Elon Musk's father: Fieser Liester attack against his son

 Elon Musk's father: Fieser Liester attack against his son When Elon Musk (51) comes to speak of his father, then nothing good is to be expected. He was simply "a terrible person", Musk stated at "Rollingstone.com" years ago and immediately accused him of manipulated him and committed various crimes. © Theo Wargo/Wireimage Elon Musk's father - too thick and not the favorite child: nasty blasphemy attack against his son Errol Musk (76) has now once more demonstrated in an interview in Australian radio that this antipathy is based on mutuality.

Le robot « Bumble C » a esquissé un salut de la main après être arrivé sur scène, ce vendredi à Palo Alto, en Californie. AFP © - The robot "Bumble C" sketched a hi after having arrived on stage, this Friday in Palo Alto, California. AFP He plans to "transform civilization" and build a "future of abundance" where poverty will have disappeared. Elon Musk presented two OPTIMUS humanoid robot on Friday on Friday, which her Tesla company hopes to produce one day by "millions". "Bumble C", a first version of the robot, arrived by walking carefully on the Californian scene where the annual conference "Tesla Ai Day" took place on the progress in artificial intelligence of the electric car manufacturer. The robot sketched a hi and a video showed it bringing an employee a package and sprinkling plants. Employees have also brought a more advanced optimus prototype on casters, with less visible cables but still unable to walk on its own. Elon Musk recognized that other organizations have designed more sophisticated robots, but "they lack a brain and they do not have the intelligence necessary to move themselves, (…) and they are very expensive ». The boss of Tesla aims a robot which will ultimately cost "probably less than $ 20,000", and will be designed to be replicated in "millions of units". He bet on first deliveries within three to five years. The conference must be used to recruit more engineers to achieve this objective, and thus "fundamentally transform civilization". "Musk faces the skeptics" the multimillionaire had presented in 2021 this project of a robot which can accomplish repetitive tasks in place of humans. "This means a future of abundance, a future where there is no poverty, where people will have what they want in terms of products and services," detailed the boss of SpaceX (rocket) and Neuralink (brain implants), never stingy in extraordinary predictions. "Many people think we are just a cool manufacturer", but Tesla is also "the leader of artificial intelligence," said Elon Musk. Since the announcement of the humanoid robot, "Musk faces skeptics," said Wedbush Securities analyst. "The market is concentrated on improving batteries, the production capacities of new factories (Berlin, Austin) and on competition from all sides for electric cars. Not on humanoid robots ”. VIDEO. "Tesla Bot": Elon Musk reveals the contours of his future humanoid robot The boss also divides on autonomous vehicles, which he has been promising for years. A Californian agency thus filed a complaint in August against Tesla, accusing her of lying on these technologies. But Elon Musk believes to have the best security test scores. "You have the moral obligation to deploy (an autonomy system) if it reduces the number of accidents and deaths," he said on Friday. "Even if you are going to have trials and criticisms, because the people you have saved life do not know it, while when people die occasionally or are injured, the States are aware of if there was a problem with autopilot ”. "Catgirl version" Elon Musk plans to test Optimus in the group's Californian factory to prove its usefulness. He hopes that the robot will one day be "friendly" and that discussing it will seem "natural". He also promised security features, to avoid a "Terminator scenario" . "Naturally there will be an Catgirl version of our Optimus robot," tweeted the whimsical entrepreneur during the conference, with the photo of a female back silhouette, camped in front of a line of metal robots. He also declared, twice, that it was "essential" that the company building this robot be listed on the stock market, "because if the public does not like what Tesla does, the public can buy shares and vote differently ”. "It is very important that I can't just do what I want," he added, laughing. This comment will not go unnoticed in the context of the conflict between it to Twitter , and must lead to a major challenges in mid-October. The richest man in the world signed a social network buying contract in the spring, before returning to his decision in July. The platform pursues him in court to force him to honor his commitment. Elon Musk said he wanted to make a private company (not listed on the stock market), which would therefore escape any external control.
