AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology is on the rise, but is it a threat? Should people be worried? Honestly, people need to be aware of what is going on with AI and should be somewhat worried. Now, we are not in a Terminator or War Games kind of situation. However, it wouldn’t be surprising if AI could be used to spy on someone’s cell phone.
Here’s what you need to know about the AI trending topic.
Zuckerberg vs. Musk
Facebook has made it publicly known they are working on AI technology. However, among the technology community, there are debates about the development of AI. Two parties that have been publicly debating about this topic: Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk.
These two technological leaders have two very different views on AI. Elon Musk previously stated that “AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization.” On the other side, Zuckerberg believes that AI will actually benefit and further our society into the future.
The debate on AI between these leaders has been going back and forth for a while now. Musk fired back at Zuckerberg with the recent tweet below:
I’ve talked to Mark about this. His understanding of the subject is limited.

Facebook Shuts Down AI System
Recently, it was made public that Facebook had to shut down one of its AI systems. Why did they shut it down? Because the AI system created its own language! The AI system went off-script and created a language only the chatbots could understand. After realizing this, developers immediately took the system offline.
Clearly, the AI system had other plans when it decided to stop using English to communicate. Scary right? Could this be a look into the future of AI? If so, is the advancement of AI really worth it?
The Future of AI: Could It Be Used To Spy on Someone’s Cell Phone?
The future of AI is unclear. What we do know is that technology is advancing at an alarming rate from self-driving cars to cell phone spy software to AI. It has become easier and easier to view and receive someone’s information. It is entirely possible that advanced AI technology could be used to spy on someone’s cell phone. So, what should people do? Just make sure you are doing what you can to protect your electronic devices and are staying informed about the latest tech topics.
As said earlier, there are two sides to the AI debate: One who says it will help human civilization and the other saying it will end it.
