Robot Revolt

Artificial intelligence could one day destroy humanity unless we tame it, according to billionaire space entrepreneur Elon Musk.

Taking a deep dive into Musk’s AI concerns, journalist Maureen Dowd relates how he began publicly sounding the alarm in 2014, calling AI “humanity’s biggest existential threat.” But his obsession with saving the planet, Dowd reveals, goes back to reading the sci-fi classic “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” as a teen.

Though some say Musk’s fears of a robot apocalypse are nothing more than science fiction, Musk recently launched the billion-dollar nonprofit OpenAI, which aims to develop safer artificial intelligence.
