When the man at the forefront of some of the most cutting-edge enterprises in the world warns you about, well, some potentially disastrous technological dangers, you should probably listen, right?
So pay attention to a warning from Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, Paypal and SpaceX. During an interview on CNBC this past week he warned about artificial intelligence—you know, computers thinking for themselves.
"I think there's things that are potentially dangerous out there. ...There's been movies about this, like 'Terminator,'" he said on CNBC's "Closing Bell". "There's some scary outcomes and we should try to make sure the outcomes are good, not bad."
