© Reuters. Vitalik Buterin Says 'Unfriendly' AI Bigger Threat Than WW3: 'Could Kill Off Humanity For Good'

Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) creator Vitalik Buterin believes that unfriendly artificial intelligence (AI) poses the biggest risk to humanity.

What Happened: Buterin on Thursday called for more eyes on the problem of "unfriendly AI risk," which he sees as the “biggest thing” to potentially derail humanity over the next one or two centuries.

Buterin shared a paper by AI theorist and writer Eliezer Yudkowsky that made a case for why the current research community isn’t doing enough to prevent a potential future catastrophe at the hands of artificially generate intelligence.

When one of Buterin’s Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) followers suggested that World War 3 is likely a bigger risk at the moment, the Ethereum co-founder disagreed.

At the forefront of AI innovation are companies like Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) developing a humanoid robot Optimus, which CEO Elon Musk has said is the most important product the company is working on, even above its EV car business.

“The importance of Optimus will become apparent in the coming years,” Musk had said.

Bitcoin/cryptocurrency is either absolutely useless or absolutely unnecessary for any legitimate purpose but extremely useful for many illegitimate purposes, like money laundering, illegal (drug) trade, collecting untraceable ransomware payments! (Not to mention they are keep wasting massive amounts of electricity!) After proven useless as "virtual currency", they are now promoted as "virtual asset" (investment)! But, why do we need fake investments when we have plenty of real investments? What would happen to whole world economy, if everybody invested in fake investments, instead of real investments? Why do you think "Satoshi" took first 1 million bitcoins & disappeared to hiding (instead of proudly showing himself to whole world)? Realize it means government law enforcement cannot go after him! Also realize, as soon as "Satoshi" sells his share, everybody would rush to sell all their bitcoin/cryptocurrency! & so suddenly millions of people would lose all their invested money!
