Elon Musk is famous for his futuristic gambles, but Silicon Valley’s latest rush to embrace artificial intelligence scares him. Inside his efforts to influence the rapidly advancing field and its proponents, and to save humanity from machine-learning overlords. is rapidly developing but still far from the powerful, self-evolving software that haunts Musk. Peter Thiel, the billionaire venture capitalist and Donald Trump adviser who co-founded Pay Pal with Musk and others—and who in December helped gather skeptical Silicon Valley titans, including Musk, for a meeting with the president-elect—told me a story about an investor in Deep Mind who joked as he left a meeting that he ought to shoot Hassabis on the spot, because it was the last chance to save the human race. It probably hadn’t eased his mind when one of Hassabis’s partners in Deep Mind, Shane Legg, stated flatly, “I think human extinction will probably occur, and technology will likely play a part in this.”Before Deep Mind was gobbled up by Google, in 2014, as part of its A. shopping spree, Musk had been an investor in the company. You know all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water and he’s like, yeah, he’s sure he can control the demon? When they would return to the lab after a break, they’d say, “O.It was just a friendly little argument about the fate of humanity. Elon Musk began warning about the possibility of A. He told me that his involvement was not about a return on his money but rather to keep a wary eye on the arc of A. K., let’s get back to work summoning.”Musk wasn’t laughing. Elon Musk smiled when I mentioned to him that he comes across as something of an Ayn Rand-ian hero.We've only just met, but Jackie can't take her eyes off of me.

Demis Hassabis, a leading creator of advanced artificial intelligence, was chatting with Elon Musk, a leading doomsayer, about the perils of artificial intelligence. I.: “It gave me more visibility into the rate at which things were improving, and I think they’re really improving at an accelerating rate, far faster than people realize. “Elon’s crusade” (as one of his friends and fellow tech big shots calls it) against unfettered A. “I have heard that before,” he said in his slight South African accent.
They are two of the most consequential and intriguing men in Silicon Valley who don’t live there. An unassuming but competitive 40-year-old, Hassabis is regarded as the Merlin who will likely help conjure our A. Mostly because in everyday life you don’t see robots walking around. But Roombas aren’t going to take over the world.”In a startling public reproach to his friends and fellow techies, Musk warned that they could be creating the means of their own destruction. of its parent company, Alphabet, could have perfectly good intentions but still “produce something evil by accident”—including, possibly, “a fleet of artificial intelligence-enhanced robots capable of destroying mankind.”At the World Government Summit in Dubai, in February, Musk again cued the scary organ music, evoking the plots of classic horror stories when he noted that “sometimes what will happen is a scientist will get so engrossed in their work that they don’t really realize the ramifications of what they’re doing.” He said that the way to escape human obsolescence, in the end, may be by “having some sort of merger of biological intelligence and machine intelligence.” This Vulcan mind-meld could involve something called a neural lace—an injectable mesh that would literally hardwire your brain to communicate directly with computers. “Your phone and your computer are extensions of you, but the interface is through finger movements or speech, which are very slow.” With a neural lace inside your skull you would flash data from your brain, wirelessly, to your digital devices or to virtually unlimited computing power in the cloud. “She obviously has a fairly extreme set of views, but she has some good points in there.”But Ayn Rand would do some re-writes on Elon Musk.
Hassabis, a co-founder of the mysterious London laboratory Deep Mind, had come to Musk’s Space X rocket factory, outside Los Angeles, a few years ago. This did nothing to soothe Musk’s anxieties (even though he says there are scenarios where A. He told Bloomberg’s Ashlee Vance, the author of the biography , that he was afraid that his friend Larry Page, a co-founder of Google and now the C. “For a meaningful partial-brain interface, I think we’re roughly four or five years away.”Musk’s alarming views on the dangers of A. She would make his eyes gray and his face more gaunt.
They were in the canteen, talking, as a massive rocket part traversed overhead. She would refashion his public demeanor to be less droll, and she would not countenance his goofy giggle.
