Tesla CEO: Google robots threaten to annihilate human race
by Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) He's a brilliant innovator whose fortunes came about as a result of ahead-of-their-time technological advancements that many said couldn't be done. But Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk is deeply concerned about some of Google's latest technological endeavors, which he believes could eventually wipe out humanity.
In the new biography Elon Musk, by Ashlee Vance, Musk warns that artificially intelligent (AI) robots, which Google has been throwing quite a bit of money at in recent days, have a strong propensity to turn evil. And as the technology becomes more refined, the potential for AI robots to outwit humans inches closer towards reality.
"I'm really worried about this," Musk states in the book. "This," he explains, referring to Google co-founder Larry Page's efforts to develop AI robots for some unknown purpose, "could produce something evil by accident."
According to The New York Times, Google purchased some seven different technology companies in the second half of 2013 that it plans to use in the development of AI robots. The company's Palo Alto office, in fact, features two life-size humanoid robots hanging suspended from the ceiling, a monument to where the company is headed.
"We do have lots of proof points that one can create intelligent things in the world because-- all of us around," stated Page at a recent KV CEO Summit. "Therefore, you should presume that someday, we will be able to make machines that can reason, think and do things better than we can."
Logistics giant Amazon has already begun pioneering this concept with its pilotless drone concept, known as Amazon Prime Air, which the company says will eventually have the capacity to deliver packages to customers in 30 minutes or less using "small unmanned aerial vehicles."
US government already promoting Google's "Atlas" robot as future of AI technology The Pentagon earlier this year also unveiled a Google humanoid robot known as "Atlas" that's capable of moving its wrists and opening doors without having to move its entire arms. The machine, which stands tall at six feet, two inches, can operate without power cords and is capable of walking, climbing stairs and using various tools.
You can see the "Atlas" robot in action here:
It's the type of doomsday scenario depicted in Arnold Schwarzenegger's famous Terminator films, except now such robots are becoming a reality. As you'll notice, Google's Atlas robot actually looks eerily similar to the T-800 Terminator robot from the Terminator movies -- coincidence?
Mark Dice wrote all about AI robots in his 2005 book The Resistance Manifesto which predicted, among other things, that AI robots would eventually take over the world and destroy humanity. Dice was mocked for writing this 10 years ago, but what he predicted now appears to be coming true.
Our own Mike Adams also warned about the emergence of human-killing AI robots back in 2012. Artificial intelligence, Adams forewarned, threatens the survival of the human race in that it can be coupled with killer drone hardware to target individuals without a human operator. One solution, he says, is to promote a universal ethic that values human life.
"Develop and TEACH a scientific creed of serving humanity, protecting life and operating with ethics," Adams suggested as a solution for stopping this "dangerous science" before it kills us all. "Require all scientists to sign and swear an allegiance to the creed."
The Google Android platform, as well as Apple's Siri functionality, are both AI technology prototypes as well. Apple's Siri, it turns out, was originally hatched as a "human archetype" for Apple smartphones that's capable of learning and obeying commands through voice activation.
