Elon Musk advises young people to stay relevant for the future

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla y SpaceX, spoke about what the career of the future will be: “The Artificial intelligence will make the jobs a bit useless, “he said in the World Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Shanghai beside Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba. In this labor framework, without a doubt, those who will have the least vulnerability to this irruption of technology will be those who are trained to program Artificial Intelligence software, as Elon Musk assured in his statements to CNBC. Elon Musk has made many predictions about the future of society and the role that his companies Tesla and SpaceX will play. Elon is not afraid to express himself in interviews, conferences, and even on social networks. Tech mogul recommends young people study engineering, although he warned that at some point “Artificial Intelligence will simply write its own software.” In this productive fabric, in which Artificial Intelligence will monopolize production and, probably, distribution, consumers will be more dependent on human interaction. Someone will have to get customers to consume these products and services. So “if you’re working on something that involves people or engineering, it’s probably a good focus for your future,” Musk concluded. In August, during the Artificial Intelligence Day event, the billionaire presented the humanoid Tesla Bot project, ensuring that in the future physical work will be optional, as there will be robots like his with AI that will take care of heavy work.

I think if somebody is doing something that is useful to the rest of society, I think that's a good thing. It doesn't have to change the world. If you're doing something that has high value to people and frankly even if it's something...if it's just a little game or, you know, the system improvement in photo sharing or something, if it has a small amount of good for a large number of people, I mean I think that's fine. Stuff doesn't need to change the world just to be good. But, you know, in terms of things that I think are most likely to affect the future of humanity, I think AI is probably the single biggest item in the near term that's likely to affect humanity. So it's very important that we have the advent of AI in a good way that is something that if you could look into a crystal ball and see the future, you would like that outcome because it is something that could go wrong and as we've talked about many times. And so we really need to make sure it goes right. I think working on AI and making sure its a great future, that's the most important thing I think right now, the most pressing item. Obviously, anything to do with genetics. If you can actually solve genetic diseases if you can prevent dementia or Alzheimer's or something like that with genetic reprogramming that would be wonderful. So I think this genetics might be the sort of second most important item.
