When Elon Musk found out that China’s most expensive man was a fakir Elon Musk is currently the richest person in the world ($236 billion), and despite the fact that Jack Mama’s net worth is $34.5 billion, he was once the richest person in Asia. However, apart from the cash, both come from humble foundations and have carved their own niche.
Elon Musk is not only the richest man in the world, but he is extremely smart when it comes to science and technology. He is a leading expert at SpaceX and has run the planning group at Tesla. Despite the fact that Jack Mama started out as an English teacher, he went on to build one of the largest tech and retail companies in China. However, believe it or not, he’s no Elon, and the Alibaba pioneer learned this reality the hard way.
During the Discussion co-address meeting in 2019, Elon Musk and Jack Mama discussed a wide range of topics, including man-made brain power, Mars and the set of experiences mankind has. However, during the conversation, everyone noticed how Elon Musk played the role of maternal uncle. Musk made obscure jokes and sometimes ridiculed Jack for his overly general outlook on things.
One such anecdote was when Jack Mama said, “I think artificial intelligence will open up another segment of the world’s general public that tries to understand itself better than the rest of the world and the future.” It is very difficult to guess. 99.99% of human expectations in history about the future were completely baseless.
During the conversation, Jack Mama talks about the risks of computer based intelligence and how artificial intelligence is not a threat to humanity. He further said that fake intelligence poses no threat to street smart people like him.
Mama said, “I don’t think computerized logic is a risk, I’d be hard-pressed because people are smart enough to figure out that man-made brain power is a lot like ours, street-wise.” Look, we’ve never been scared of it. We recognize that it is extraordinarily silly, and that we need to change ourselves to embrace it.
