Elon Musk Warns of Rapid AI Improvement and Talks Mars Trips and Neuralink – NextBigFuture.com


Elon Musk talked about the capabilities of AI. The examples he cites were AI putting words in your mouth, AlphaGo beating the top 50 human players at the same time, dealing with radiation on trips to Mars and the Brain to computer Neuralink.

Elon says the degrees of freedom to which Artificial Intelligence is able to apply themselves is increasing by ten orders of magnitude a year. It is not clear to me exactly what Elon means with this statement of improvement. He talks about a double exponential improvement. Exponential increase in hardware capability and an exponential increase in software talent that is going into AI.

A lot of the hardware used for AI is often not optimized for AI. A GPU is order of magnitude better than CPU for AI. New neural net optimized chips are an order of magnitude better than GPUs. There are many neural net optimized chips coming out soon.

AI puts words in your mouth…
