Bill Gates again expresses concerns related to artificial intelligence

Bill Gates has concerns related to artificial intelligence

There is a popular debate among tech industry executives about artificial intelligence and whether it could one day pose a threat to humans.




However, there is potential that as technologies become smarter, humans could be portrayed as dumber and less skilled than the AI counterparts. Machine learning poses a threat to the human job market, and critics also believe humans could one day be at risk if AI gets out of control.


"I'll be very interested to spend time with people who think they know how we avoid that," Gates recently told Re/Code following a TED talk. "I know Elon [Musk] just gave some money. A guy at Microsoft, Eric Horvitz, gave some money to Stanford. I think there are some serious efforts to look into could you avoid that problem."
