Exactly. Most AI scientists do not think it’s credible, including many of my own friends on facebook. I do. I think Elon Musk is exactly on target — it IS existentially important, very soon, and I don’t think most AI scientists have the slightest clue, because they are stuck in the weeds and do not lift their heads and really think at a useful, serious level. They are permanently fixed on today, and the future is unknown, but that is not the case! We project, and when it is gigantically important, we have to put unusual methods of restraint. This is the greatest crisis ever, and deserves everything that Elon Musk recommends.
