As two of the world’s most well-known business leaders lock horns on the topic of AI, the technology continues to evolve at a staggeringly unabated pace.
Yesterday, Google’s DeepMind announced it had created an AI with ‘imagination’, making further advancements towards replicating the complex human functionalities which make us so individual.
Over the years, advancements in technology have always caused concern, outcry and resistance. The prospect of change and fear of the unknown toy with people’s emotions, employment status and egos. AI is no different.
Who's right? Who's to know. In 50 years’ time we’ll either be looking back at Musk and Zuckerberg’s passive aggressive exchange of words from a post-apocalyptic world that's been savaged by robots, or one where we're reaping the many rewards that AI advancements have enabled.
Fear or fortune? Team Musk or Team Zuckerberg? Only time will tell.
Google's DeepMind is developing an AI capable of 'imagination', enabling machines to see the consequences of their actions before they make them.
