And if this happens, the risk is humans will become more AI than human – a bold claims Mr Musk agreed with.
Mr Fridman said: “Humans have been gradually merging with AI for 20+ years.
“At some point in this century, as a collective intelligence system, we will become more AI than human, and we won’t notice.”
The SpaceX chief, who has appeared on Mr Fridman’s podcast before, replied with a simple: “Yup.”
Mr Musk addressed his concerns surrounding AI in a 2018 interview with Kara Swisher, where he argued regulation and research is ultimately needed to understand what scientists and developers are dealing with.
