Making an appearance on a couch with his friend, creator of science fiction western series Westworld Jonathan Nolan, Musk said that although he's not usually an advocate for regulation and oversight, the AI proposition is where he can make an exception. The three revealed a trailer of sorts around the February launch of the Falcon Heavy, The Verge reported.

SpaceX launched the world's most powerful rocket, the Falcon Heavy, last month, sending Musk's red Tesla Roadster vehicle toward an orbit near Mars. This is not a TV show trailer.

However, he said that over time, he felt Tesla had caused him far "more drama" than SpaceX. "We tried to distill that essence down".

"I'm very close to the cutting edge in AI and it scares the hell out of me".

"This is not a movie trailer. We hope that it will be a trailer for a part of the next chapter of human history", Nolan said, first showing the audience his video at the annual South by Southwest festival on Saturday.

Musk, who also founded auto company Tesla, said conflict is welded into mankind's history. Joking about creating a campaign for bringing people to the Red Planet, Musk said "it's hard, dangerous, and there's a good chance you'll die".

This would be the first time in East Central Railway's history that every post at a railway station would be taken over by women personnel.

Musk, who was being filmed by National Geographic as the rocket launched from the Kennedy Space Center, was astounded as he watched the flight.

"Some AI experts think they know more than they do and they think they're smarter than they are. this tends to plague smart people, they define themselves by their intelligence and they don't like the idea that a machine can be way smarter than them so they just discount the idea, which is fundamentally flawed".

When the first Falcon Heavy launch has happened, the rocket was the most powerful one that has ever been launched.

Once Musk figures out how to get to Mars, the real work will begin, as humans will have to build everything they need to survive in the planet. In an accompanying tweet, Musk made it clear that the feat was performed to inspire: "Life can not just be about solving one sad problem after another". "That can not be the only thing". There need to be things that inspire you, that make you glad to wake up in the morning and be part of humanity. "That's why we did this".

Articles, books, podcasts, and YouTube videos have debated the merits and practicalities of almost all of Musk's creations, innovations, and upcoming ideas.
