AI could 'disarm humanity' and force world peace on us, says Elon Musk


AI will disarm humanity and force world peace on us all, according to Twitter CEO Elon Musk.

Speaking in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Musk said he anticipates AI to become a ‘superintelligence’ and ‘uber nanny’ which will strictly control the freedom of humans and ‘punish’ countries who decide to invade other territories.

Musk said: “One way to achieve world peace is to take all the weapons away from the humans so they can no longer use them.

He continued: “I don’t think the AI is going to try to destroy all Humanity but it might put us under strict controls.”

Musk said he thinks the development of artificial digital intelligence is a ‘double edged sword’. While he believes AI will ‘usher in an age of abundance’ and deliver goods and services ‘very inexpensively’, it could also have devastating consequences.
