Elon Musk says SpaceX could start testing Mars rockets in early 2019

Elon Musk says SpaceX could start testing Mars rockets in early 2019

"They certainly don't think it's possible, but if we do, they'll up their game". It scares the hell out of me.

The Q&A session ended on a surreal note as Musk, his younger brother Kimbal and Nolan all donned stetsons and sang a snippet of My Little Buttercup, a song from the 1986 movie The Three Amigos. AlphaGo Zero then crushed AlphaGo 100-0.

Musk also predicted that advances in AI will let self-driving cars handle "all modes of driving" by the end of 2019.

"Wishful thinking for sure is a source of many problems in many walks of life, wishful thinking causes a lot of trouble", he lamented.

"For the early people that go to Mars, it will be far more unsafe", he said. If the utility function of artificial intelligence is to maximise happiness of humans, a super-intelligent AI might decide that the best way to do that is to capture all humans and inject their brains with dopamine and serotonin. "We did for you".

"I think it's unlikely that we'll never have a world war again", he said.

"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. I love dad jokes, I'm a dad!"

Elon Musk said there are two things stressing him out most: production delays with the Tesla Model 3 and the dangers of artificial intelligence.

For every criticism that exists about Elon Musk, one aspect can't be debated: the man is a dreamer.

"A self-sustaining base. ideally on Mars.it's more likely the Mars base will survive than a Moon base".

However optimistic the timeline, the BFR's first test flights would just be a preview of an actual crewed trip to Mars.

Whether an AI-induced third World War is what drives us off the planet, he didn't say.

When Nolan asked what his fans could contribute to making those Martian dreams a reality, Musk replied that their "general support and encouragement, and goodwill" was enough for now - something that the cheering SXSW crowd had in abundance.
