Elon Musk said his AI brain chips company could 'solve' autism and schizophrenia

  Elon Musk said his AI brain chips company could 'solve' autism and schizophrenia Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk went on the Artificial Intelligence podcast with Lex Fridman and discussed his neural AI technology company Neuralink, which hopes to implant chips into human brains. Musk said he believes Neuralink will "solve a lot of brain-related diseases," naming autism and schizophrenia as examples. Autism is not a disease.Musk has talked before about Neuralink's potential to treat neurological conditions such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Elon Musk has made another grand claim about his plans to colonise the red planet with his space exploration company SpaceX.

Speaking at the US Air Force Space Pitch Day on Tuesday, Musk estimated that Starship, SpaceX's 100-passenger reusable rocket design, will cost $US2 million to launch.

Elon Musk called the lawyer who interviewed him for a Tesla shareholder lawsuit 'a bad human being' and other insults during a bizarre deposition

  Elon Musk called the lawyer who interviewed him for a Tesla shareholder lawsuit 'a bad human being' and other insults during a bizarre deposition Tesla CEOElon Musk repeatedly expressed his frustration with a lawyer interviewing him during a June 1 deposition, calling him "a shameful person" and other insults."You seem like a very, very bad person. Just a bad human being," Musk said to Randall Baron. "And I hope you come to regret your actions in the future, but you probably won't. And that's sad.

Musk said the animation came from computer-aided design files that engineers used to mock up the actual Mars system architecture and show how " It will take a while to build up to 1 , 000 ships." But that's not the only place the system could go. Musk thinks the ITS equipment could be used all over

In a series of follow up tweets, Musk threw out a few more figures about how many rockets will have to bring the necessary amount of cargo to properly set up base on Mars.

Elon Musk is feuding with a popular car TV show after it posted a video of a Porsche Taycan beating a Tesla Model S in a drag race

  Elon Musk is feuding with a popular car TV show after it posted a video of a Porsche Taycan beating a Tesla Model S in a drag race Tesla CEOElon Musk took issue with the TV show "Top Gear" over a video it posted on YouTube that showed the high-end trim of Porsche's Taycan electric sports car beating the high-end trim of Tesla's Model S sedan in a drag race. Another YouTube video, made by the drag-racing website DragTimes, speculated that "Top Gear" had not turned on the Model S's "Ludicrous Plus" feature, which allows it to achieve its fastest acceleration. Top Gear responded to criticism of the segment on Thursday, saying it had turned on Ludicrous Plus for the Model S and that the Taycan beat the Model S in all five of the drag races it ran.

Elon Musk thinks that it would take between 40 and 100 years for humanity to go from landing a ship full of colonists on Mars to establishing a So you'd really want ultimately I think on the order of 1 , 000 ships. It would take a while to build up to a thousand ships, and so I think if you say when we reach

That’s what Elon Musk says, at least. The tech billionaire wrote a new paper detailing his vision for a Musk states that methane is the ideal propellant because the technical challenges to harvest it on Mars are “Therefore, the crew compartment or the occupant compartment is set up so that you can do

"A thousand ships will be needed to create a sustainable Mars city... As the planets align only once every two years," he said. This led him to conclude it would take 20 years to transport one million tons of cargo which would "hopefully" allow for building a self-sustaining Mars base.

By Musk's mathematics, that would mean a total $US2 billion spent on launching the rockets - although over 20 years the cost could fluctuate.

Musk has a history of making alarming predictions about his plans to colonise Mars. Notably he has espoused the idea of targeting nuclear weapons to detonate just above the planet's ice caps, thereby causing the frozen water to evaporate releasing CO2 into the air and warming the planet's surface - rendering it more habitable for humans.

The theory has little scientific grounding however. A study published in Nature found there is unlikely to be enough CO2 in Mars' icecaps to engineer the desired greenhouse effect and, even if there were, Mars' atmosphere is constantly leaking into deep space so the gas would gradually disappear.

5 Books Elon Musk Thinks Everyone Should Read .
SpaceX founder Elon Musk reminds us of Marvin from The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. In addition to being a perpetually miserable robot from outer space (citation needed), he also has a brain the size of a planet. But how did he get so gosh-darned smart? DNA and upbringing probably had a lot to do with it - but so did reading the right books at the right age. Here are five books that Musk reckons everybody should read; from weighty science-fiction to breezy business tomes. Best of all, they're all mentally accessible to the average person. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.
