Check the video, at around 50 minutes in, a viewer asks Zuckerberg, “I watched a recent interview with Elon Musk and his largest fear for the future was AI. What are your thoughts on AI and how it could affect the world?”
Zuckerberg responds: “I have pretty strong opinions on this … I think you can build things and the world gets better, and with AI especially, I’m really optimistic. I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios are — I just, I don’t understand it. It’s really negative and in some ways I think it is pretty irresponsible.”
Elon Musk was quick to react as he Tweeted, Zuckerberg’s knowledge on AI is limited.
I’ve talked to Mark about this. His understanding of the subject is limited.

Heart of the matter-
A couple of weeks ago, Elon Musk shared his concern about striving artificial intelligence. He famously compared work on AI to “summoning the demon,” and has warned time and time again that the technology poses an existential risk to humanity. At a gathering of US governors this weekend, he repeated these sentiments, but also stressed something he says is even more important: that governments need to start regulating AI now.
“I have exposure to the very cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned about it,” Musk told attendees at the National Governors Association summer meeting on Saturday. “I keep sounding the alarm bell, but until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react, because it seems so ethereal.” (Source- The Verge/ Image- Esquire)
