The US President Donald Trump took this discussion to Twitter and soon arguments about the nuclear warheads broke out.

The famous investor and business magnate, Elon Musk, has repeatedly mentioned the problems that AI will bring to the human race.

Recently, he said that it is even worse than a nuclear war.

Zadeh got a pretty apt reply from Musk:

Before we start argument about the greatest threat to the World, we might just want to take a glance at the list of the disasters that our planetĀ is about to face. Nuclear war, climate change, AI, just name it! It is not an easy task to select one out of this deadly and scary list.
