Quote On Artificial Intelligence By Stephen Hawking
“Success in creating effective AI, could be the biggest event in the history of our civilization. Or the worst. We just don’t know. So we cannot know if we will be infinitely helped by AI, or ignored by it and side-lined, or conceivably destroyed by it. Unless we learn how to prepare for, and avoid, the potential risks, AI could be the worst event in the history of our civilization. It brings dangers, like powerful autonomous weapons, or new ways for the few to oppress the many. It could bring great disruption to our economy.”Stephen Hawking, 2017
Stephen Hawking’s quotes on artificial intelligence are very optimistic. Some of the famous quotes on artificial intelligence came from Hawking in 2014 when the BBC interviewed him. He said artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.

Elon Musk On Artificial Intelligence
I have been banging this AI drum for a decade. We should be concerned about where AI is going. The people I see being the most wrong about AI are the ones who are very smart, because they can not imagine that a computer could be way smarter than them. That’s the flaw in their logic. They are just way dumber than they think they are.Elon Musk, 2020
Musk has been very vocal about artificial intelligence’s capabilities in changing the way we do our day-to-day tasks. Earlier, he had stressed on the fact that AI can be the cause for world war three. In his Tweet, Musk mentioned ‘it [war] begins’ while quoting a news, which noted Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, though on the ruler of the world; the president said the nation that leads in AI would be the ruler of the world.
Mark Zuckerberg’s Quote
Unlike negative quotes on artificial intelligence by others, Zuckerberg does not believe artificial intelligence will be a threat to the world. In his Facebook live, Zuckerberg answered a user who asked about people like Elon Musk’s opinion about artificial intelligence. Here’s what he said:
“I have pretty strong opinions on this. I am optimistic. I think you can build things and the world gets better. But with AI especially, I am really optimistic. And I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios. I just don’t understand it. It’s really negative and in some ways, I actually think it is pretty irresponsible.”Mark Zuckerberg, 2017
Larry Page’s Quote
“Artificial intelligence would be the ultimate version of Google. The ultimate search engine that would understand everything on the web. It would understand exactly what you wanted, and it would give you the right thing. We’re nowhere near doing that now. However, we can get incrementally closer to that, and that is basically what we work on.”Larry Page
Stepped down as the CEO of Alphabet in late 2019, Larry Page has been passionate about integrating artificial intelligence in Google products. This was evident when the search giant announced that the firm is moving from ‘Mobile-first’ to ‘AI-first’.
Sebastian Thrun’s Quote On Artificial Intelligence
“Nobody phrases it this way, but I think that artificial intelligence is almost a humanities discipline. It’s really an attempt to understand human intelligence and human cognition.”Sebastian Thrun
Sebastian Thrun is the co-founder of Udacity and earlier established Google X — the team behind Google self-driving car and Google Glass. He is one of the pioneers of the self-driving technology; Thrun, along with his team, won the Pentagon’s 2005 contest for self-driving vehicles, which was a massive leap in the autonomous vehicle landscape.
