A war of words betweenElon MuskandMark Zuckerbergisquickly intensifying over the potential effects ofartificial intelligence.

It all started when Zuckerberg broadcast a live Q& A session on Facebook. The business magnate answered questions from some of his more than 90 million adherents, including a few about artificial intelligence.

I watched a recent interview withElon Muskand his largest fear for future was AI,one fan commented around the 10-minute mark,What are your thoughts on AI and how it could affect"the worlds"?

Zuckerberg answered with his characteristically positive outlook.I have pretty strong rulings on this.I am optimistic,Zuckerberg said.I think you can build things and the world gets better.But with A.I.specially,I is certainly optimistic.And I imagine people who are naysayers and to continue efforts to drum up these doomsday scenarios,I only,I dont understand it.Its actually negative and in some ways.I actually think it is pretty irresponsible.

While we cant tell for sure that Zuckerberg was speaking immediately about Musk,we wouldn't be surprised if he was. The SpaceX CEO has not shied away from discussing the potential risks of AI. Just last month, Musk told U.S. political leaders that AI poses an" existential threat" to humankind.


I retain sounding the alarm bell, but until people realize robots going down the street killing people, they dont know how to react, because it seems so ethereal ," Musk said.


In 2015, Musk and Y Combinator CEO Sam Altman founded OpenAI, a nonprofit research company whose main objective is to work for a safer AI. In a video interview featuring the two CEOs, Musk mentioned AI is the single biggest item in the near word to affect humanity.


" It's important that we have the advent of AI in a good way," Musk mentioned."That is something that,if you could look at a crystal ball and recognize the future,you are willing to that outcome.Because it is something that could go wrong,so we really need to make sure it goes right."

I've talked to Mark about this. His understanding of the subject is limited.

This isn't the first time Musk hit out on Zuckerberg's knowledge of AI.He had some choice words when asked about the "Jarvis" AI Zuckerberg generated," I wouldnt call it AI to have your household parts automated. Its truly not AI to turn the illuminates on, determined the temperature.

This could be the start of anepic feud. Grab your popcorn.
