“I am really quite close, I am very close, to the cutting edge in AI and it scares the hell out of me. It’s capable of vastly more than almost anyone knows and the rate of improvement is exponential.

“So the rate of improvement is really dramatic. We have to figure out some way to ensure that the advent of digital super intelligence is one which is symbiotic with humanity. I think that is the single biggest existential crisis that we face and the most pressing one.

“And mark my words, AI is far more dangerous than nukes... So why do we have no regulatory oversight? This is insane.”

Questions

1. Do you agree with Musk that AI has the potential to evolve into a threat more dangerous to humanity than nuclear weapons?

2. Musk has called for regulatory oversight of artificial intelligence. Do you think this is a good idea — or even possible?

3. Are you worried by the number of surveillance cameras in operation today? Are we sleepwalking into becoming a “surveillance state”?
