Artificial Intelligence (AI) involves a combination of computer science robust datasets which can troubleshoot our problems. Now the question is whether it is a boon or bane? Though AI acts as a problem solver there are some disadvantages associated with it. Of course, technology has both pros and cons just like two sides of a coin.

Musk is worried about AI based on his knowledge about machine intelligence and its development as he is so close to cutting edge in AI. Therefore considering his warning about Artificial Intelligence development and the need to regulate seems extremely important.
