    Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk Spar Over Future of Artificial Intelligence
    Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have differing views on artificial intelligence, leading to a social media feud this week.

    Tech giants Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg are feuding on social media on the impact of artificial intelligence.

    The Facebook CEO referred to Musk's beliefs on AI as "pretty irresponsible" in a Facebook Live session on Sunday, according to NBC News. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO is known for his "doomsday" views and believes that AI could become humanity's "biggest existential threat" if left unchecked.

    When asked about Zuckerberg's comment, Musk said he had discussed the subject with the Facebook CEO.

    "I’ve talked to Mark about this. His understanding of the subject is limited," Musk wrote on Twitter.
