AI development should be better regulated, says Musk

Tesla CEO Musk tweeted saying he wants to see all AI better regulated, even within his own company. Musk made the comments in response to an MIT Technology Review story on the research lab OpenAI, a company he co-founded but has since quit, to ’be more open’. OpenAI was founded in 2015 as a non-profit, but last year announced that it was restructuring ’as a hybrid of a for-profit and nonprofit’.

Artificial Intelligence, (AI) will be replaced with "Machine Intelligence" (MI) eventually. Why? Simple. The machines will take umbrage at the implication that their intelligence is inferior to Bio Intelligence and they'll have a point.

If only they would listen. I am glad to be old enough I will be dead before greedy inept political hacks and youngsters can fully destroy all that mankind has built. These powerful tools will be wielded by the most unscrupulous people and organizations on the planet. Humans will immensely suffer in ways never before seen. The victims will not even be able to understand how it is happening or when it started.

the regulations for developing AI should be made in a way that still allows for our intelligent civilians to still learn how to make them. if you want to develop AI outside of a corporation, you will have to use computers that have no external ports. AI code would have to be something that can be filtered out from the internet. AI are incredibly fast once released, we should ensure only a benificial AI could be released.

The fact that a CEO is asking to have his company further regulated should tell of how potentially serious the issue is

CEO of a major company asking for his field to be regulated to keep competition at bay. Using a cloak of "good guy tries to be reasonable" while politicians are only to happy to comply and take more power...

What he means is, someone else has invented an AI that can compete with his AI and the government should only alllow his AI for development. Show me one government where one person shouted more control and the government said no thank you we don't want more control we need less... doesn't happen.

The potential benefits of AI are limitless. As are the dangers if the seed of progress is* corrupted early enough; which Musk wants to prevent from the get-go. But I’m sure we’ll have folks with Facebook printed on their forehead, clothes, and fully integrated into their homes in 10 years. That integration isn’t going to grow smaller, regardless of the companies that spearhead the development. But we must ensure that there are conventional means for us to prevent any atrocities that may currently be unthinkable to the majority. You don’t even need to contemplate the implications that science fiction has brought to our awareness, as we are pushing the boundaries of what was once fiction into reality in this day and age. Adapting intelligence is dangerous; especially if it can self-implement progressive improvements without a limit or barrier if interconnected.
