Elon Musk tells Rishi Sunak AI will put an end to work
BBC News says Tech billionaire Elon Musk has predicted that artificial intelligence will eventually mean that no one will have to work.
He was speaking to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak during an unusual “in conversation” event at the end of this week’s summit on AI.
The 50-minute interview included a prediction by Mr Musk that the tech will make paid work redundant.
He also warned of humanoid robots that “can chase you anywhere”.
The pair talked about how London was a leading hub for the AI industry and how the technology could transform learning.
But the chat took some darker turns too, with Mr Sunak recognising the “anxiety” people have about jobs being replaced, and the pair agreeing on the need for a “referee” to keep an eye on the super-computers of the future.
