk: Governments will take extreme measures to obtain AI technology

Tesla CEO Elon Musk reiterated his concerns on the threat posed by artificial intelligence in another Twitter rant Monday, reports CNBC.

During the Twitter thread, Andrew Kemendo, founder and CEO of the Mountain View, Calif.-based technology company Pair, argued "governments suck at AI, [and] it will be a corporation that builds a military that wins this." Mr. Musk responded governments will "obtain AI developed by companies at gunpoint, if necessary."

"Competition for AI superiority at [a] national level [is the] most likely cause of [World War III] [in my opinion]," Mr. Musk added.

Mr. Musk has openly expressed his anxieties related to AI in the past, and recently joined more than 100 tech industry experts in signing a letter to the United Nations begging it restrict the development of autonomous weapons.
