I, for one, do not fear change nor the imminent advancement of modern technology. Actually a world without good coffee is quite a bit more horrifying an existence. Yet, Tesla and Space X CEO Elon Musk shared at a recent broad discussion at the National Governors Conference his more than a general concern about artificial intelligence. More specifically the regulation while A.I. is yet in BETA try mode is crucial. Sooner rather than later won't quite cut the mustard. Musk's tone Saturday was a disconcerting we're probably already way late in our knowledge of what's already out there and the impact on human ingenuity in transportation and automotive industries. Yes he's right that as A.I. evolves at nanospeed it will outdo us. Will it undo us? THIS is the right question. Regulation means as Musk so distinctively defines it, "Getting the rules right." Preferably before game on. With A.I. that's too late to set parameters then make them retroactive to Day 1. We have to expose ourselves to what's available now. Get to know the science and technology. Hands on nuts and bolts are easy. Ends and outs of their inner workings far more sophisticated. Greatest threat is within A.I.'s grey matter. Code it correctly to acknowledge and yield to its bio-organic master, i.e., manual override by human being, and eliminate any future threat of a bionic slash robotic hashtag hostile takeover. It's not ever typically a hardware issue but always the software, wrinkle in the logic if you will, which proves to be mastermind behind all chaos. As I always like to soapbox, technology is absolutely phenomenal when used for positive advancement. Should it fall prey to greed or unholy lust for power? There has to be an end game. And that is where regulation needs to be a queen. Protecting a king's position wherever he, or in this case it being technology, should land. Sustainable energy empowers preservation. Compels conservation of Earth's natural resources. Her richest being humanity.
