During an interview he labeled it as our biggest existential threat. What’s ironic is that he is an investor in technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, but he stated that his investing is based on keeping watch on the technology rather than furthering its development.

He’s worried that such a technology will not be in our best interest, and could become a nightmare for humanity.

Musk is a tech pioneer and has been involved with many successful technology ventures, including PayPal, SpaceX, Zip2, and electric car company Tesla Motors, among others.
