I subscribe to Forbes, the business and financial news magazine. Forbes published a story about Ashton Kutcher [American actor, model, investor and producer] who is a man that is sooooo successful that it almost impossible for me to imagine how this could be.
I used to believe, for example, that success in the investing world was mostly a matter of luck. But that is obviously an incorrect assumption on my part regarding Ashton Kutcher. His intellect is responsible for his successes.
Elon Musk on Artificial Intelligence
This morning I read a story about Elon Musk [another super brilliant person] commenting on his thoughts about being concerned about the increasing rate of Artificial Intelligence power.
Musk believes that once AI becomes more intelligent than humans, AI could pose a threat to humans. The main threat being, that AI would begin to treat us the same as we treat our pets.
I'm a dummy
I find that I am unable to grasp what all of this means to me. Years ago, I considered myself a pretty smart guy. It is clear to me, that I no longer am that smart guy. I've been eclipsed by a new generation of much smarter people.
And now comes the generation of Artificial Intelligence. And what will I be to the AI crowd? Their cat?!
