Elon Musk's AMA
My favourite responses from “I am Elon Musk, CEO/CTO of a rocket company, AMA!”:
Previously, you’ve stated that you estimate a 50% probability of success with the attempted landing on the automated spaceport drone ship tomorrow. Can you discuss the factors that were considered to make that estimation?
I pretty much made that up. I have no idea :)
Hi Elon. A friend of mine is all paranoid about the computer singularity, and used your name as a source of his paranoia. Don’t you think it could all be a bunch of hype? Awesome car/rocket/etc stuff you do! Huge fan!
The timeframe is not immediate, but we should be concerned. There needs to be a lot more work on AI safety. And, with all due respect to the Roomba dude, that is not a concern [youtube video]
I would suggest anyone to read through the whole thing. It’s awesome.
