SpaceX CEO Elon Musk desires to set up a foundation on the Red Planet and also hints that Artificial Intelligence might be the first Martian Resident.
When asked about his thoughts over intelligent machine being first Martian rather than a human, Elon Musk reciprocated: “30%”
Since then it became a riddle to solve how he concluded over this percentage. Meanwhile, people are framing their own hypothesis that how the AI resident could look like, as per the Geek.
The Geek reports added in sequence – “It’s possible that it could be a rover-like bot that explores the planet, or a stationary device that makes observations and conducts experiments without human assistance.”
Presently, a human mission to Mars seems to be absolutely theoretical.
Although the aerospace company and identical scientific organisations all over the world have been alive towards formulating technologies to enable man to venture beyond Earth’s moon, yet it may take a decade or more before the attempt is pursued.
In November 2018, Elon Musk made an assertion about his visit to Mars and said that there is 70 percent chance that he would go to the planet despite a favourable chance of not surviving during the journey or maybe after landing. Assuming that, either because of risk or expenses involved, not many people might be willing to join him for the mission.
Recently, US federal space agency NASA also made their plans certain to return humans to Moon and apply their lunar experience to devise and send astronauts to Red Planet by 2030s. Till then, a human mission to Mars will be a subject of science fiction comprising of aerospace engineering and scientific proposals residing in theories. Not only US but other countries are also keeping their head and hopes high to serve their long-term intentions of sending a human to Mars.
Earlier, many of the times, tech billionaire Elon Musk presented his voice through Twitter over a combination of AI and future ambitions. According to him, AI can be the best or worst thing ever happened for humanity. Considering the negative aspects of accelerating technologies, Musk said that AI if not handled properly, can become risk like North Korea and countries racing for AI superiority may lead to World War 3. On the other hand, responding to certain tweets, he expressed his views on the boons of AI and how AI and robotics will make human life more comfortable and effortless.
