Eric Schmidt: 'Were The Killer Robots To Start, We Would Find A Way To Stop Them'
Tech billionaire Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google, is optimistic that humans will be able to shut down dangerous machines should they start to appear. Speaking last week on an artificial intelligence podcast hosted by MIT research scientist Lex Fridman, Schmidt said that he didn't share the same concerns as people like Elon Musk, MIT professor Max Tegmark, or Nick Bostrom, a Swedish philosopher at Oxford University. "We would unplug Terminator if it showed up," he said. "Were the killer robots to start, we would find a way to stop them."
