The Tesla boss fears for the future of the human race, and is particularly concerned that human intelligence could eventually be overwhelmed by digital intelligence.

Walter Isaacson – who has written a new biography about the billionaire businessman – said: "The amount of human intelligence, he noted, was levelling off because people were not having enough children."

Elon, 52 – who is one of the richest men in the world – has also expressed some concern about the potential influence of digital intelligence.

Walter added: "Meanwhile, the amount of computer intelligence was going up exponentially, like Moore’s law on steroids. At some point, biological brainpower would be dwarfed by digital brainpower."
