Elon Musk's mixed message

Elon Musk delivered a mixed bag to America's governors on Saturday — telling them both that their cars will all drive themselves within a decade and that they should be worried about artificial intelligence.

Another mixed message: Musk lectured against excessive regulation in general, but added that he wanted more regulation when it comes to artificial intelligence.

Relationship with Trump: I managed to get in a question, asking Musk what it was that led him to engage with, then disengage from, President Trump. "It was worth trying," he said.
