I lost respect for Jack Ma. His level of thinking about Mars and the AI is very limited. He several times uses the word “Alibaba intelligence” To AI. He asked Elon Musk “Why you are going to Mars when we already have a lot of problems to be solved here” he is not a tech guy but remember you don’t need to be a tech guy to find out the future perspective of Artificial intelligence and why humans need to be multi-planetary.

In simple terms, I find out that Jack Ma is more concerned over the Present state while Elon Musk thinks about the humanity of the future. One instant, Jack Ma said “A Human can’t make a machine that is smarter than him, so we don’t need to worry about the Artificial Intelligence stealing our Jobs” really, did you never use a Calculator or an ATM, ATM works faster and effective than a human cashier. As an Engineer, I am telling you this “AI Will definitely take over the jobs where there is a repetition, like turning on and off any system or moving apart from one fixed location to another. Only those people will have jobs that have technical skills.

Ma: I never in my life say human beings will be controlled by machines, it’s impossible…Human beings can never create another thing that is smarter than human beings.

Musk: I very much disagree with that. The biggest mistake I see people making is to assume they’re smart.

Jack Ma is not really interested in Mars, great. For those people who think that…
