Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has warned that AI is more dangerous than the threat posed by dictator Kim Jong-un’s regime in North Korea.

Mr Musk, chief executive of Tesla and SpaceX, took to Twitter to say: “If you’re not concerned about AI safety, you should be. Vastly more risk than North Korea.”

He posted the comment along with an image of the anti-gambling addiction poster with the slogan: “In the end the machines will win.”

Mr Musk added: “Nobody likes being regulated, but everything (cars, planes, food, drugs, etc) that’s a danger to the public is regulated. AI should be too.”

The warning came after a week of escalating tensions between the US and North Korea, with Mr Jong-un threatening to launch nuclear missiles at the Pacific island of Guam.

US president Donald Trump responded that he was “locked and loaded”, hinting that he was in favour of a military solution to the diplomatic war of words.

Mr Musk has warned in the past that AI should be better regulated since it poses an “existential threat” to human civilisation.

He has also compared developers creating AI to people summoning demons they cannot control.
