Elon Musk: Tesla could play a role in Artificial General Intelligence, decentralize Tesla Bot to avoid Terminator scenario

by Fred Lambert

Elon Musk announced that he is thinking about involving Tesla in the creation of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI).

He also added that he plans on decentralizing the control of Tesla Bot to avoid a Terminator-like scenario.

For a few years now, Musk has been pushing the idea that Tesla is the world’s leading company when it comes to real-world applications of artificial intelligence.

He describes Tesla’s fleet of vehicles equipped with sensors and computers for self-driving as “robots on wheels.”

Through this “real-world application,” the company has also been able to attract world-class AI talent, and Musk boasts that Tesla has the best AI team on the planet.

Now Musk took to Twitter this morning to announce that Tesla might go a step further and get involved in Artificial General Intelligence (AGI): “Tesla AI might play a role in AGI, given that it trains against the outside world, especially with the advent of Optimus.”
