"Technology isn’t good or bad. There are upsides like nuclear power and downsides like nuclear bombs. Technology is what we make of it. There’s a chance that AI might kill us all, but what we know is that if you’re on the other side of technology, you lose. Betting on technology is always the correct bet." - George Hotz

"Slavery did not end because everyone became moral. The reason slavery ended is because we had an industrial revolution that made man’s muscles obsolete. For the last 150 years, the economy has been based on man’s mind. Capitalism, it turns out, works better when people are chasing a carrot rather than being hit with a stick. We’re on the brink of another industrial revolution now. The entire Internet at the moment has about 10 brains’ worth of computing power, but that won’t always be the case. “The truth is that work as we know it in its modern form has not been around that long, and I kind of want to use AI to abolish it. I want to take everyone’s jobs. Most people would be happy with that, especially the ones who don’t like their jobs. Let’s free them of mental tedium and push that to machines. In the next 10 years, you’ll see a big segment of the human labor force fall away. In 25 years, AI will be able to do almost everything a human can do. The last people with jobs will be AI programmers." - George Hotz

"I'm not going to say whether I think I'm good or not, I'll leave it to the world to decide. If I ship a lot of products, if I make a lot of money, if I build something really awesome, then I guess I was a good CEO. If I don't, I guess I wasn't." - George Hotz

"Mobileye's, as far as chipmakers go, they have one of the lowest r&d-to-revenue ratios of any chipmaker. That doesn't say that they're a company that wants to push the future forward. They're actually a company that wants to work with regulators to enshrine the status quo. So that's not a company that's going to bring out self-driving cars. Self-driving cars are an incredibly hard technical challenge, and anyone who's promising you this 'Level 4, no-steering wheel kind of stuff' is flat out lying like they just have nothing." - George Hotz

"To fully solve driving is in some ways to solve human intelligence. What you want to do in order to drive safely is predict what every driver around you is going to do. Predicting is in some ways being. If you could predict where Gary Kasparov would move in chess, you could be just as good as a chess player as him." - George Hotz
