Elon Musk: (EM) “the big aerospace companies had no interest in radical innovation, all they wanted to do is try to make their old technology slightly better over the years.

Particular in rockets it is pretty bad.

People always think technology get’s automatically better every year – but it does not – it only get’s better if smart people work like crazy to make it better. That is how any technology actually get’s better.”

Q: “Should people that want to be useful get PhD’s?”

Elon Musk: “probably not.”


EM: “I am certain there is a self-sustainable mars colony… something that could get accomplished in 10 years.”

EM: “the AI will not develop it’s own will – but someone could steal it and use it for bad – OpenAI tries to make AI widely available to the public (Open Source), so it does not get concentrated in the hands of the few”

OpenAI’s mission is to ensure that artificial general intelligence (AGI) — by which we mean highly autonomous systems that outperform humans at most economically valuable work — benefits all of humanity.  src:

… he really thinks computers could get directly hooked up to a human brain.

“My time is mostly split between SpaceX and Tesla and half a day of OpenAI a week”

“80% is spend on engineering and design… developing next generation product”

Gwynn shotwell is doing most of the economics at SpaceX

PS: Team, Team, Team, Team…

Never met Musk, but as having been a Musk fan for a while… since Musk’s CATASTROPHIC decision to buy Twitter and open it up to free-hate-speech, more news has surfaced from (unproofen!) ex-employees at SpaceX, that Musk THINKS he is a genius but in fact, the geniuses are in the TEAM around Musk @Tesla and @SpaceX constantly correcting grave mistakes.

Mr Musk does not have such TEAM (yet) @Twitter, but (as always with men) his success and wide spread publicity might have made him over-confident

that he can accomplish ANYTHING ON HIS OWN, while it is actually THE TEAM surrounding him, that did all that great work.
