Regarding the potential of artificial intelligence, he expressed, “In an optimistic scenario, AI will strive to make you happy. That could turn out quite well.”

He also addressed his social media platform X (formerly Twitter), stating, “Advertisers have the right to associate with content that aligns with their brands. That’s acceptable. What’s not acceptable is insisting on excluding any content they disagree with on the platform.”

Reflecting on his own posts on X, he noted, “I do occasionally undermine myself. If you’re constantly being filtered, you’re not being genuine. It’s best to be authentic.”
