|Elon Musk has jumped the shark.
While Musk has been very successful at going up against the perceived wisdom, he's now clearly getting delusional. Just read what he said at MIT last week:
Musk: I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I had to guess at what our biggest existential threat is, it’s probably that. So we need to be very careful with artificial intelligence.When did he first show signs of delusion? We date it to the gigafactory. Betting $5 billion on a decade-old technology like Lithium-Ion batteries is a very risky bet—and will end up losing investors much money. New battery technology will make the gigafactory obsolete even before it opens.
Investors pay heed: Jumping the shark is going to lose lots of investment cash for Musk.
