But here’s the kicker: to Musk, that wouldn’t entirely matter. His overarching goal has always been to replace the fossil-fuel-powered car with an electric one. In that sense, Tesla has always been a means to an end, and ultimately, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one.
For Musk, the central problem of interacting with AI is actually “bandwidth.” You can take in information much more quickly than you put push it out via your voice or your thumbs. Hence, his goal is for this system to allow humans to more quickly communicate with machines directly from their brains.
