The billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk predicts that artificial intelligence (AI) will become the “most disruptive force in history” and may eventually replace human labor in all fields.
According to him, artificial intelligence (AI) has the ability to outsmart humans and complete any activity, creating a society in which employment is optional.
Elon Musk Talks About AI at the UK Summit as a Potential “Disruptive Force”
Musk addressed Prime Minister Rishi Sunak at a formal UK government function ,saying:
“AI has the capacity to emerge as the greatest disruptive force in human history.”
In his vision of the future, people would labor just for their own gratification. This is due to the fact that AI might perform any task. Musk continued, saying:
“There will come a time when no job is needed, though it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when that will happen.”
The owner of Tesla, SpaceX, and X (previously known as Twitter), Elon Musk, has issued numerous alerts regarding the possible dangers posed by AI.
He once demanded a halt to the creation of artificial intelligence (AI) more sophisticated than OpenAI’s GPT-4 program, comparing its possible threat to that of nuclear weapons.
AI-Powered Data Gathering
“X says it will share users’ profiles with potential employers and use this data to recommend jobs to users.”
Additionally, the platform plans to train AI and machine learning models using this data.
Although some see these changes as a positive step toward X becoming a “everything app,” privacy activists are concerned. They contend that individuals need to have more say over the uses of their data, particularly when it comes to the advancement of AI.
Musk’s idea of an AI-powered, jobless future raises concerns about the nature of work in general and meaning of life. As AI develops, the discussion about its effects on the economy, society, and individual lives will only get more heated. As Elon Musk pointed out, “One of the challenges in the future will be how do we find meaning in life.”
