Mark Zuckerberg is quite hopeful about the future impact of AI on human civilization. Needs no description, but this was his take on Elon Musk, the Silicon Valley billionaire, who voiced his opinion against the negative impact of AI on human civilization, a few days back.
In a recent Facebook live session from California, while answering the question submitted by a user, Zuckerberg regarded that AI is the reason for which our lives will be much better in future and even the thought about doomsday scenarios are “pretty irresponsible”.
This was obviously his take on the Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, who expressed his fears over the world coming to an end and the reason being AI.
Further, answering the question “What are your thoughts on AI and how it could affect the world?”, he regarded that he is quite optimistic about AI that it will definitely contribute to making the world a good place to stay.
According to him, in the next ten years, AI will be producing only improvements to upgrade the quality of human lives. He gives a prime example where AI is always used for diagnosis of the diseases. Again, the near future might also witness self-driven cars. Accidents being one of the major causes of car accidents can be banned with AI, which is definitely a dramatic improvement.
Technology, as he stated, can be used for both the good and bad ways. So, now it entirely depends on the user and the precautions he should take to use it.
He concluded that he definitely places a question on the individuals arguing for slowing down the process of building AI.

The striking factor remains that even if Zuckerberg vehemently opposes Musk’s idea of proactive regulation around Artificial Intelligence, many other tech hotshots are also in favor of Musk, questioning the ill effects of AI.
For instance, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates regarded that the near future will witness future robots doing quite a significant amount of work, even after this questions about the potentiality of AI in the long run. He placed himself be in the camp who is more concerned about super intelligence, as stated by him in a Reddit question and- answer session.
The machines will definitely do a whole lot of a work, but that won’t be super intelligent. That can turn positive if we manage it after all.
“A few decades after that though, the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don’t understand why some people are not concerned”.
