China will exempt Tesla cars from purchase tax

Interestingly, Ma had opposing view than those of Musk.

And boy, they did not disappoint.

But both Ma and Musk agreed that human mortality is a good thing as each generation brings new ideas to the global challenges humans face. The Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.co-founder espoused a focus on life on Earth and argued that machines will never surpass their makers. "We need to have much more than that", said Ma.

In Tesla's favour, it has been exporting cars to China since 2014 and remains the benchmark that other automakers in China often compare their electric vehicles to when they advertise.

"Most people believe that we have too many people on the planet". During his stay, Musk attended the World Artificial Intelligence Conference in Shanghai and toured the Gigafactory being built nearby. "The biggest issue in 20 years will be population collapse-not explosion, collapse". That's for us. This time, he said "three days a week, four hours a day" in English.

Mr Jack Ma believes artificial intelligence (AI) poses no threat to humanity, but Mr Elon Musk called that "famous last words" as the billionaire tech tycoons faced off yesterday in an occasionally animated debate on futurism in Shanghai.

Earlier in the week, Ma said that amid an escalating trade and technology war between the U.S. and China, both countries needed to make a concerted effort to work together on technology for the world to benefit from the digital era.

While the billionaire entrepreneur was careful to steer clear of the trade war or longer-term geopolitical tensions, he spoke freely on nearly everything else-including the possibility that life as we know it may end abruptly.

Elon Musk further said that humans need to rapidly adapt to keep up with technology and hoped that machines "are nice". "This is the first time in the 4.5 billion-year history of Earth that we'll be able to extend life beyond Earth", he added. We should not take it for granted that consciousness should continue. "I really think China's future looks very impressive".

He likened the coming relationship between people and AI to that of chimpanzees and humans, where people would be incapable of comprehending the actions of an intelligence smarter than themselves. "It'll be much smarter than the smartest human". "I've never in my life, especially in the last two years, when people talk about AI, human beings will be controlled by machines".

"I learned how to push my Model 3 to its limits", said Wang, who writes both enthusiastic and critical blogs about Tesla and occasionally races his vehicle with friends.

It did not all go according to the script.
