Ahead of the consortium of artificial intelligence enthusiasts coming together for 2019 World Artificial Intelligence Conference in Shanghai, China, founder of Alibaba Group, Jack Ma and founder of Tesla Elon Musk had an interesting debate on computers and artificial intelligence.
While Musk emphasised that the computers are getting smarter than humans, Ma said that a computer has never spawned a human being, or even a mosquito. “Computers may be clever, but human beings are much smarter. We invented the computer— I’ve never seen a computer invent a human being.”
While Musk and Ma put forward their points, there’s no doubt that the discourse and debate over the benefits and pitfalls of AI is far from over!
