Tesla co-founder: AI will overtake human race
Elon Musk has warned that the singularity is "coming soon". (

Co-founder of Tesla, Elon Musk, has warned that the singularity, the point in time where artificial intelligence (AI) overtakes the human race, is coming soon.

“Good chance they are less interesting and deeper levels are better. So far, even our primitive sims are often more entertaining than reality itself.”

According to, the 80th wealthiest man in the world has not been shy about expressing his theories on the singularity or the fact he believes that human life takes place in a simulation and is not actual reality.

Speaking at last year’s Code Conference in California, the co-founder of Tesla said that life “probably” takes place in a computer game.

He stated: “If you assume any rate of improvement at all, then the games will become indistinguishable from reality, just indistinguishable.

Even if the speed of those advancements dropped by 1,000.

“We are clearly on a trajectory to have games indistinguishable from reality, and there would be billions of there.

“It would seem to follow that the odds that we're in 'base reality' is one in billions.”

The hysterical Twitter encounter ended in the show’s Twitter account dropping a party invitation to American author Ray Kurzweil, who has previously written about the singularity and Steven Hawking.
