AI Will Overtake Humans And Turn Us Into House Pets In The Next 5 Years, Elon Musk Said

Elon Musk said humanity is on its way to a future where AI is more intelligent than humans and that reality is just five years from now

Elon Musk recently warned that AI would overtake humans in the next five years.

His prediction is in line with a previous warning of a technological singularity saying that this future would arrive when human intelligence is overshadowed by that of machines.

According to Ray Kurzweil, a well-known futurist, this tipping point will happen in 2045 with great advancement in computers, AI, and robotics.

Elon Musk, the CEO and founder of SpaceX and Tesla said in an interview that AI could overtake us in 2025.

He also took part in founding OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research lab, in 2015, and over the years, he has been continuously warning the public of the threat posed by AI. However, Musk thinks humans have failed to recognize the true scale of the issue.

He said his warning was ignored by some very smart people who think there is no way a machine could be as smart as they are, which is very far from the truth.

Musk said humanity is on its way to a future where AI is more intelligent than humans and that is just five years from now. However, it doesn’t mean humans’ lives would turn into hell, it only meant lives would feel weird and unstable.

Back in 2016, Elon Musk said we might be treated like house pets if humans couldn’t connect their brains to computers. After that, he announced a plan to launch a brain chip allowing humans to do so.

Musk said the chip, developed by Neurallink, could help humans compete with AI, control their moods, cure some brain diseases, and even listen to music.

Both Ray Kurzweil and Elon Musk are well-known AI researchers who support guidelines for the development of advanced artificial intelligence.

In 2017, FLI (Future of Life Institute) published an open letter outlining some principles they thought were necessary to prevent AIs from going out of control and a future where lethal autonomous weapons are rampant.
