Business magnate participated in the meeting on issues of technology and entrepreneurship, the Governor of Nevada Brian Sandoval, who is the Chairman of the National governors Association.
Musk said that one of the functions of the governors of America – to prevent the danger posed by artificial intelligence. According to him, because with AI, many industries became fully Autonomous, this threatens not only the loss of jobs, but security of the country.

“Robots can perform tasks faster and more efficiently than humans, but even more dangerous is that they can start a war, making fake news and faking the account email, distorting the information and manipulating it,” – says Musk.

The businessman noted that heads of States should start with the formation of a regulatory Committee, the first task of which will be to develop a full understanding of the AI. “If your competitor is in a hurry to build the AI, and you do not, it will crush you. But to use such technologies need common rules, this will help to protect everyone,” Musk said.
