Elon Musk has grim prediction that AI (not North Korea) will be cause of WWIII

Monday September 4, 2017. 08:20 PM , from BoingBoing
Elon Musk started off his Labor Day in dark mood. In the wee hours of the morning he tweeted a link to an article by The Verge, 'Putin Says the Nation That Leads in AI 'Will Be the Ruler of the World.'' He then had a run of depressing tweets, saying that World War III would not be caused by North Korea - in fact he thinks North Korea 'should be low on our list of concerns for civilizational existential risk.' Instead, AI – and not a leader of any country – will most likely pull the trigger.

Here are his tweets, but you may want to start your BBQ and guzzle your beer before reading further.

China, Russia, soon all countries w strong computer science. Competition for AI superiority at national level most likely cause of WW3 imo.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 4, 2017

May be initiated not by the country leaders, but one of the AI's, if it decides that a prepemptive strike is most probable path to victory— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 4, 2017

NK launching a nuclear missile would be suicide for their leadership, as SK, US and China wd invade and end the regime immediately— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 4, 2017

Should be low on our list of concerns for civilizational existential risk. NK has no entangling alliances that wd polarize world into war.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 4, 2017

Govts don't need to follow normal laws. They will obtain AI developed by companies at gunpoint, if necessary.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 4, 2017

Finally someone calls him out on his dark mood, and he admits it's not a good way to start the day.

Sorry about that. You're right. I was depressing myself too:(— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 4, 2017
