Elon Musk predicted the emergence of a ruthless AI dictator

Imagine the most vile, the most evil, cynical and treacherous world leader. Now imagine that this person is not a person but a network of millions of computers around the world. And that digital dictator has instant access to even the most insignificant of documented information about each person living or ever lived on Earth. And he can make millions of calculations in a split second, control the world economy, all armed computerized system and, worst of all, possesses immortality in one form or another.

The Advent of incredible digital dictator, according to the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon musk, is one of the darkest possible scenarios for the future of humanity, if the development of artificial intelligence will continue without serious supervision by regulatory authorities.

"it is clear that we are moving rapidly to the emergence of digital superintelligence that will surpass any man" — said Elon Musk in a new documentary "Do You Trust This Computer?" ("You trust this computer?") Director Chris Paine, also previously directed the documentary "Who Killed The Electric Car?" ("Who killed the electric car?").

"If one company or small group of people can create digital godlike superintelligence – she conquers the world".

Human history contains many examples of individuals trying to take over the world at the time. Alexander the great, Charlemagne, Napoleon, Hitler — are just some of the names on this list. However, according to Mask, the authoritarian artificial intelligence will have a terrible advantage over all these people.

"Everyone, even the most vicious and heinous dictators had one thing in common – they were mortal. However, AI does not exist such thing as death. He can exist forever. From such evil people have nowhere to hide", — said Musk.

According to the same Mask, this hypothetical AI dictator will not even have to be truly evil to be a danger to all mankind.

"If AI is a particular challenge, and it so happened that humanity will stand in the way of solving this problem, then the AI just destroy it for granted. Without any hesitation, and moral agony. It's like building a road, which happened to be the anthill. We do not hate ants, we just build the road. So goodbye ant" — added Musk.
