Are you or anyone else you know scared of robots taking over the world? It’s pretty daunting to think about artificial intelligence becoming smarter than their human counterparts, but it’s not likely going down as depicted in Hollywood movies such as Blade Runner and I, Robot. Still, Tesla and SpaceX entrepreneur Elon Musk is warning that we need to put in regulation for AI before “it’s too late.”

At the Governors Association Summer Meeting in Rhode Island last weekend, Musk was the keynote speaker and discussed his companies and new technological advancements with them. When he was approached on the subject of artificial intelligence over 20 minutes into the discussion with Nevada governor Brian Sandoval, he didn’t hold back on his worries about it. He believes that regulation “needs to be proactive...instead of reactive.”
