Elon Musk gave a simple answer to Facebook’s vice president of artificial intelligence after being asked about his knowledge of technology – “Facebook sucks.”
The brutal response was given to a tweet published by Jérôme Pesenti, who criticized the billionaire’s warnings about the dangers of general artificial intelligence (AGI).
“I think a lot of people in the AI community would agree to say it publicly,” Pesenti wrote on Twitter.
” [Musk] has no idea what he’s talking about when he talks about AI. AGI does not exist and we are far from equaling human intelligence. “
The statements follow a CNBC story, including interviews with AI researchers who judge Musk’s comments on AI “inappropriate.”

Elon Musk gave Facebook vice president of artificial intelligence a simple answer after being asked about his knowledge of technology – “Facebook sucks”
Musk has clearly expressed hatred for Facebook in the past.
In February, the CEO spoke out against the firm, urging users to delete their accounts, calling the site “lame.”
He tweeted the hashtag #DeleteFacebook in response to British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, a voice critic for Facebook.
Baron Cohen tweeted, “We don’t allow one person to control the water for 2.5 billion people. We don’t let 1 person control electricity for 2.5 billion people. Why do we let 1 man control the information seen by 2.5 billion people?
The brutal response was given to a tweet published by Jérôme Pesenti, who criticized the billionaire’s warnings about the dangers of general artificial intelligence (AGI). “I think a lot of people in the AI community would agree to say it publicly,” Pesenti wrote on Twitter.
“Facebook must be regulated by governments, not governed by an emperor! He added, accompanied by a doctored photo of Mark Zuckerberg’s face on a Roman statue.
Musk replied: ‘#DeleteFacebook It’s lame’.
And Twitter conversation with Pesenti suggests that the CEO’s aversion to Facebook has been rekindled.
Musk, although fascinated by AI, has long championed the dangers it poses to the human race.
“We are hopelessly inadequate. We will be far, far overwhelmed in every way. I guarantee it, “said Musk to Alibaba president Jack Ma at the World Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Shanghai, China.
“I think people generally underestimate the capabilities of AI. “
“But it’s going to be much more than that. It will be much smarter than the most intelligent human.
In 2017, Musk gave an even more alarming warning about technology.

“AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization,” he said.
“I’m exposed to the most advanced AI, and I think people should really care. “
However, AI researchers do not appear to be on board the billionaire, calling his comments inappropriate and urging the public to “not take his opinions too seriously,” reported CNBC.
An AI official, who wished to remain anonymous, told CNBC: “He’s a sensationalist, he fluctuates enormously between worrying openly about the risk of falling technology and then hyper the AGI agenda (intelligence general artificial).
“Although his very real achievements are recognized, his cowardly remarks lead the general public to have an unrealistic understanding of the state of maturity of AI. “
Although Musk’s remarks are not favorable to the scientific community, he has put his words into practice by developing a brain chip that could put humans on the same level as AI.

He recently spoke on Joe Rogan’s podcast of his company Neuralink, which is developing brain implants that could become a complete brain interface in just 25 years – enabling “symbiosis” between humans and AI.
This means that all neurons would be connected to an AI extension of yourself.
“You already have a computer extension of yourself and an online extension when someone dies, it’s like an online ghost,” said the tech mogul.
“It would be fair if more of you were in the cloud instead of your body.
