Billionaire and Tech Guru, Elon Musk spent the weekend tweeting about how the battle for supremacy in Artificial Intelligence (AI) can lead to World War III.
According to him, ‘competition for AI superiority at national level most likely cause of WW3’.
His prediction was in response to a recent comment from Russian President Vladimir Putin who said, ‘Artificial intelligence is the future not only of Russia but of all of mankind. Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world’.
At the moment, the United States, China and India are the three countries leading the AI race, according to one top tech industry executive.
