Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma are set to debate the concept of artificial intelligence at the World AI Conference in Shanghai, China, this week. Experts point out that the appearance could be bad timing for Musk, as the United States imposes on China while at the same time, the communist nation strives to control the future of artificial intelligence.
Bloomberg reports that Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma will be debating at the World AI Conference in Shanghai, China. Musk’s attendance at the event was reportedly finalized quite early on according to event organizer Zhang Hongtao and added that Musk would share more on the development of Tesla’s Shanghai investment with delegates at the conference.
Musk tweeted this month that he’s visiting Shanghai in order to finalize the Chinese location of The Boring Company, his tunnel building side project. Musk’s beleaguered car company, Tesla, also has plans to launch a Chinese manufacturing plant meaning that it will be important that Musk makes a positive impression on Chinese communist authorities. Getting close to a powerful Chinese businessman such as Jack Ma could be extremely beneficial for Musk and his Chinese operations.
