Tesla founder Elon Musk is not very impressed with Google's Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based 'Clips' camera. Musk has been quite vocal about his anti-AI sentiments in the past.

"Clips" does image recognition and AI processing on-device, deploying machine learning to automatically click best pictures for you. Musk, who thinks AI could trigger World War III and poses a far greater threat than North Korea, has now tweeted against "Clips" and its prowess.

Google declined to comment specifically on Musk's tweet, CNET reported on Monday. The $249 "Clips" is a lightweight, hands-free camera that helps people capture spontaneous moments.

"We've put machine learning capabilities directly into 'Clips' so when you turn it on, the camera looks for good moments to capture. Clips looks for stable, clear shots of people you know," Google said.

The camera shoots short-motion photos that last several seconds. The clips sync wirelessly and in seconds from the camera to the Google Clips app for Android or iOS.

"Finally, all the machine learning happens on the device itself. And just like any point-and-shoot, nothing leaves your device until you decide to save it and share it," Google added.
