Elon Musk: AI more concerning than North Korea


Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Friday said that people should be more concerned with Artificial Intelligence (AI) than the risk posed by escalating tensions with North Korea.

“If you’re not concerned about AI safety, you should be. Vastly more risk than North Korea,” Musk tweeted on Friday.

Musk’s comments were in reference to his nonprofit startup, OpenAI, defeating several of the world’s best players at a video game.

Musk has called for regulation of AI in the past, saying just last month that regulation is needed now or “by the time we are reactive in AI regulation, it’s too late.”

His comments also follow heightened tensions between the U.S. and North Korea and ratcheted up rhetoric from President Trump.

The communist regime has continued testing and expanding its nuclear program, reporting this week that it can now fit nuclear warheads on missiles.

Trump responded on Tuesday saying that if North Korea continued its threats it would be met with “fire and fury.” North Korea then responded that it would strike Guam in mid-August.

Musk argued that the threat of AI is greater than North Korea.


he keeps telling us this..are we listening?

  1. what does Musk know? is he a time traveller? a part of Philadelphia experiment 2.0?
    what kind of contracts&projects does he have?

    revisiting Matrix, the movie, I can see it more and more as a predictive programming…preparing us for the desired by them future, when we all will be chipped, so plugged into the net, and so downgraded into bio/robots.
    and yes, human body^mind is much like a battery, it-s an energy emitter…

    • the matrix was a very very important movie..the 2 sequels didnt do the original any favours imo..

      musk could just be a front man..

      • 🙂 we’ve discussed that before:
        as xxx says, I don’t consume hollywood movies, i.e. I don’t believe Matrix was done without gain for the system. it was entirely “they” movie: beginning with the writers of the screenplay, then the producers, the distribution, etc, etc, etc…it was all within the “clan”. no way it was not made “for profit”, another step forward the end-game plan, IMO.
        that’s why, I think the point of Matrix was to make us envisage (and so use the creative force of our consciousness to create reality) that possible future, that is the one desired by “them”. and so, by pretending to fight it, trap us into this scenario – one amongst hundreds of, in the beginning, possible scenarios – as the only one viable, and so, a reality already, “against which we have to fight”.

        the trick of the snake and its hypnotising the victim.

        until we are not chipped, the Matrix scenario is not possible. and being chipped depends on our consent. then, it will be all over.

    • “The Matrix” is a brain-in-a-vat philosophy. It has been around for some time. I have not read the Wikipedia, but I would not be surprised due to existentialism, and thus the rise of Post-Modernism, the brain-in-a-vat philosophy was given space to breath and expand.


  2. “regulation” is a tried and tested way of staying ahead of competitors especially if you control the “regulation”

  3. haha dumbos confound Elon lol
