It's intriguing to see Andreessen express a desire to create 12 Elon Musks, given that Elon is one of the most vocal advocates for AI safety. Elon has consistently expressed concerns about the unchecked development of AI, and he has called for a pause on large-scale AI systems. It would be interesting to see Andreessen address his disagreement with Elon directly, rather than through hand-wavy dismissal of AI existential risk. Of course, sometimes Elon says crazy things, but based on this interview, it certainly looks like Elon has thought more seriously about this issue than Andreessen.
