Episode 20: Musk vs. Zuck and the Future of AI

Published: Aug. 1, 2017, 6:25 a.m.


Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have had a bit of a back and forth this past week regarding artificial intelligence. It all at a US National Governors Association meeting earlier this month, he called for regulation of AI to prevent the existential threat that AI poses to mankind. Zuckerberg responded to this latest doomsday prediction with bewilderment and dismissing Musk's comments were "pretty irresponsible." Of course, Musk shot back at Zuckerberg and the internet has been all abuzz about it since.

We cover some of the motivation behind the dispute and try to understand where these apocalyptic visions are coming from. Do they have any merit and should we be concerned as well?
