  • 'More dangerous than nukes': Elon Musk still firm on regulatory oversight of AI

"A self-sustaining base. ideally on Mars.it's more likely the Mars base will survive than a Moon base". They need to be things that inspire you, that make you glad to wake up in the morning and be part of humanity.

Musk spoke at length about his role as an entrepreneur with SpaceX and electric auto maker Tesla Inc, his concerns about advancements in artificial intelligence ("It scares the hell out of me") and the need to put a price on carbon emissions in order to develop a sustainable energy system.

'We are building the first Mars, or interplanetary ship, and I think well be able to do short trips, short up and down flights, by first half of next year, ' Musk told Westworld co-creator Jonathan Nolan, who was moderating the talk.

The incendiary comment was made on March 9 when Rai was campaigning with party candidate Pradeep Kumar at Narpatganj. Araria Loksabha bypoll saw 57% voter turnout while Bhabhua and Jehanabad saw 54.3% and 50.6% voters respectively.

And SpaceX didn't disappoint, using the iconic Life on Mars as a soundtrack for the film.

Pointing to AlphaGo and its predecessor AlphaGo Zero, Musk said AI is capable of vastly more than anyone knows, and said the rate of improvement is also exponential.

He said 2008 was an incredibly hard year - SpaceX's Falcon 1 rocket failed for the third time, and Tesla nearly went bankrupt two days before Christmas. He had to borrow money from friends to keep going. (Unclear; he's had many, including the first three SpaceX launches.) How much of his time does he spend building tunnels? "If the fourth launch had failed, we would have been dead", he said.

England will be gunning for Grand Slam revenge - Sexton
The Irish stayed undefeated by dispatching Scotland 28-8 with a four-tries bonus point at Lansdowne Road on Saturday. A simple pass would have resulted in a Hogg try but Jones made a mess of it and the chance went begging.

"In the short term, Mars is really about getting the spaceship built, and we're making great progress", he said of SpaceX's Mars ship. Musk's been known to express concerns that AI could bring about the next World War and Sunday's Q&A was no different.

"I could put it all into one company, and the other company would definitely die, or if I split it into both SpaceX and Tesla, then they both might die", he said. "We have to figure out some way to ensure that the advent of digital superintelligence is one which is symbiotic with humanity". Less than 120 minutes later, SpaceX/Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted that the demo satellites - each measuring about the size of a mini-refrigerator and carrying computer, power, command and control, propulsion and Global Positioning System navigation equipment - had successfully deployed and begun communicating with Earth stations.
