AI looks pretty scary.
As artificial intelligence is increasingly considered the wave of the future, some leading business executives are starting to worry that the technology won't stop at regulating your thermostat or telling you how to get to work. Will the next round of advances mean Siri can do your job? Business heads ranging from Tesla's (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report Elon Musk to Alibaba's (BABA) - Get Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. Sponsored ADR Report Jack Ma certainly think so. Facebook's (FB) - Get Facebook, Inc. Class A Report Mark Zuckerberg, not so much.
Meanwhile, billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban seems freaked out about AI.
"However much change you saw over the past ten years with the Apple (AAPL) - Get Apple Inc. (AAPL) Report iPhone, that's nothing," Cuban said at a recent conference. Cuban also claims that Montreal and China are "kicking our ass" with artificial intelligence.

Cuban also expressed concern about technology usurping the current standard of everyday business practices, leaving many unemployed.
"There's going to be a lot of unemployed people replaced with technology and if we don't start dealing with that now, we're going to have some real problems," said Cuban.
