It's been a few weeks since business moguls Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg expressed their opposing views about Artificial Intelligence. The issues about the risks of A.I for humans hasn't died yet and Musk recently issued a warning with regards to the dangers of A.I.

According to the OpenAI, Tesla and SpaceX founder believes artificial intelligence presents "vastly more risk" compared to the nuclear threat posed by North Korea. The businessman used his Twitter account to express his concern after the apparent success of A.I development against professional "DOTA 2" players in the popular multiplayer online game.

"If you're not concerned about AI safety, you should be. Vastly more risk than North Korea," Musk said in a Tweet.

A.I riskier than nuclear power?

Although Musk supports the development of artificial intelligence, this is not the first time he expressed his concerns over the technology. Recent reports also said even Facebook shut down their robots when they started using a language only they could understand. In 2014, the SpaceX founder was quoted saying that artificial intelligence is the "biggest existential threat" to mankind. This incident increased the concerns about the technology. Musk took this opportunity to instigate the regulation of A.I.

A.I, just like cars, planes, drugs, and food should also be regulated, said Musk.

Regulating it will provide a safety net to the public. He even appealed to U.S. governors, during an annual national meeting held in Providence, Rhode Island, to regulate the use of A.I.

OpenAI 'Dota 2'

In order to monitor and help develop the technology, Musk founded OpenAI. The company recently completed the testing of its multiplayer online battle arena (Moba) game called "Dota 2." In a surprising twist, the technology won against the world's best human players.

They played for a $24.8 m prize fund, according to The Guardian.

During the testing, the A.I showcased its capability to predict the next move of human players. The technology is smart enough to improvise and change tactics, understanding that speed does not necessarily mean success, or in this case victory. In this manner, the technology emerged triumphant over human players.

Musk is the co-chair of the non-profit organization founded in 2015. When it debuted, the company said that it is like an "AI gym" offering an environment for A.I developers to train their programs. But most importantly, it was opened to help develop computers and robotics for the benefit of human beings.

However, the company is not the first to test computers' ability against human beings. Google's Deepmind AI program also managed to defeat the world's best board game player. They are currently looking into testing the computer's capability against the best "StarCraft II" player.
