Superhuman AI – smarter than every human by 2025

2 May 2024

Billionaire tech boss Elon Musk has recently predicted that superhuman artificial intelligence (AI), surpassing human intellect, could become a reality as soon as next year.

If this kind of prediction becomes true, are humans ready to embrace that machines can be smarter than them?

Defining Superhuman AI

With the power of supercomputing that is now leaning on artificial intelligence, Elon Musk believes that superhuman AI can surpass human intelligence next year.

While ‘superhuman’ AI denotes intelligence superior to any individual human at specific tasks, ‘superintelligent’ AI surpasses the combined abilities of all humans across various tasks.

What Musk has forecasted could mean a huge AI development in transit. Of course, it remains questionable since this technology has implications for society.

Musk’s concerns and initiatives

Musk’s concerns about the consequences of superintelligent AI have been evident in his endeavours. Through his AI startup, xAI, he aims to steer AI development in a direction that prioritises safety and ethical considerations.

Despite acknowledging the potential benefits of advanced AI, the tycoon remains vigilant about avoiding a dystopian future akin to scenarios depicted in science fiction.

Since AI will be the biggest name for the next century to come alongside EV growth, it can leave a lasting impact on electricity and transformer supplies in the next two years.
