Zuckerberg: It's 'Irresponsible' To Spread Fear Over Artificial Intelligence

25 July, 2017, 13:09 | Author: Pamela Mathis

During a Facebook Live chat on Sunday, a viewer asked Zuckerberg what he thought about the future of A.I., citing Musk's comments. Earlier this month for example, he said that AI will cause massive job disruption and that robots "will be able to do everything better than us." .

Musk, who co-founded the artificial intelligence research group OpenAI, has gone on record to express his significant concerns over the rapid development of AI technology. The businessman noted that it has access to the most advanced technologies of artificial intelligence.

"AI is a rare case where I think we need to be proactive in regulation instead of reactive". I don't understand it. "What are your thoughts on AI, and how it could affect the world?"

Taking a different stance than Musk and others who have warned of the potential dangers of technology, Zuckerberg argued that AI will have a number of positive impacts on our daily lives. "One of the things that I do feel strongly about, and I know a lot of people in my generation agree with, is that we really want to give everyone the opportunity to go pursue what matters to them and to go make a big difference", he says during the Facebook live. In February, he said that any person who doesn't learn about A.I.is "going to be a dinosaur within 3 years", and again cautioned that major job losses will soon occur. But, with AI especially.

"I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios - I just I don't understand it".

'It's really negative and in some ways I actually think it's pretty irresponsible'. "In the next five to 10 years, AI is going to deliver so many improvements in the quality of our lives".

Wall Street is only getting more bullish on the stock, with 14 of analysts who cover MRK having a buy-equivalent rating. Beaufort Securities maintained Horizonte Minerals Plc (LON:HZM) on Monday, August 17 with "Speculative Buy" rating.


And, in some ways, he explains, these benefits are already here. "If you can eliminate that with A.I., that is going to be just a dramatic improvement in people's lives". Whenever I hear people saying AI is going to hurt people in the future.

In his defense of A.I., Zuckerberg specifically called out self-driving cars.

"One of the top causes of death for people is vehicle accidents still and if you can eliminate that with AI, that is going to be just a dramatic improvement", Zuckerberg said.

Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg's understanding of the future of artificial intelligence (AI) is "limited", as the spat between the two tech bosses continues.

'I have a hard time wrapping my head around that, ' Zuckerberg said.

'Because if you're arguing against AI, then you're arguing against safer cars that aren't going to have accidents. "One of the top causes of death for people is auto accidents still and if you can eliminate that with AI, that is going to be just a dramatic improvement".
