Steve Wozniak Criticises Elon Musk

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has criticized billionaire CEO of Tesla and Twitter, Elon Musk, for failing to fulfill the promise to launch self-driving cars. In a recent interview with CNN, Wozniak said he had neither met nor spoken to the Tesla and Twitter boss.

Promise of Self Driving Cars

Musk first promised to introduce a self-driving car by 2016 leading Wozniak to upgrade with $50,000. A model with eight cameras was touted to self-drive at the end of 2017 which Wozniak believed would happen but none of these promises were fulfilled according to him.

AI Gone Wrong

Wozniak believes Tesla is an example of artificial intelligence (AI) “gone wrong” as it could potentially kill people. He said: ADVERTISEMENT “If you want a study of AI gone wrong and taking a lot of claims and trying to kill you every chance it gets — there are 1 million Teslas now driving around — go buy one and see what happens.“

Electric Vehicle Push

The Apple co-founder also praised Musk’s efforts in encouraging the use of electric vehicles despite being critical about his failure in delivering self-driving cars.


Overall, Steve Wozniak has criticised Elon Musk for failing in fulfilling his promise regarding self driving cars that were set years ago while still praising him for pushing electric vehicle use in the market today.
