Elon Musk: a Machine Tasked with Getting Rid of Spam Could End Humanity

Prophecy Sign: The "Image of the Beast"

There have been many ideas over the years as to just what the image of the Beast may be.  As technology progresses, new ideas formulate.  Case in point is the idea of an artificial super-intelligence global brain that might even seek to destroy certain segments of human life that do not conform to the collective.  Does that not sound like something straight out of bible prophecy?

The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. Revelation 13:15 NIV

Elon Musk: a Machine Tasked with Getting Rid of Spam Could End Humanity
Tesla and SpaceX C.E.O. Elon Musk said he was worried that people didn’t understand how fast artificial intelligence was progressing, and expressed his concern that, in a worst-case scenario, a “super-intelligent” machine might decide to destroy human life. Musk was speaking to Walter Isaacson, the president and C.E.O. of the Aspen Institute, on stage at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit in San Francisco. Musk, uncharacteristically wearing a suit, detailed his fears after teasing the announcement of Tesla’s secretive project called “the D.”  “I don’t think anyone realizes how quickly artificial intelligence is advancing. Particularly if [the machine is] involved in recursive self-improvement . . . and its utility function is something that’s detrimental to humanity, then it will have a very bad effect,” said Musk.  “If its [function] is just something like getting rid of e-mail spam and it determines the best way of getting rid of spam is getting rid of humans . . . ” Musk trailed off, as the crowd laughed.

Why 'Frankenstein' Robots Could Be the Future of Artificial Intelligence
Milford’s latest project blends the navigational ability of a rat with the vision of a human. He’s dubbed this a “Frankenstein” approach to robotics in the media, and he believes that such patchwork techniques are not only promising, but practical ways forward to developing artificial intelligence.
