Tesla CEO Elon Musk fears the ‘potential dangerous outcomes’ of artificial intelligence

On Tuesday, Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX, voiced his concerns about the future of artificial intelligence during an interview on CNBC. SpaceX placed number one on the second annual CNBC Disruptor 50 list because the “company designs, manufactures, and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft, with the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets.” Musk surprised his interviewers when he mentioned the “potential dangerous outcomes” of artificial intelligence.

“Elon Musk – listen to this – believes it's feasible a Terminator-like scenario could erupt out of artificial intelligence,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “In an interview with CNBC, Musk says he's an investor in artificial intelligence company called Vicarious because it's not like he's trying to make any money per se, rather he likes to keep an eye on various technological developments like killer robots.”

Below is a partial transcript from the portion of the interview Glenn found most alarming:

BOORSTIN: Now, I have to ask you about a company that you invested in. As you said, you make almost no investments outside of SpaceX and Tesla.

MUSK: Yeah I'm not really an investor.

BOORSTIN: You're not an investor?

MUSK: Right. I don't own any public securities a part from SolarCity and Tesla.

BOORSTIN: That's amazing. But you did just invest in a company called Vicarious. Artificial intelligence. What is this company?

MUSK: Right. I was also an investor in DeepMind before Google acquired it and Vicarious. Mostly I sort of – it's not from the standpoint of actually trying to make any investment return. It's really, I like to just keep an eye on what's going on with artificial intelligence. I think there is potentially a dangerous outcome there and we need to –

EVANS: Dangerous? How so?

MUSK: Potentially, yes. I mean, there have been movies about this, you know, like Terminator.

EVANS: Well yes, but movies are – even if that is the case, what do you do about it? I mean, what dangers do you see that you can actually do something about?

MUSK: I don't know.

BOORSTIN: Well why did you invest in Vicarious? What exactly does vicarious do? What do you see it doing down the line?

MUSK: Well, I mean, vicarious refers to it as recursive cortical networks. Essentially emulating the human brain. And so I think –

BOORSTIN: So you want to make sure that technology is used for good and not Terminator-like evil?

MUSK: Yeah. I mean, I don't think – in the movie Terminator, they didn't create A.I. to – they didn't expect, you know some sort of terminator-like outcome. It is sort of like the Monty Python thing. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. It's just – you know, but you have to be careful. Yeah, you want to make sure that –

EVANS: But here is the irony. I mean, the man who is responsible for some of the most advanced technology in this country is worried about the advances in technology that you are aware of.

“She cuts him off… How do you have a rational conversation with somebody,” Glenn asked. “Elon Musk is no dummy. I mean he may not be right, but he's no dummy. You [need to] listen to people.”

“Wouldn't that be the number one person who should be worried about it,” Stu added. “If that person isn't worried about it, he's not being responsible. That's exactly the person who needs to be thinking about these things.”

Just a few months ago, Glenn sat down with Google executives Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen to discuss some of the more invasive technological advances Google is working on. Glenn found himself frustrated after that interview because they kept discounting the theories of someone like Ray Kurzweil, who is employed by Google. This interview with Musk, in Glenn’s opinion, had a similar tone.

“That's my point with Ray Kurzweil every time. Aren't you concerned about this,” Glenn asked. “I mean that's a fascinating interview. And the way they are dismissing it – these people are… just imbeciles, people who are going to be remembered as morons… Stop dismissing it.”

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
