Elon Musk says Mark Zuckerberg's understanding of AI is 'limited'

During the stream, the Facebook founder also said "I have strong opinions about it (AI)".

"People who are arguing for slowing down the process of building AI, I just find that really questionable".

"My goal was to learn about the state of artificial intelligence", Zuckerberg said at the time, "where we're further along than people realize and where we're still a long ways off". Then, might I add how Zuckerberg is taking pride in Facebook's AI Research team's win of the best paper award at the top computer vision conference in his post.

There's a storm brewing in Silicon Valley and the belligerents this time are two of its biggest billionaires - Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.

Fear that machines could become so intelligent that they might rise up and overthrow humanity is a common theme in science fiction.

Musk responded back on Twitter on Tuesday accusing Zuckerberg to be out of his element.

Musk, the CEO of electric auto company Tesla and the man behind Space X, is also the backer of hyperloop systems - created to move pods at high speeds through vacuum-sealed tubes.

In Dec. 2016, Musk tweeted about horrific Los Angeles traffic, saying he's going to "build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging".

Musk told a gathering of US governors this month that the potential dangers are not so imaginary, and that they should move to regulate AI.

He also claimed AI "is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilisation".

"AI is a rare case where we need to be proactive in regulation instead of reactive because if we're reactive in AI regulation it's too late", he said at a meeting of the National Governors' Association earlier this month. "But until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don't know how to react because it seems so ethereal".

Such a "Neuralink" would have the potential to level the playing field a bit by enabling people to directly access processing power and perhaps even download memories for storage.

Zuckerberg said he was optimistic about the technology, and that people shouldn't call for a slowdown in progress with artificial intelligence.
