Will artificial intelligence supersede human intellect sooner than we thought?

As we see the rapid rise in AI’s capabilities, many may be wondering if it can or will pass by the intelligence level of people. After all, with programs like ChatGPT, designs, images and writing are already produced at a much quicker pace than humans can.

Elon Musk has been a major contributor to the advancement of AI’s capacity. With his work through Tesla, SpaceX and Neuralink, he’s seen first-hand how technology is evolving.

“My guess is that we’ll have AI that is smarter than any one human probably around the end of next year,” Musk said in an interview on X with Nicolai Tangen, Norges Bank Investment Management CEO.

Musk says the problem with AI growth last year had to do with a shortage of chips.

“Last year it was chip-constrained. People could not get enough Nvidia chips. This year it’s transitioning to a voltage transformer supply. In a year or two, it’s just electricity supply,” Musk added.

This statement comes after Musk confirmed that the first person using a brain chip from Neuralink had successfully used it to control their computer mouse with their brain. As for a shortage of chips, OpenAI co-founder and CEO Sam Altman is currently seeking to raise $5-$7 trillion for a ‘chip project’ which includes building factories in the United Arab Emirates.

For years people have worried about the Doomsday Clock and the impending end knocking around the corner for humanity as we get further into technological advancements. While these growing concerns and new technologies are right in our face, we should not fear. Vigilance and preparation for what’s coming is certainly wise, but for Christians, we must remember that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.

The end is closer each day, but we should not lose focus on the One who has called us into an eternal relationship with Him.
