Elon Musk says we need universal basic income because ‘in the future, physical work will be a choice’

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is stepping behind the universal basic income movement because of the potential rise of robots — in fact, he’s working on one himself.

During a Thursday presentation on artificial intelligence (AI) hosted by Tesla, Musk said he is working on creating a “Tesla Bot,” or a robot that would do “dangerous, repetitive, and boring tasks” so humans don’t have to. But Musk recognized that the creation of this robot might take the place of jobs that people are currently getting paid for, which is why he said a guaranteed income will likely be necessary in the future.
