What happens when two tech bosses argue? Well, there’s never a conclusion to that debate and we saw a similar thing in the case of 2 geniuses Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, and Mark Zuckerberg. Their topic of debate was “Artificial Intelligence”.
Both of them have different thoughts on Artificial Intelligence. While Elon Musk feels that it is a threat to humans, Mark Zuckerberg thinks in the opposite direction.
Elon Musk keeps talking as to how AI will hamper humans and how robots will replace them at jobs; in short, Musk always gives warnings about Artificial Intelligence as he believes it will lead to a dark future.
On Sunday, in a Facebook Live interview, Zuckerberg stated that he is pretty optimistic about Artificial Intelligence. Taking a dig at Musk’s warnings, Zuckerberg said,
“I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios — I just, I don’t understand it. It’s really negative and in some ways, I actually think it is pretty irresponsible. In the next five to 10 years, AI is going to deliver so many improvements in the quality of our lives.”
Now, a Twitter user by the name Darrin Cunningham shared this article about Zuckerberg’s comments and looks as if it didn’t go down well with Musk.
Here’s the article he shared;

And as soon as Elon Musk saw this, he replied to the tweet and here’s what he replied:
I've talked to Mark about this. His understanding of the subject is limited.

This conversation highlights the fact that there are many debates going on in the tech field; even though Musk and Zuckerberg aren’t competitors, they ensure that they give their valuable opinion on an important subject like Artificial Intelligence.
