They discussed the significance of innovation for a sustainable future at the meeting. "Speaking of the risk of AI, I'm not saying it is beyond human imagination.

Musk claims that he is not opposed to the development of AI. "I think we should be particularly careful; it may take more time to develop AI. Our direction is right, but we cannot rush, we'd better not enter into an unknown field," he added. Gates agreed with Musk. "Elon has invested in the development of AI, which is very good," he said. When answering a question about the future prospects of unmanned technology utilized in auto industry by Li, Musk said he believes that driverless cars need a big industrial base, which is required for the development of the automotive industry over a long period of time.
