Elon Musk warns of prospect for “an immortal dictator from which we can never escape”

“If one company or small group of people manages to develop godlike digital superintelligence, they could take over the world.” This in a documentary on AI and robotics out today, “Do You Trust This Computer?” Google’s DeepMind is a big step in this direction, Musk says.

The film is very good. It features almost all the players I see quoted in articles where concerns are being expressed about the downsides of AI and robotics, and covers the upside uses well too, especially in medicine.
