NASA wants to send flying swarms of robot 'bees' to explore Mars

  NASA wants to send flying swarms of robot 'bees' to explore Mars NASA commissioned a team of scientists to develop bio-inspired 'bees' to explore Mars. The tiny drones will have bumblebee shaped bodies and wings inspired by cicadas, the optimal shape for generating lift in the Martian atmosphere.Move over, Elon Musk. Future exploration of Mars may not be carried out by humans at all if a team of researchers has their way.

Humans are underrated . — Elon Musk (@ elonmusk ) April 13, 2018. A month ago shares were trading at 0 and then slid to 2. Things have started to recover now that Musk says the company will be profitable and cash flow positive in the third quarter.

To be clear, Musk is not talking about the self-driving technology in his company's cars — a feature that has come under scrutiny following a number of scary mishaps, including one that may have resulted in a fatal crash in California last month.

Instead, Musk means Tesla is kicking some of the robots out of its factory in favour of human workers. "Yes, excessive automation at Tesla was a mistake," Musk said on Twitter, in response to the Wall Street Journal's Tim Higgins. "To be precise, my mistake. Humans are underrated."

Human finger bone fossil found in Saudi Arabia changes the story on human global migration

  Human finger bone fossil found in Saudi Arabia changes the story on human global migration Scientists say they have discovered a fossilised human finger bone in the Saudi Arabian desert estimated to be about 85,000 years old, making it the oldest human specimen discovered outside Africa and the Levant.If confirmed, the Arabian finger bone would be the first and earliest homo sapiens fossil found on the Arabian Peninsula, as well as the oldest specimen of the human species to be discovered outside of Africa and its doorstep, the Levant.

Опубликовано: 14 апр. 2018 г. According to a report by Gizmodo, Elon Musk admitted on Friday that “ humans are underrated ” and that his company Tesla had become too reliant on automation. Musk said , "Yes, excessive automation at Tesla was a mistake.

In his interview with CBS This Morning, Musk says that relying too much on robotics was his mistake. Today will go down in the annals of history as the day that Elon Musk said that humans are underrated . Yes, excessive automation at Tesla was a mistake. To be precise, my mistake.

Musk went into additional detail in an interview with CBS This Morning, in which he stated, "We had this crazy, complex network of conveyor belts…. And it was not working, so we got rid of that whole thing."

So far, those automated processes have produced some pretty unimpressive results. The company announced earlier this month that it had once again missed its production goals for its Model 3, and orders of the mass-market sedan have been pushed back six to nine months.

Musk's admission that his complex networks of automated systems just wasn't doing the trick marks a major shift in the Tesla CEO's line of thinking. He's previously talked up the promise of automation in his factories, suggesting it would be the solution to the company's long-standing production issues.

Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk just paid a rare compliment to his own species, calling humans " underrated " on Twitter last week.What brought about this

We have to agree with Musk here: Humans may be underrated , but sleeping on the floor certainly isn't. Original article on Live Science. Scientists Say Elon Musk 's 'Nano' Claims Don't Make Any Sense.

"Our internal code name for the factory, the machine that builds the machine, is the alien dreadnought," Musk said on a call with investors in 2016, according to Business Insider. "[When] our factory looks like an alien dreadnought, then we know it's probably right."

This is the 'couch' Elon Musk sleeps on when he works late at Tesla, and the Internet is aghast

  This is the 'couch' Elon Musk sleeps on when he works late at Tesla, and the Internet is aghast People are raising money on GoFundMe to buy Tesla CEO Elon Musk a new couch.Musk said he has been sleeping on a couch in a conference room at his Fremont, California, Tesla factory as the company goes through what he called "production hell" for the company's Model 3 sedan.

Going to the effort of setting up a smart home just so you can turn your lights on and off from your phone may not seem like the best use of your time and resources, but with the right gear and apps you can put together some routines that really will impress family, friends, and occasional Airbnb guests.

Many likely find it fascinating and even promising, while it's safe to say that some find it quite scary. And it was not working, so we got rid of that whole thing," Musk admitted. He also owned up to it being his idea and adding that " humans are underrated ".

At the time, Musk said the factory would be at "alien dreadnought 0.5" while working on production for the Model 3. "And then it will take us another year or so, I don't know, summer 2018, to actually get to alien dreadnought version one," he said.

On an earnings call last year, Musk continued to talk up the role of automation in Tesla factories. "It's remarkable how much can be done by just beating up robots," he said. "Adding additional robots at choke points and just making lines go really, really fast. Speed is the ultimate weapon."

Now Musk is saying all of that automation is part of the problem, not the solution for Tesla. With a potential $US56 ($72) billion compensation package awaiting him, he'll turn to humans to get the assembly line running smoothly again — a production line that has been described as a living hell for those who have been on it.

Musk has made a habit of overpromising. He claimed issues with the Model X were the result of "putting too much technology all at once into a product." He started selling a "Full Self Driving" feature for an additional $US8000 ($10,303) well before he was ready to deliver on it.

His "alien dreadnought" production line is becoming more reliant on non-unionized, human workers. Maybe don't trust Elon Musk.

Boring meetings? Just leave, says Elon Musk .
The idea of just getting up and leaving a boring work meeting is a dream to many of us and it seems, it is one shared by one of the world's leading tech tycoons.The idea of just getting up and leaving a boring work meeting is a dream to many of us and it seems, it is one shared by one of the world's leading tech tycoons.
