Tesla Offers Evangelists a Discount on Next Roadster, So We Know That Now

Speaking at the National Governors Association summer meeting in Rhone Island, Musk discussed the future of driverless cars and space travel, the strides made so far in AI research and development and the immediate need to regulate the AI sector.

To avoid such a catastrophe, Musk suggested regulators need to step in certain AI developments to examine their safety.

"Probably in 10 years, more than a half of new vehicle production is electric in the United States", said Musk, adding "half of all production will be EV, I think nearly all cars produced will be autonomous".

The SpaceX and Tesla founder warned the concerned authorities of the mistakes in policy-making, particularly that regulations are usually set up when "bad things happen" and when there is a "public outcry". Because I think by the time we are reactive in AI regulation, it's too late.

"AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization, in a way that vehicle accidents, airplane crashes, faulty drugs, or bad food were not", he said.

Musk, along with Stephen Hawking and many other luminaries, has already warned that AI could be a major threat to us all.

"November or December of this year, we should be able to go all the way from a parking lot in California to a parking lot in NY with no controls touched in the entire journey." said Musk from TED 2017 earlier this year.

According to Mask, the artificial intelligence can be used in the information war, in particular the propagation of fake news.

Air Force and the National Disaster Response Force are helping the state administration in relief and rescue operations. Rajkot Municipal Commissioner Banchhanidhi Pani said, adding they have alerted citizens not to venture out of houses.

In this light, Musk's comments are at least bringing some attention to an under-examined topic.

Musk said it's a little "verbose" right now and will be fixed tomorrow.

Musk isn't the only one spewing AI-hating, controversial headline-worthy quotes in the hope to hit the headlines.

Indeed, on Saturday, Musk presented the stark commercial realities.

What to expect from GOT characters who made it to Season 7
Turner won't spill the beans on the possibility of a Sansa/Arya reunion in season 7 , but if it did happen, she would be thrilled. Given that Jon and Sansa will be in close proximity for at least the beginning of the next season, expect tension and lots of it.

The entrepreneur said state legislators should start by forming a regulatory committee, whose first task would be to develop a full understanding of AI.

"You kind of need the regulators to do that for all the teams in the game". Otherwise the [corporate] shareholders will be saying, 'Why aren't you developing AI faster?

Money doesn't care about humanity. At the said event, Musk spoke about the looming dangers "we face as a civilisation" with machines, robots, and anything electronic soon dominating the ecosystem. Until it's too late, that is.
