Elon Musk: AI Will Cause World War III
Again, Elon Musk has issued a warning about the dangers that can hide a misuse of Artificial Intelligence as well as the lack of control of it. This time it has gone beyond its previous warnings and has ensured that it will be responsible for triggering the Third World War.
The founder of SpaceX and Tesla has used his profile on the social network Twitter to make these reflections high and respond to the words spoken a few hours earlier by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
During a lecture to Russian students on the occasion of the inauguration of the school year, Putin gave a speech in which it affirmed that the country that leads the investigation in the field of the Artificial Intelligence will be the one that dominates the planet while offering “colossal opportunities”.
Putin has stated that “AI is the future, not only for Russia but for all of the humanity.” It comes with colossal opportunities, but also with threats that are difficult to predict, whoever becomes the leader will become the ruler of the world”.
Statements to which Musk has not been able to pass the opportunity of answer affirming that the Artificial Intelligence will provoke the Third World War. Specifically, refers to that could affect “a pre-emptive strike” that would ensure victory.
China, Russia, soon all countries w strong computer science. Competition for AI superiority at national level most likely cause of WW3 imo.

It does not stay there. He claims that the potential dangers of this technology make AI “more dangerous than North Korea”.
It should be noted that this is not the first time that Musk warns of the negative consequences of Artificial Intelligence. One of the most talked about was the intense debate with Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO, and creator of the social network giant Facebook, through social networks, shaping their different views on this technology.
A few weeks ago, Musk and more than 100 technology experts signed a petition to the UN to ban assassin robots, a concern born of the dangers of using autonomous weapons.
“Once developed, these killer robots will allow the armed conflict to be released on a larger scale than ever before, and at a faster rate than humans can understand,” they said in the document sent to the international body.
