He added that “people should be happy” that the business was “a little bit scared” of the potential of AI in an interview with ABC News.
Speaking on the issue of the impact of the AI on jobs, he said, “It is going to eliminate a lot of current jobs, that’s true. We can make much better ones (jobs).The reason to develop AI at all, in terms of impact on our lives and improving our lives and upside, this will be the greatest technology humanity has yet developed.”
