PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — Tesla CEO Elon Musk elicited a bit of wonder when he described a world 20 years from now where electric autonomous cars are the norm and owning a fuel-powered self-driving car is like owning a horse.But his on-stage interview with Gov. Brian Sandoval at the National Governors Association meeting on Friday took a foreboding turn when Sandoval asked whether people should fear robots taking their jobs. What Musk worries about more is robots taking their lives.“Until people see robots going down the street and killing people, they don’t know how to react. It seems really ethereal,” he said. “I think we should be really concerned about AI [artificial intelligence] … AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of civilization.”
