FILE - Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, left, attends the FOX Networks 2016 Upfront Presentation Party on May 16, 2016, in New York and business investor Elon Musk arrives at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Feb. 27, 2017, in Beverly Hills, Calif. Filmmakers have long projected that artificial intelligence could spell the end of humanity. Musk, an early investor in the development of AI, told Vanity Fair earlier this year that he worries the technology could ultimately “produce something evil by accident,” such as “a fleet of artificial intelligence-enhanced robots capable of destroying mankind.” Tyson believes there’s nothing to worry about. Killer androids may make for fun film fodder, but he doesn’t think they’re an imminent, or eventual, reality. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File)
