(EXPRESS) -- BILLIONAIRE Elon Musk has claimed that people should be more worried about Artificial Intelligence (AI) than the threat posed by North Korea.
The SpaceX founder, who is hoping to become the first man to establish a human colony on Mars, said humans should be “vastly” more concerned about robots taking over the world.
Mr Musk’s tweets come after Trump and Kim Jong-un continue to ratchet up fears of World War 3 with their foreboding rhetoric. The US President has threatened to unleash “fire and fury” upon Pyongyang, while the hermit kingdom has promised to strike the US-territory of Guam by mid-August.
