Elon Musk says Mark Zuckerberg’s understanding of AI is ’limited’

It’s a battle of the tech billionaires.

Tesla (TSLA) boss Elon Musk and Facebook (FB, Tech30) founder Mark Zuckerberg are locked in a very public feud over the future of artificial intelligence.

Musk has repeatedly warned about the dangers of artificial intelligence, describing it as a potentially existential threat to the human race.

Zuckerberg has a different view. On Sunday, he responded to a question about Musk’s warnings by saying he was tired of the fear-mongering.

”With AI especially, I’m really optimistic,” Zuckerberg said during a Facebook Live broadcast. ”I think that people who are naysayers and kind of try to drum up these doomsday scenarios — I just, I don’t understand it. I think it’s really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible.”

Musk shot back on Tuesday morning with a tweet saying, ”I’ve talked to Mark about this. His understanding of the subject is limited.”

Musk added that a movie on the subject of AI was ”coming soon,” but didn’t provide details about the film or his involvement.

Musk ignited a global discussion on the perils of AI in 2014. He predicted that humans might be doomed if we make machines that are smarter than us. But he said in a recent interview with the website waitbutwhy.com that his warnings haven’t being heeded.

Musk, who’s already leading space exploration projects and major tunneling initiatives, is now trying to develop AI that he hopes will have a positive impact on humanity. He’s heading up a startup called Neuralink that intends to build devices to connect the human brain with computers.

Zuckerberg is no stranger to AI. He worked last year on developing an artificial intelligence system to help run his life and his home. After about 100 hours of work, he posted a video at the end of 2016 showcasing an AI system called Jarvis, which is voiced by the actor Morgan Freeman.

”My goal was to learn about the state of artificial intelligence,” Zuckerberg said at the time, ”where we’re further along than people realize and where we’re still a long ways off.”

Facebook is also developing augmented reality features for smartphones and virtual reality worlds that can be experienced through the company’s headset, Oculus.

In his Facebook Live broadcast on Sunday, Zuckerberg said that AI could be a force for good because it helps power self-driving cars and diagnose illnesses.

”If you’re arguing against AI, then you’re arguing against safer cars that aren’t going to have accidents. And you’re arguing against being able to better diagnose people when they’re sick. I just don’t see how, in good conscience, some people can do that. I’m just much more optimistic on this, in general, than probably a lot of folks are,” Zuckerberg said.

    The free trial bottle of Reviva was delivered in a few days from ordering and with surprisingly inexpensive shipping. Before putting O’Reilly on the test, our team ran a little bit of our own research before we put O’Reilly on the test and found:

    Bill O’Reilly’s 14 DAY Reviva EXPERIENCE
    DAY 1:

    ”I took one and forgot all about it. Maybe 20-30 minutes later I felt odd. I can only describe it by saying my mind felt calm and still. I was playing a Men’s mind game’ and scored 100% on every answer. It was like that feeling you get when you have just woken up. Light headed so to speak but this was different. I was light headed and spaced out but in the zone at the same time. Can’t explain it – but it was awesome.”
    DAY 5:

    ”I was shocked at the drastic results. Over the course of the next 5 days I found myself bouncing out of bed and felt ready to take on the day – usually I need to snooze 3 times. I felt motivation to get stuff done and often power through..”
    DAY 14:

    ”After 14 days, not only had all my doubts and skepticism absolutely vanished – Thing’s that annoyed me were no longer an issue. I hardly got stressed and when I did, I was able to control my emotions and get back into peak performance and state.”
    My Thoughts on Reviva

    ”Reviva is the real deal. The increase in focus, creativity and overall mental performance was a little bit scary to be honest – I felt like a different person. I didn’t notice any side effects at all either. I need to order a box of these before they are released into stores.” – Bill O’Reilly
