Watching TV 20 years ago: Don’t get too close, it’s bad for your eyesight! Metaverse 20 years later: put the screen directly in front of your eyes!
Recently, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, billionaire Elon Musk, was a bit busy (on the show).
Laughed! What is Metaverse
In an interview with “The Babylon Bee”, when asked about the metaverse, Musk smiled.
“I don’t know if I believe in the Metaverse, although people often talk to me about it.”
In addition, Musk also said, “I don’t believe people will abandon the physical world and replace it with a virtual world, especially if there is a screen on their face.”
“You know, when I was growing up, I always said, “Don’t be too close to the TV, it’s bad for your eyesight.” But now the TV is placed directly in front of the eyes, literally. Um… it does something for you. Is it good?”
Musk bluntly said that sticking the screen to his face for a long time is ridiculous: “Who would tie a “damn” screen to his face all day long.”
When talking about VR glasses, Musk said that when he plays first-person games on a computer or on a console, he feels good, but it is very strange that as soon as he wears VR glasses, motion sickness is committed.
However, what Musk said there is no “convincing scenario” for the Metaverse. Is the “Metaverse” unconvincing, or is the method of “entering and using” the Metaverse convincing?
When you finish reading it, you will find that Musk seems to be talking more about “VR glasses”.
Perhaps, “I don’t believe in Metaverse very much, because no one wants to tie the screen to his face all day.” This sentence is only half of the sentence, but there is actually a second half sentence: “Unless you use a brain-computer interface to enter.” .
Obviously, for Musk, his own Neuralink brain-computer interface is a better solution: “In the long run, a mature Neuralink can let you fully enter virtual reality.”
Although in the interview, Musk said that he “does not understand” Metaverse.
But netizen Moye said that such a person who is motivated to go to Mars, invest heavily in brain-computer interface research, and repeatedly harvest left and right on the NFT, must have a clear mind on the matter of the Metaverse.
Perhaps the sea of stars and virtual reality are not contradictory; perhaps, cyberpunk is the future. However, whether this matter is good or bad depends on where you are.
chicken soup? 5 tips for success
In the “Lex Fridman” podcast, Elon Musk listed some suggestions for young people who want to succeed in life.
Don’t try to be a leader
Musk believes that young people should not try to become leaders in order to become leaders.
“Many times, the people who become leaders are those who don’t want to be leaders.”
the people you want as leaders are the people who don’t want to be leaders
This passage is a bit confusing to read, and I can only rely on everyone to read it carefully.
Be a useful person
Closer to home, Musk suggested that young people should “strive to be useful people.”
“Doing things that are useful to your companions and to the world. Of course, being a useful person is difficult, very difficult.”
contribute to the society
In addition, a person’s contribution should exceed their consumption.
“Try to make a positive net contribution to society. This is a goal worth striving for.”
Musk said that he “very respects those who work honestly every day.”
Reading books and ingesting information
“I will encourage people to read a lot of books,” he said. “Try to get as much information as possible and try to develop good common sense so that you have at least a general understanding of the field of knowledge.”
And Musk himself read the encyclopedia as a child.
Talk to people
The last piece of advice is that young people should talk to others more.
“Talk to people from different industries, different industries, different professions and skills, and learn as much as possible.”
Some “advanced” questions
Of course, Musk also talked about a lot of views on how to manage the training and reasoning of neural networks, such as the “vector space” repeatedly mentioned.
Instead of using “multi-head prediction network” (hydranet), there are some new architectures.
Very focused on extensive code written in C/C++ to reduce inference time, especially on devices.
The risk of “jitter”-the volatility of inference time, and how this affects the robustness of the entire system.
Retrain the network based on original image data instead of “processed image data”.
The new version of the network will rely on multilayer neural networks, rather than some “heuristics.”
However, apart from the question of whether or not to go through the ADC for “retraining with “raw” image data”, Reddit basically complains about Musk.
“Every time Musk talks about AI, either Tesla has bad news to release, or the autonomous driving team is about to hire people.”
