Tencent Technology - Elon Musk wants to save humanity, according to a foreign media report. That's one of the reasons he wants to set up bases on the moon and Mars.
"There's a good chance we'll encounter another dark age." Musk said at the South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival on Sunday. "If there is another world war in the future, then we need to make sure that there are enough human civilizational fires to be able to rebuild human civilization."
Musk added that he wasn't predicting a World War III, he just felt we needed to be prepared for the future.
Musk is the founder of several companies (including SpaceX Space Exploration Technologies, Tesla Electric Vehicles, and Boring Tunneling). He tackled some of the biggest challenges and technical problems facing modern society, such as space travel and driverless cars. He spent two days at the SXSW festival and talked about his work.
But Musk isn't exactly pessimistic in his rhetoric; he also envisions a nightlife on Mars.
"Everything is needed on Mars, including everything from cast iron workshops to pizza parlors and nightclubs. There should also be a lot of great bars on Mars. "I'm sorry," he said.
It is by no means easy to achieve all this. He has said that at one point his SpaceX company was so unsustainable that he had to borrow money from friends to keep it going.
"For SpaceX, the first three launch missions have failed. If the fourth launch fails again, we're completely screwed. "I'm sorry," he said. The company's focus right now is on building the code-named BFR spacecraft.
Musk also addressed the topic of artificial intelligence. He has always feared that artificial intelligence could bring about another world war. He also addressed such concerns during Sunday's question-and-answer session.
"Artificial intelligence scares me." He said. He said he doesn't like the constraints of regulatory agencies, but he believes artificial intelligence is more dangerous than nuclear weapons.
He pointed out the need to ensure that our future AI and humans are in a symbiotic relationship.
However, he does not state whether the possibility of AI leading to a world war is what is forcing us off the planet. (compiled/learned)
