SCRIPT

Tesla boss and CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk, named artificial intelligence (AI) as the biggest existential threat to humanity, while speaking to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) students on Friday.

Musk likened AI to an out of control "demon" from a horror movie, saying "you know all those stories where there's the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, and he's like yeah he's sure he can control the demon. Didn't work out."

Musk also discussed plans for his company SpaceX to create a human colony on Mars, stating his wish to make humans into a "multiplanetary species".

It's pretty ominous on how Musk flatly says this with no hesitation, especially from a man of his stature.  Look on how our "smart" phones have quickly dominated our lives.  If smartphones are smart, then does that mean we are dumb?  From my assessment we are becoming the latter.  Always ask questions, be inquisitive.

the developpement of mechanical weapons have made a humanity desaster, AI could be very useful if used for human and earth comfort, but bad people will always exist to make it a necessity to make sure this futuristique power, could never be used against humans and earth.

Perpetual ignorance is the back bone of religion. I can't say a big enough F U to this ass hole.

If you guys want to know what Elon is talking about regarding "AI" and "The Demon" read my free novel "Sally Captivity" off my website.  Chapters 8 and 9.  You'll have your answer.

AI/Robot's do not have desire or motive unless programmed otherwise.

Stupidest comment Elon Musk has ever made.

A super intelligent being would not want to rid the world of humans like in terminator  because conquest is a human attribute and if they put us in a Matrix it would probably be because we are harmful to our selves and would blow our selves up.

Stop the AI phobia…

Oh wake up world …..the current crop of spineless leaders are scared shitless someone is going to figure out that islam has to be deat with Just like the nazi were.. and havent a clue how to do it…. all becauae muslims cant get a grip on being civilized human beings.

Like I said… Think of the most vile perverse things and islam sanctions it to encourage their most psycho VICTIMS to carry out their leaders wishes and whims….albeit they are usually private affairs..cannablism, pedophillia, corpse sex, animal sex, sadism, sodomy, you name it…look at todays news..sex with dogs again and a father stoning his daughter for imaginary things..itan hanging a woman for esentially not getting raped…the hideous headlines that dont make it to mainstream pile miles high each day. Look at what we can find out…the stories are like cock roaches..where theres one theres a 1001 more you dont see.

Corporate MIND CONTROL is childs play next to the pagan brainwashing techniques still used by islam…developed and refined even before jewish history started…still in full use today…obviously…but updated with local popular religions and rebranded to islam. They still use the same rituals and idols and even built new temples at the old sites….its the same old thing.

The victims are reduced to a state where unable to think for themselves by making thrm continually repeat their brainwashing over and over and subjecting them to ohysocal and mental torture if they do not do it correctly..doing this removes the indivisuals sense of self and ability to think….empathy has been totally destroyed as well as logic and reason…and the victims are reduced to animal instincts if confronted by anything other than what their handlers tell them..ya know..like a rabbit flight or fight. The victims of this ancient pagan rituals are kept ignorant and the world NEEDS TO STOP THE ABUSE AND HELP THESE VICTIMS.

The world had a wake up call but ignored these vile destructive practices….let them believe in a fake wanna be god and worship all the pagan rocks and vatican pansy men they want but the brainwashing techniques should be banned and severly punished if used. Talk about HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS. ..it is even openly done!!. These walking zombies for a liar wanna be god should be helped if possible and put down like the rabid pigs they are if not.
