Facebook’s head of AI says Elon Musk ‘has no idea what he is talking about’ – Business Insider India

In a tweet Wednesday morning, Facebook AI head Jerome Pesenti said Musk "has no idea what he is talking about when he talks about AI." Pesenti was reacting to a CNBC story that quoted anonymous AI researchers and CEOs questioning Musk's AI credentials.

Musk is also a self-fashioned AI pundit, regularly warning that the technology will rapidly outsmart humans and could be "potentially more dangerous than nukes."

"I have exposure to the most cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned by it," he said in 2017. "AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization."

Pesenti isn't the only Facebook AI employee to publicly criticize Musk. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg called Musk "irresponsible" in 2017, and Facebook Chief AI Scientist Yann Lecun called him "nuts" in 2018 over his remarks on the danger of AI. Edward Grefenstette, a former DeepMind engineer who now works for Facebook, called Musk an "opportunistic moron" after the Tesla CEO tweeted "FREE AMERICA NOW" last month.

A Tesla spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
