Elon Musk has expressed his belief that there will come a time when AI will be able to do everything, rendering jobs unnecessary. However, Musk acknowledges that this is both a good and bad thing. Musk spoke in an interview with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak at the AI Safety Summit 2023, which is taking place in Buckinghamshire on November 1-2. Musk stated that AI has the potential to become "the most disruptive force in history," and that there will come a time when AI will be smarter than the smartest human being. He also stated that people will only work for personal satisfaction, as AI will be able to do everything. Musk compared this to humans having unlimited wishes, which is both good and bad.

Musk has previously warned about the dangers of AI. He has stated that AI is more dangerous than nuclear weapons and has called for a halt to the development of AI more advanced than OpenAI's GPT-4. However, his opposition to AI has also drawn criticism. Some believe that Musk is exaggerating the capabilities of AI, while others argue that his objections are due to his lack of a strong product.

The rapid development of AI has caused concerns, which is why the AI Safety Summit 2023 has been organized. The conference is aimed at identifying the risks that AI poses and developing appropriate management measures. Technology experts and politicians have warned about the existential threat that AI creates, highlighting the possibility of the world ending due to the emergence of super AI. Despite tensions over technology, the US and China have agreed on many issues surrounding AI, such as safely managing and developing AI, at this conference, according to CNBC.
