Elon Musk is someone who is known well for his eclectic interests, bold claims and the ability to deliver on those claims. Musk is the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, and also the founder/co-founder of The Boring Company, Neuralink and OpenAI. With his hands in numerous honey jars, it’s difficult to tell what Musk is up to. Last week, he made a bunch of new announcements, some of which again fall in the bold claims category and are bordering on sci-fi.

Elon Musk, in an earnings call last week, said that he is already testing an updated version of Tesla’s Autopilot software on his commute to work in Los Angeles.
