If you are interested in what Elon Musk said rather than the fact that he smoked Marijuana and people went crazy and Tesla shares dropped – read on.

  • AI – AI is not necessarily bad, it’s just going to be outside of human control… AI will be used as a weapon so the on ramp to serious AI – the danger is going to be more humans using it against each other. – 13min
  • Cybernetic collective or Cyber physical systems (CPS) – Any group of people – a company – is essentially a cybernetic collective of people and machines. There are different levels of complexity in the way these companies are formed. And then there is sort of a collective AI in the google search where we are all plugged in like nodes on a network. Like leaves on a big tree, where we are all feeding this network with our questions and answers. We are all collectively programming the AI. And Google and plus all the humans that connect to it are one giant cybernetic collective… that are constantly connected – 16min
  • Limbic resonance – The more limbic resonance the more engagement. Things are getting more and more connected. They are at this point constrained by bandwidth, our input output is slow, particularly output. Images are a way of communicating at high bandwidth – 19min
  • Superhuman cognition – The limbic system and the cortex are in a symbiotic relationship. The cortex is mostly in service to the limbic system. That’s what most of that computing power is arched towards. Now if we have a third layer which is the AI extension of yourself that is also symbiotic and there is enough bandwidth between the cortex and the AI extension of yourself such that the AI doesn’t defect or separate. Then that could be a positive outcome for the future. It will enable anyone who wants to have superhuman cognition. 26min
  • Human machine symbiosis – You are already a cyborg because your phone is an extension of yourself. It’s just that the data rate – rate of communication between you and the cybernetic extension of yourself that is your phone and computer is slow. It’s like a tiny straw of information flow between your biological self and your digital self. We need to make that tiny straw like a giant river, a huge, high-bandwidth interface. We need to expand the information flow between your biological self and your digital self. High bandwidth interface. It’s an interface problem. A data rate problem. Solve the data rate problem and I think we can hang onto human machine symbiosis through the long term. – 28min
  • If your biological self dies, you can upload into a new unit – 30min
  • Virtual reality – At some point technology will be indistinguishable from reality…this could be some simulation. If you assume any rate of improvement at all then games will be indistinguishable from reality or civilisation will end. One of those two things will occur. 44min
  • I think most likely, there are many simulations. These simulations, you might as well call them reality or multiverse. They are running on the substrate. That substrate is probably boring… I think if we are a simulation, it’s really boring outside the simulation. You make simulation that is way more interesting than reality. – 50min
  • The Tesla is programmed to ‘dance’ to ‘ballet’ (see for yourself)… I’m going to put video games in it.
  • 3D Traffic – You can have 100 levels of tunnel no problem. The fundamental issue with roads is that you have a 2D transport system and a 3D living and workspace environment so you have concentrated work environments and then you want to go into this 2D transport system which is pretty low density because cars are spaced out pretty far. And you are going to have traffic guaranteed. But if you can have 3D traffic system then you can solve all traffic. You can either go 3D up with a flying car or you can go 3D down with tunnels. You can arbitrarily relieve any traffic. You can go further down with tunnels than you can go up with buildings.
  • Flying cars – Too noisy and there’s too much airflow. The fundamental issues with flying cars is … Think about how loud toy drones are and how much air they blow. Now imagine that a thousand times heavier. Your neighbours are not going to be happy if you land a flying car in your backyard. 1hr 09min
  • Smokes a single puff of a joint at 2hr 10min
  • I like to get things done. I like to be useful. That is one of the hardest things to do – to be useful. 2hr 19min
