Elon Musk has just backed a USD $1 billion venture called OpenAI – a nonprofit based research company which will be dedicated to the advancement of science and ethics of artificial intelligence (AI). OpenAI is also supported by Peter Theil – the cofounder of PayPal. The company’s major goal is to help ensure that the future potential of artificial intelligence is fully utilized to benefit humanity and not endanger it.

On it’s website they said that OpenAI’s goal is “to advance digital intelligence in the way that is most likely to benefit humanity as a whole, unconstrained by a need to generate financial return.” Musk has repeatedly warned about the dangers of artificial intelligence calling them the biggest threat to humanity.


Other famous scientists and technologists have warned about the same too including Stephen Hawking. Hawking told the BBC AI could potentially “re-design itself at an ever increasing rate”, superseding humans by outpacing biological evolution. (BBC.com)

They hope to work against companies with super intelligent systems that may get too much power from such systems and backers of AI have also warned of the potential for governments to use powerful AI to oppress citizens. OpenAI will make use of huge sets of data to build artificially intelligent robots that benefit humanity and not harm us. Should we be afraid of rogue robots? What do you guys think?
