Elon Musk Thinks Computers Will Surpass Humans In Every Way Possible

Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Wednesday mentioned that computers are getting smarter than people in more and more spheres and that the development will proceed.

They might be far surpassed in every single way. He assures it, Musk mentioned to Jack Ma, chairman of Alibaba, on the World Artificial Intelligence Conference in Shanghai.

The comments highlight an evolving panorama in technology, including in artificial intelligence — an area technology companies are tapping to reinforce their merchandise and sell to companies.

Musk pointed to advances in chess and the Chinese board game of Go as proof of progress in AI.

He talked about how in the future technology from Neuralink, a start-up he co-founded, may give individuals a solution to enhance their abilities in certain subjects. The company is looking to draw on AI for augmenting people’s cognitive capabilities with brain-machine interfaces. The company isn’t there yet, though.

The very first thing we should always assume is we’re very dumb, Musk mentioned. We can undoubtedly make things smarter than ourselves.

Ma had a distinct view, suggesting that a computer has by no means spawned a human being, or perhaps a mosquito.

And Ma stated that he doesn’t wish to play chess or Go in opposition to a machine. These video games had been designed for people to play against one another, he mentioned.

The Tesla chief has spoken before about AI. In 2017 he suggested that competitors amongst nations in AI may result in World Battle III.

Tesla has sought to do extra in AI. Musk revealed that Tesla was engaged on a customized AI chip in 2017, and final month he stated the automaker would “almost certainly” begin retrofitting older autos with its chips by the end of 2019.

In 2015 Musk co-based OpenAI as an AI analysis nonprofit. He left the board last year. He stated in a tweet earlier this yr that OpenAI and Tesla have been at instances each attempting to hire the same individuals, and that he and OpenAI didn’t at all times see eye to eye.

Multi-planetary Living is Possible Using 1% of the Earth’s GDP; Says Elon Musk

… to understand it. He thinks that it is humanity’s best interest to fully secure its multi-planetary opportunities and resources as quickly as it is possible.

Advancement in technology has changed the way people live around the world. Change is inevitable and every day a new invention is made. At the much-awaited 2019 World Artificial Intelligence Conference in Shanghai, attendants were served with an intriguing debate between Alibaba founder and Chairman Jack Ma and Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. That heated discussion was about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its effects on humanity.

Ma and Musk spoke on a plethora of topics. Some of these topics include reforms to education, trips to Mars, jobs, and the general improvement of humanity. Regarding artificial intelligence, these two visionaries have different points of view.

Musk believes that AI is a danger to humanity while Ma believes in people being ‘street smart.’ Thus, according to Ma, when artificial intelligence evolves, humanity should cope with it just fine. He explained:

“It’s impossible that humans could be controlled by machines. They’re machines that are invented by humans.”

On the other hand, Musk is afraid that a time will come when computers will surpass humans’ ability to understand it. He thinks that it is humanity’s best interest to fully secure its multi-planetary opportunities and resources as quickly as it is possible.

Earth Preservation

On the other hand, Ma has no plans to go to Mars in the near future. However, he believes that it is more important to preserve the earth that we are on. But, he complimented Musk saying:

“We need heroes like you (who want to go to Mars), but we need heroes like us (who will fix Earth).”

Musk also agreed that Earth preservation is vital which also makes an important part of Tesla’s mission. He believes that it will take around 1% of the world’s GDP to make humans multi-planetary. That amount is comparable and may be less than what people spend on things like makeup yearly.

“Spending resources on making life multi-planetary would be enough with just 1% of the earth’s GDP.”

The Artificial Intelligence Impact on humanity

Regarding employment, Jack Ma asked why humans need that many jobs. He added that although people are always afraid that technology will take jobs away from them, jobs increase every day. He believes that with the introduction of artificial intelligence, people can change to three working days in a week and the average workday may last for only four hours. According to him, these shorter working hours will enable people to enjoy their lives and live longer.

On his part, Musk admitted that there is a growing worry since the birth rate around the world is declining constantly. He believes that the biggest issue that will face the world in the next 20 years is population collapse and added that it could prove to be a serious issue since people usually have a 20-yer boot sequence.

Ma agrees to that fact stating that even though China’s1.4 billion people sounds a lot, the country may encounter an entirely different landscape in 20 years. On the other hand, Musk alleged that the rise of AI will threaten most jobs making them pointless. He explained that AI evolves and it will reach a time when computers will make their software.

Musk suggests that people should study fields like engineering and other disciplines that deal with human relations. He believes that these fields will be relevant even with the rise of the AI age. He also said that this is the idea behind Neuralink and its brain-machine interface. The brain-machine interface will ensure that humans will not be left behind.

The Future

To succeed in the future, Jack Ma believes that humans must not just have an IQ. Instead, they should also have emotional intelligence and love intelligence too. Musk agreed stating:

“I agree with him. Love is the answer.”

On education, Jack Ma voiced his worries about the current education systems that he believes should be more constructive and creative. He explained that he wished to spend more time training children how to sing, dance, paint, and do all other creative things that enable people to live like humans.

Elon Musk thinks that solutions like Neuralink’s neural lace could make a difference in enabling people to upload and quickly learn many new skills. He thinks that the concept of ‘The Matrix’ movie’ is not far from reality.

At the time of writing the Alibaba (BABA) stock is up 0.83% trading at $167.48 while Tesla (TSLA) stock is also up 0.71% trading at $215.59.

Elon Musk to kick off 2019 World AI Conference with Alibaba founder Jack Ma

Tesla CEO Elon Musk will be joining Alibaba founder Jack Ma on stage for a … Musk’s private space firm, SpaceX, is currently testing a rocket engine … Musk also revealed that he will be launching The Boring Company’s China …

Tesla CEO Elon Musk will be joining Alibaba founder Jack Ma on stage for a conversation at the opening stages of the upcoming 2019 World Artificial Intelligence Conference in Shanghai, which will run from August 29 to 31, 2019. The update was related by a spokesperson from Alibaba on Monday, who added that the two entrepreneurs’ conversation will be held on the first day of the conference.

Elon Musk and Jack Ma, apart from being billionaire entrepreneurs, are both disruptors in their respective segments. Musk’s private space firm, SpaceX, is currently testing a rocket engine designed to take humanity to Mars, and his electric car and energy company, Tesla, is at a point where its latest vehicle, the Model 3, is causing serious disruptions in the auto segment.

Ma, on the other hand, is noted for adopting a startup culture that ultimately made Alibaba an e-commerce juggernaut in Asia, and one that outsells Amazon during its peak sale days. The Alibaba founder currently has an estimated net worth of $36.8 billion, while Musk has an estimated net worth of $19.1 billion.

The two entrepreneurs’ talk comes amidst the ongoing trade dispute between the United States and China. Last Friday, US President Donald Trump announced additional tariffs on about $550 billion of targeted Chinese goods, just hours after China announced tariffs on $75 billion of US goods.

Elon Musk has not publicly shared his opinions about the ongoing trade war, though he did address some concerns about China’s import tariffs on Twitter last year. Jack Ma, on the other hand, has been open about his disdain for the two countries’ trade dispute, noting late last year that it was “the most stupid thing in the world,” as noted in a Reuters report.

Elon Musk’s upcoming trip to China will not only involve his attendance at the 2019 World Artificial Intelligence Conference. In a Twitter announcement, Musk also revealed that he will be launching The Boring Company’s China division on the same trip.

The Tesla CEO is also expected to pay a visit to the Gigafactory 3 site in Shanghai, which is already nearing completion. Musk has noted that he expects Gigafactory 3 to start trial production runs of the Model 3 by the end of the year, though the factory’s buildout has been so rapid that the CEO’s estimates might end up being conservative. With the upcoming completion of the site’s substation next month, for example, Gigafactory 3 could go online as early as the start of September.

6 things to know about Justin Sun, the crypto whiz kid who postponed a $4.6 million lunch with …

He worked at the cryptocurrency startup — which has received backing from Google Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, and other blue-chip investors …

JustinSun5Instagram/Justin Sun

Crypto whiz kid Justin Sun postponed a $4.6 million charity lunch with Warren Buffett scheduled for Thursday, blaming a bout of kidney stones. Chinese media reported his real reason for rescheduling was that he was barred from leaving China following a laundry list of allegations that includes illegal fundraising, money laundering, gambling, and pornography.

The boss of Tron — the 11th largest cryptocurrency with a $1.5 billion market capitalization, according to CoinMarketCap — and file-sharing service BitTorrrent has dismissed the rumors. Sun streamed a live video on Tuesday that seemed to show he was in San Francisco. “I feel so much better now!” he tweeted on Wednesday. “It seems I will be back to work with full speed on this Friday!”

Here are six things to know about the 28-year-old tech entrepreneur.

A protégé of Alibaba founder Jack Ma

Instagram/Justin Sun

Justin Sun is a protégé of Alibaba founder and executive chairman Jack Ma. Sun’s oldest photo on Instagram shows him receiving a certificate from Ma. “Inspired by the best to shape the future for the better,” the caption reads.

Sun was the youngest member of the inaugural class at Hupan University, a Chinese business school founded by Ma in 2015, according to the South China Morning Post. Ma recruited 30 students who he believed could revolutionize the Chinese business world. Sun wrote his thesis on the blockchain industry, titling it “The Birth of a Decentralized Internet,” SCMP said. He graduated from Hupan in 2018.

An Ivy League graduate


Sun graduated from Peking University with a bachelor’s degree in history in 2011, according to his LinkedIn page. Peking is China’s second-best university, according to Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings. Two years later, Sun earned a master’s degree in political economy from the University of Pennsylvania, one of eight prestigious US colleges that make up the Ivy League.

An entrepreneur and dealmaker


Sun joined Ripple Labs as a chief representative and adviser in Greater China at the end of 2013, according to his LinkedIn page. He worked at the cryptocurrency startup — which has received backing from Google Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, and other blue-chip investors — for just over two years. Sun also founded Callme or Peiwo, China’s largest voice live-streaming app, in 2013.

In July 2017, Sun founded the Tron Foundation, a blockchain company with its own cryptocurrency that is “dedicated to building the infrastructure for a truly decentralized Internet,” his LinkedIn page states. Less than a year later, Tron acquired BitTorrent, a peer-to-peer file-sharing service, for around $126 million, according to TechCrunch. Sun currently serves as CEO of Peiwo, Tron, and BitTorrent.
