New SpaceX Video Dramatically Reviews The Falcon Heavy Launch

On the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, noted entrepreneur and expansive thinker Elon Musk discussed his fears about artificial intelligence that were more chilling than the cinematic HAL-9000 supercomputer of science fiction. A last-minute addition to the SXSW conference, Musk was easily the biggest name on the program this year.
On Saturday, it was Elon Musk, who made an appearance at a panel hosted by "Westworld" creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.
Musk also warned of the dangers of AI as it outpaces human intelligence. He even revealed how his now-flourishing companies, Tesla and SpaceX, were once on the brink of failure.
Today's conversation ranged over all things Musk - from SpaceX and Tesla, to The Boring Company, Neuralink and the billionaire's concerns about artificial superintelligence.
SpaceX founder Elon Musk said Sunday that he plans to send a rocket to Mars by 2019. "Excitement for those who survive".

"I think most likely the form of government on Mars would be a direct democracy, where people vote directly on issues", he said.
"Experts think they know more than they do", he stated when asked why he disagreed with the general direction of positivity around AI technology.
"This is a situation where you have a very serious danger to the public".
"It needs a body that has oversight".
Musk said he initially gave SpaceX and Tesla an estimated likelihood of success of just 10%. For starters, the Falcon Heavy is the most powerful operational rocket on the planet, with SpaceX noting that it has "more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft at full power".
Musk said he only had around $30 to $40 million left by 2008 and needed to make a hard decision: put all the money into one company and let the other die, or split it between the two and risk them both failing.
"AI scares the hell out of me", he said, telling Nolan that while he's not typically a fan of regulation, he feels AI is more risky than nuclear weapons and it's not like we let just anyone build nukes. If you were to do a risk adjusted rate of return estimate on various industry opportunities, I would put building rockets and cars pretty much at the bottom of the list.
