Elon Musk’s predictions about robotsis the stuff of nightmares.

Twitter user Alex Medina captioned a promotional video of Boston Dynamics’ Atlas robot doing front flips and jumpings in an obstacle course with the panickedcaption: “We dead.” Musk responded to Medina by basically telling him to buckle in for a lot more terrifying features to these humanoid robotadvancements.

“This is nothing. In a few years, that bot will move so fast you’ll need a strobe light to see it. Sweet dreamings …, ” Musk wrote.


The Atlas robot is marketed as the “world’s more dynamic humanoid, ” but even that impressive advancement might soon be eclipsed by artificial intelligence. The Tesla CEO followed up his creepy commentary with a warning about the future of leaving such technology unchecked.

“Got to regulate AI/ robotics like we do food, drugs, aircraft& vehicles, ” Musk tweeted. “Public hazards require public oversight. Get rid of the FAA[ wouldn’t] stimulate flying safer. They’re there for good reason.”

So Musk is basically backing up every horror movie theory about artificial intelligence and robots ever. And this isn’t the first time the tech mogul has cautioned about these types of advancements. Musk said in September that artificial intelligence will probably be the trigger that ignites a world war.

“China, Russia, soon all countries w strong computer science, ” Musk wrote on Twitter in September. “Competition for AI superiority at national level most likely cause of WW3 imo.”

Well, hopefully Will Smith can protect humanity in the upcoming robot apocalypse.
