On Tuesday, a group of researchers released a report outlining the dangers of AI advancement, aptly titled "The Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence: Forecasting, Prevention, and Mitigation". In space, however, Musk's Tesla vehicle will be exposed to very strong radiations and could disintegrate within a year, according to William Carroll, a chemistry expert at the University of Indiana.

Musk will continue to "donate and advise the organization", OpenAI said in a blog post February 20, adding that "As Tesla continues to become more focused on AI, this will eliminate a potential future conflict for Elon". The company has announced that he will be stepping down from the OpenAI board, but will "continue to donate and advise the organisation". OpenAI sees this broadening base of funders as essential as it increases investment in "our people and the compute resources necessary to make consequential breakthroughs in artificial intelligence".

The blog post also announced new donors for OpenAI, including video game developer Gabe Newell, Skype founder Jaan Tallinn, and the former USA and Canadian Olympians Ashton Eaton and Brianne Theisen-Eaton. That will involve addressing the policy areas that need changing if we want artificial intelligence to have the most positive impact.

He has been one of AI's most vocal critics, stressing the potential harms. On Aug. 11, 2017, he tweeted that artificial intelligence poses a bigger threat to humanity than North Korea, even as the possibility of a nuclear missile attack escalated after President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un exchanged threatening words.

Entrepreneur and technology billionaire Elon Musk has taken on many different challenges in a short time. After revolutionizing the payment industry with PayPal, Musk turned his sights on electric cars by creating Tesla, and proceeded to put the private space industry on the map with the creation of SpaceX.

He is also the founder of the Boring Company which digs tunnels, and the brain science venture, Neuralink.

On February 6th, 2018, at 2045 UTC, the first Falcon Heavy was launched into space.

Tesla has been known to struggle with production bottlenecks recently, running significantly behind on delivery times.
