This is a tremendously long read over a Vanity Fair, which I would not call a usual source of a good science read, but today it is. While the focus of this article is that Elon Musk is hedging his bets to colonize space in order to get away from rouge AI killing us all here on Earth, it casts a very wide net on talking about anyone and anybody when it comes to opinions on AI and how it is going to kill us all. Just when you thought your Monday was looking up, we find out that we will not even get to see the Terminator in action when we are taken out. I am voting for the hot Terminator please.
"If you want a picture of A.I. gone wrong, don’t imagine marching humanoid robots with glowing red eyes. Imagine tiny invisible synthetic bacteria made of diamond, with tiny onboard computers, hiding inside your bloodstream and everyone else’s. And then, simultaneously, they release one microgram of botulinum toxin. Everyone just falls over dead.
