PARIS, May 23 (Reuters) - Nobody would have to work in a 'benign' scenario of Artificial Intelligence taking over industries, tech billionaire Elon Musk said on Thursday, adding that this scenario in his view was the most likely.

"Long-term, in a benign scenario, any job that somebody does will be optional, like if you want to do a job as kind of like a hobby. You do a job, but otherwise the AI and the robots will provide any goods and services that you want," Musk told the Vivatech trade fare in Paris via a video link.
