The Future We Want With Artificial Intelligence- Elon Musk

The percentage of intelligence that is not human is increasing and eventually we will represent a very small percentage of intelligence. I tried to convince people to slow down, slow down AI, to regulate AI because it was futile, I tried for years. Usually there will be some things, a new technology that will cause damage or death, there will be an outcry, there will be investigation, years will pass, there will be an insight committee, there will be rule making then there will be oversight eventually regulations. This all takes many years. Because its the normal cause of things. The time frame is not relevant for AI, it can’t take 10 years from the point which is dangerous, it’s too late. One thing is for sure we will not control it.

Your phone is already an extension of you. You are already a cyborg. If that phone is an extension of yourself, it’s just that the data rate or the communication between you and the cybernetic extension of yourself that is your phone and computer is very slow. And that is like a tiny scroll of information flow between your biological self and your digital self. It will be at some point indistinguishable from reality. If you see any form of improvement at all, then games will be indistinguishable from reality. All civilization will end. The universe as we know it will transform into a fine mist of cold nothingness eventually and the future will pay for it. It is just not paid for now. I don’t think you will necessary want to be me, it is very hard to turn it off it’s like a never ending explosion. I think when I was 5 or 6 I thought I was insane, it was just strange.

I guess goodbye then. You really love that, really give you joy then so rare. I wish there were more things, that’s what we are tying to do. Just make things everybody loves . Like what are the set of things that could be done to make the future better. A future where we are a space bearing civilization and out there among the stars, this is very exciting. This makes me look forward to the future, this makes me want that future. You know there need to be things that make you look forward to waking up in the morning look forward to the day, look forward to the future. If we knew we will never be a space bearing civilization and forever confined to earth, it will never be a good future it will be very sad. Therefore if there are two futures and one future is we are out there among the stars and the things we read about and see in science fiction movies, the good one are true where these star ships and where we should go and see what other planets are like.

We are a multi-planet species where the scope and scale of consciousness is expanded across many civilizations and planets and many star systems, this is a great future. This is a wonderful thing and that is what we should strive for. I think people should be nicer to each other, give more credit to others and don’t assume they are mean at all. It’s easy to dehumanize people, you are usually wrong about it. People are nicer than you think.
