Elon Musk is warning — yet again — about the potential power of artificial intelligence.
"AI will be the best or worst thing ever for humanity," says the billionaire entrepreneur via Twitter on Tuesday.
He also recommends a book on the subject: "Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence" by MIT professor Max Tegmark. Musk says the book is "worth reading."
The book gives insight into a future with artificial intelligence that Musk has been warning the world about.
Musk says that AI poses "vastly more risk than North Korea," according to a comment made in August.
He calls artificial intelligence a "fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization," speaking to a gathering of governors in July.
Nobody likes being regulated, but everything (cars, planes, food, drugs, etc) that's a danger to the public is regulated. AI should be too.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 12, 2017
Musk also supports government regulation of artificial intelligence, saying the government should be "proactive in regulation," not reactive.
