  • Will tech make jobs 'pointless'? Elon Musk and Jack Ma go head-to-head

"I never worry about the things that I can not solve". This is the Fermi Paradox. Not really, you know, we just seem like odd aliens.

While Ma acknowledged the fact that AI can already beat humans in certain games, he downplayed computers as merely "toys".

Meanwhile, AI will be needed for many jobs undesired by human workers, according to Ma.

"I think that because of artificial intelligence, people will have more time to enjoy being human beings". There's people out there who think we've found aliens. "Human speech to a computer will sound like very slow tonal wheezing, kind of like whale sounds".

Mr Ma said he was "quite optimistic" about AI. During his stay, Musk attended the World Artificial Intelligence Conference in Shanghai and toured the Gigafactory being built nearby. "If I had to guess what our biggest existential threat is, it's probably that..."

To this, Musk replied, "I dunno, man". He added that technology's rate of advancement is "outpacing our ability to understand it".

He scores a lot of goals, but he works a lot for the team. "He will continue improving in every game", added the Chilean. There was a nasty tackle against my centre back (Zimmermann) and it wasn't even given as a free kick.

"The computer will just get impatient, if nothing else", Musk said. "The heart is where wisdom comes from".

Elon Musk further said that humans need to rapidly adapt to keep up with technology and hoped that machines "are nice". His proposed solution is to "go along for the ride with AI" by connecting human brains to computers - and yes, he does have a start-up geared towards that goal. Man created the vehicle, but just because he can't run as fast, Ma suggested, doesn't mean man isn't as smart as a auto. "I'm not sure. I hope they're nice", he said.

However, the hot topic in the hour-long talk was AI, which has provoked increasing concern among scientists such as late British cosmologist Stephen Hawking who warned that it will eventually turn on and "annihilate" humanity.

Ultimately, Musk believes we will be left behind as a human race, behind AI.

Between the fatalistic approach towards AI that Musk takes, combined with Ma's more personable and positive outlook, the debate opens up questions in our increasingly AI-driven world.

Ma likened the opinion that people will not have the ability to compete using their machine creations in many facets of life - Musk's stance - to individuals of a century past attempting to out-run cars that they manufacture. On Thursday, he proclaimed that folks ought to have the ability to in reality work 12-hour weeks, a seeming reversal of feedback simply months prior that it is a privilege to work "996", or 9 to 9, six days every week.
