Disagreeing with Elon Musk, Zuckerberg said, “I think that AI is going to unlock a huge amount of positive things, whether that’s helping to identify and cure diseases, to help cars drive more safely, to help keep our communities safe. He further said, “I think that he’s making a point that I really agree with on, which is that look: Over the long term if we can get to a state where we have good self-driving cars — you know one of the leading causes of people dying is car accidents — if we can get to a state where we have good self-driving cars, then that is going to potentially massively reduce one of the leading causes of death, and is a very important humanitarian thing that needs to be done”.
Referring AI, Zuckerberg said, “We need to make sure that we don’t get too negative on this stuff,” he said referring to AI technology. “Because it’s too easy for people to point to an individual failure of technology and try to use that as an argument to slow down progress.”
On the other hand, in an interview took place in last March, Elon Musk said that AI is “far more dangerous than nukes”.
