This has no direct bearing on Tesla, but in so much that Tesla is a so-called tech company, it is perhaps interesting to read some of the practical limits of computing.

… essentially , Turing tried to fix his thesis. Computing that is dependent on time domain for certainty or accuracy and one that is required to communicate with the outside world will have limits… it is bit like saying humans themselves have hard limits …computing is only our mirror image…better in narrowly defined ways, worse in others.
