Elon Musk: AI makes it hard for me to remain motivated

last quote in this transcript from CNBC interview

{{You know, how do we find meaning in life if the AI could do your job better than you can? I mean, if I think about it too hard, it can be just dispiriting and demotivating. Because, I mean, I go through I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into building the companies. And then I’m like, wait, should I be doing this? Because if I’m sacrificing time with friends and family that I would prefer to do, but then ultimately, the AI can do all these things. Does that make sense? I don’t know. To some extent, I have to have deliberate suspension of disbelief in order to remain motivated.}}



I do not fully understand why every notable person who is full of something needs to go on and on. Frankly it is a personal problem of Musk’s. Or another cheesy sales job. The latter is most probable.

This is like Howard Hughes claiming he will fix all your problems. It is dumb.
