Tesla and SpaceX chief executive officer Elon Musk is scheduled to visit China by the end of August. The tech CEO will speak at the World Artificial Intelligence Conference from August 29 until August 31 in Shanghai. He will also launch the China-based unit of The Boring Company, which is his very own tunneling startup company.
The latest info about Elon Musk's attendance on the World Artificial Intelligence Conference was reported by local Chinese media outlets. Sina.com reported that Elon Musk will be one of the speakers at the conference along with academic leaders and over 100 experts in their respective industry. The World Artificial Intelligence Conference will also have around 300 exhibitors, and more than 10,000 have already registered to be at the event.
The report added that some of the expected topics to be discussed at the World Artificial Intelligence Conference are forte of Elon Musk. Additionally, the conference will host discussions and talks about artificial intelligence as it is used in technologies like environment-friendly solutions and full self-driving process. New development in artificial intelligence will also be discussed at the conference.
On Twitter, Elon Musk confirmed his attendance at the World Artificial Intelligence Conference. He also revealed that hi trip on the Southeast Asian country would include the launching of The Boring Company in China. The recent announcement is a surprise to the followers of the CEO's tunneling business, especially since the idea of the company being launched in China has not really been discussed previously.
The Boring Company launching in China would be a strategic move for Tesla. So far, China has proven that it is open to the ambitious project of the SpaceX and Tesla CEO. This can be seen in the Southeast Asian country's initiative to exceed the timetable of the construction of Gigafactory 3.

If Elon Musk could get the same level of support the Chinese government extended to Tesla for The Boring Company, it would not be surprising to see the tunneling startup breaking ground massive projects in the country pretty soon. It would also be the greatest irony since The Boring Company has been receiving negative feedback and opposition.
There are endless possibilities that could happen for SpaceX, Tesla, and The Boring Company in China with Elon Musk's upcoming visit. It is possible that the CEO would like to see if the country would be the first-ever to welcome his vision concerning his tunneling startup business.
