Elon Musk recently reiterated his warnings about the dangers faced by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Speaking at the South by South West (SXSW) festival in Austin Texas, he reaffirmed his belief that the only way humanity can possibly survive is by making the bold move of colonising Mars. He explained that this was due to the impending danger of the next world war, believing that the consequent destruction would not be resulting from nuclear weapons, but AI.
