Elon Musk's relationship with Google cofounder Larry Page is complicated, to say the least.
On the one hand, the two influential tech CEOs are close friends and business associates; on the other hand, Musk is genuinely worried that Page might just lead to the destruction of humanity as we know it.
"I'm really worried about this," Musk is quoted as saying in Elon Musk, a new authorized biography of the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX.
"This," according to the book, refers to the possibility that Page would develop artificially-intelligent robots that could turn evil and have the ability to annihilate the human race.
Page may be well-meaning, but as Musk says, "He could produce something evil by accident."
Musk told an interviewer that he believes "something seriously dangerous" may come about from AI in the next 5-10 years. "Please note that I am normally super pro technology and have never raised this issue until recent months. This is not a case of crying wolf about something I don't understand."
By the pricking of my thumb...
Something Evil this way comes.
I don't see decepticons killing us any time soon-the biggest threat that automatons pose at this point is to the economy because they are replacing humans.

By the 2040s, non-biological intelligence will be a billion times more capable than biological intelligence (a.k.a. us). Nanotech foglets will be able to make food out of thin air and create any object in physical world at a whim.
By 2045, we will multiply our intelligence a billionfold by linking wirelessly from our neocortex to a synthetic neocortex in the cloud.

I don't know...
I'm not really impressed with technology anymore.
I hear about these AMAZING breakthroughs (I have science and tech RSS news feeds), and never hear anything of them ever again. It's like someone makes a groundbreaking technology or discovery and it just disappears.

What really bothers me is that if Google creates AI, and it decides to turn on humanity for whatever reason - we would be brought down by something called "Google." Not Skynet or Gravemind or something cool sounding.... but Google.
It's hard to take you seriously when you earnestly believe that we only use 10% of our brains. You watch too many Hollywood movies. Humans use 100% of their brain. Neuroscience has confirmed this.

We do still not know everything about our own brain. What we know is that we are using about 10 to 15% of our full brain capacity. There has also been a lot of spiritual tests with the human mind. One thing that has come to light here is that among people who are able to be telepathic to a certain degree is the fact that the human thought is immediate and that telepathy is a transfere that are going in another level than our known universe. This fact ( if it is a proper fact???) in it self determents that our thinking process does not go on electrical light speed in all cases but much faster than light speed. So how are those robot brains work did you say??? Digital speed cannot go beyond light speed can it???
So even though our mind may have been measured slower in clock speed it may not follow the clock as we first thought!!!
