Elon Musk: SpaceX Mars ship could make short flights by next year
"We're actually building that ship right now", Musk said at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas, during a Q&A with "Westworld" co-creator Jonathan Nolan, a longtime friend.
There was even a sing-along with Kimbal Musk, Elon's brother, to the tune of "My Little Buttercup". "I think that's the single biggest existential crisis that we face, and the most pressing one", he said.
It's important to make sure the dawn of AI is one that's symbiotic with humanity.
"The danger of AI is much greater than the danger of nuclear warheads, by a lot and nobody would suggest that we allow anyone to just build nuclear warheads if they want - that would be insane". He went on to share that he got to watch the Falcon Heavy launch alongside Musk in launch control, and that he was in awe of the incredible achievement made possible by the contribution of so many people. And while it won't be capable of getting anyone to Mars just yet, he said it would be able to do short up and down flights and have a liftoff thrust twice that of a Saturn 5, the NASA rocket at the heart of the Apollo program. "It kind of reads like (Ernest) Shackleton's ad for Antarctic explorers: hard, dangerous, good chance you'll die".
"A digital extension of you, that is an AI, the AI extension of you, a tertiary layer of intelligence, so you've got your limbic system, your cortex, and the tertiary layer which is a digital AI extension of you, and high bandwidth connection is what achieves a tight symbiosis".
He made a fortune as the co-founder of PayPal, developed the world's first mass produced electric sports auto and then shot his own one into space when he got bored of it.
That is, in part, what his quest to establish bases on the moon and Mars is about.
"I think it's unlikely that we'll never have a world war again", he said.
"Life can not just be about solving one sad problem after another".
