Elon Musk warns of our ‘biggest existential threat’

Elon Musk just got biblical on the topic of artificial intelligence. In fact, he called it “our biggest existential threat”. This from a man working hard to make it possible for you to take a snooze behind the wheel during your morning commute.

“With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon,” the Tesla boss said Friday in an interview at MIT (see video above). “ In all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, it’s like, he’s sure he can control the demon.”

And, as Musk pointed out, that usually doesn’t work out so well.
