Musk said the Tesla artificial intelligence/autopilot team would also be at the event, which he described as "super fun."

"Tesla will hold a super fun AI party/hackathon at my house with the Tesla AI/autopilot team in about four weeks," he wrote. "Invitations going out soon."

Musk owns multiple houses in the Los Angeles area, spending around $100 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Despite Tesla investing heavily in AI technology, Musk has long warned about its dangers, even saying that a single firm that develops "god-like super intelligence" might achieve world domination.

"Artificial intelligence isn't necessarily bad, but it will operate outside of human control," he said in September 2018. "It's going to be very tempting to use AI as a weapon. It will be used as a weapon," Musk said. "The on ramp to serious AI will be more humans using it against each other. That will be the danger."

He warned last year that advanced artificial intelligence will be used to manipulate social media, if it hasn't been already.

"If advanced AI (beyond basic bots) hasn’t been applied to manipulate social media, it won’t be long before it is," Musk tweeted in September 2019.

The carmaker recently denied a claim that there is a "sudden acceleration" problem with some of its vehicles.

"We investigate every single incident where the driver alleges to us that their vehicle accelerated contrary to their input, and in every case where we had the vehicle's data, we confirmed that the car operated as designed," the company wrote.
