Despite hundreds of thousands of Cybertruck pre-orders, Elon Musk told Automotive News that Tesla will build a "normal truck, no problem" if people don't buy the unique design. An exact number or pre-orders isn't known. Musk has previously said Tesla had crossed 200,000 pre-orders since the Cybertruck was revealed in November, but a Wedbush analyst pegged the number closer to 650,000. Musk said a more conventional pickup was Tesla's "fallback strategy." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories Tesla is happy to build a "normal" pickup truck if the Cybertruck doesn't take off, Elon Musk said in a new interview with Automotive News.  Tesla's Cybertruck is a dramatic design departure from the rest of the pickup truck market. With its stainless steel exterior and striking geometric form, it would be more at home in an episode of "Westworld" than a Kenny Chesney music video. But that's the point, Musk says, who said he wanted to create something that looked like it was from a sci-fi movie. Tesla didn't perform any consumer research on the truck's Sci-Fi inspired design, Musk said. The move stands in stark contrast from rest of the pickup-truck market, where designs are extensively tested with potential buyers.   But if people find the truck too unusual and aren't willing to pay for it, he's open to the idea of a more conventional-looking Tesla truck. Musk said he realized the Cybertruck could be "a complete failure," but the company has a back-up plan. "But I wasn't super worried about that because if it turns out nobody wants to buy a weird-looking truck, we'll build a normal truck, no problem." Musk said a more conventional pickup was Tesla's "fallback strategy." But if the reservations are any indication of how the Cybertruck will sell, Musk may not need to make any changes.  The Cybertruck has reached at least 250,000 reservations, according to one of Musk's tweets in November. Since then, some analysts estimate the number to be as high as 650,000, according to Wedbush Securities. However, these high numbers have an important caveat: consumers can reserve a Cybertruck for the low price of $100, and their deposit is refundable. Those laying down a hundred bucks on a whim may not necessarily end up paying the $39,000 to $77,000 price tag when the Cybertruck becomes available. It will not be sold globally, Musk told Automotive News. Pickup trucks dominate the U.S. car market. This year, pickup trucks outsold sedans for the first time, according to Bloomberg. Steady sales of the F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado are crucial to Ford's and GM's revenue.  Tesla is still aiming to launch the Cybertruck next year, Musk said.

We’re here to guide you through the coronavirus pandemic. Sign up to the Life newsletter for daily tips, advice, how-tos and escapism.Following a pandemic that has impacted the world, young people have struggled to be heard on issues that matter to them.With the so-called ‘generation lockdown’ determined to share their views, poet Caleb Femi has given them a voice by teaming up with youth organisation the National Citizen Service to produce a spoken word piece and short film.Femi crowdsourced young people’s hopes about their futures, post-lockdown, and used these soundbites to create a spoken word piece: Life After Lockdown. He directed a short film for it, shown above, featuring young people reading out his piece to bring their thoughts to life. “The submissions we got from young people were interwoven to highlight their truths, their resilience and an imagination that can envision and create a new tomorrow,” he said. “They acknowledge the past, but are resolute in changing a shared future.”Femi said he was met with “stock-taking questions” from young people when hearing from them, such as: who am I? What impact do I have on those around me? What do I contribute to my community? And – perhaps the most important question of all – what does life after the lockdown look like?Related... How Likely Is A Second Wave – And Can It Be Prevented? Ellie, 17, from Worcester, is one of the young people who features in the film.Speaking separately about her lockdown experience, she said it had been hard being stuck in the same house for weeks, but it taught her to be grateful for those around her. “I hope we can continue supporting each other, as well as those who are doing an amazing job keeping this country together,” she said. “I also hope we continue sharing the positive voices of young people with the rest of society, especially since it’s our future that will be mostly impacted as a result of Covid-19, yet we’re the ones who are often forgotten.”Megan, 16, from Huddersfield, said lockdown had taught more about her resilience. “It’s only during lockdown that I found how extremely patient I am and actually learnt to let go of some of my worries,” she said. Related... 'I Got The Last Flight To Zurich': We’re Brits Who Spent Lockdown Abroad While Ithill, 15, from Essex, said she had discovered a new love of baking. “If we didn’t have lockdown, I wouldn’t have never picked up a measuring bowl,” she said.Femi believes as well as listening to experts, society could learn a lot from young people. “After the devastation of Covid-19, it’s never been more important for us to listen to them,” he added. “They are bold and charged with optimism, resilience, empathy and imagination. “Gone are the days where ‘children’ should be seen and not heard. No, not when they have innovative ideas, when they see things the older generations cannot. Let us listen to them as we plan for a better future for all of us.”‘Life After Lockdown’ is part of the wider NCS ‘No We Can’ campaign, which aims to give a voice to a generation ready to speak their mind, inciting independence and helping them turn a lifetime of being told they are too young into a collective voice that tells the world what they can achieve.Related...

When you’ve exhausted the classic gifts like socks and smellies, buying presents for your dad can be tricky. But even when we’re out of inspiration, we can honestly say we’ve never considered gifting him a ball trimmer instead. The same cannot be said, however, for Cruz Beckham. The Beckhams’ youngest son, 15, bought dad David a special gift to smoothen those famous ‘golden balls’. David posted a snap of a Balls trimmer on his Instagram Stories, along with the caption: “Things my son buys all us Beckham boys. Thanks @CruzBeckham.”On their website, the Balls brand promises their products deliver “beautiful, shining balls”, but thankfully David stopped short of telling us if his gift lived up to its reputation. In non-pubic-hair Beckham news, the family recently celebrated the engagement of Brooklyn’s engagement to girlfriend Nicola Peltz. Victoria and David’s eldest son announced the news in a post on Instagram earlier this month. He revealed he’d popped the question to the US actor and heiress two weeks prior, sharing a photo along with the caption: “I am the luckiest man in the world. I promise to be the best husband and the best daddy one day. I love you baby.”READ MORE: Brooklyn Beckham And Girlfriend Nicola Peltz Announce Engagement David And Victoria: A Love Story The Beckhams Treat Fans To Some Amazing Candid Family Photos In Honour Of Wedding Anniversary

A list of the 20 most valuable venture-backed companies in artificial intelligence boasts a combined valuation of some $120 billion. Most of the list are privately-held startups; some of them — namely Waymo and Uber Advanced Technology Group — are subsidiaries of much larger companies, but that are said to be eyeing IPOs of their own. Investment remains robust despite an uncertain economy, a reflection of the great potential of AI innovation, analysts say.  Seven of the 20 make autonomous car technology, a challenging field that will require time to mature.  Other technologies on the list include AI applications to farming, data management, hiring, and writing.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. In an uncertain economy where valuations are slipping, the 20 highest-valued venture-backed companies in artificial intelligence combined are worth about a staggering $120 billion, according to PitchBook, in a reflection of the promising innovation of the sector. To put it in perspective, these 20 young companies — many that have yet to produce actual products — are worth more than Ford, American Express, and US Steel combined.  Top startups also continue to close major fundraising rounds and command multi-billion valuations for technology ranging from automation tools to self-driving cars. And despite the economic headwinds caused by the coronavirus pandemic, expert studies and venture capitalists say the market remains steady.  "All the fundamental parts of the innovation cycle that have AI broadly employed in it are somewhat untouched by a COVID-like pandemic scenario," said Rohit Sharma, a partner at early stage VC firm True Ventures. "We don't really see a slowdown or any kind of impact."  But there are obstacles ahead for even the most valuable startups. Seven of the 20 top, according to data provided by PitchBook, are builders of self-driving car technology, which experts say is a sector that demands capital and patience — two things that could be in shorter supply in a jittery recession.  "A lot of the business case assumptions and model assumptions, historically, have started to fall apart as people really started to realize just how challenging this robo-taxi problem really is," Austin Russell, CEO of Luminar, told Business Insider's Troy Wolverton recently.  Most of the companies on this list are relatively small, independently-held startups. Notably, however, a few of the companies on PitchBook's list are independent subsidiaries of larger organizations — at the top of the list is Waymo, which began as Google's self-driving car unit, and is now reportedly mulling a public offering at some point in the future after raising venture cash all its own. Joining Waymo is Uber's own autonomous vehicle division – a separate entity from the ride-sharing firm with its own CEO and IPO possibilities. And Zoox may be the poster child for how challenging the market can be. Amazon reportedly bought the firm for far less than its previous valuation.  Beyond the parking lot of autonomous cars are a variety of interesting companies, all using the tech in different ways. The one thing they have in common, however, is they are backed by wealth many other of tech would  envy. Big-data company Palantir is beginning the process to go public. Other standouts on the list include AI farming startup Indigo Ag, hiring firm Checkr, and AI writing company Grammarly.  All valuation data is from PitchBook. All companies asked to verify valuation, and where they did it is noted.  Business Insider unpacked the top 20 most valuable, VC-backed AI companies below:Waymo: $30.75 billion CEO: John Krafcik Headquarters: Mountain View, California Total funding raised: $3 billion  Last funding round: The company raised $3 billion of venture funding in a deal led by Silver Lake Management, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Mubadala Investment Company in May. Valuation: $30.75 billion  Waymo is a self-driving car company that uses integrated sensors and artificial intelligence to detect pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles and road workers, enabling users to travel on-demand in autonomous vehicles. In May, Waymo raised roughly $750 million, expanding the size of its first external investment round to $3 billion. Until last spring, Waymo had been funded entirely by Google and its corporate parent, Alphabet. Palantir Technologies: $20.33 billion CEO: Alex Karp Headquarters: Palo Alto, California Total funding raised: $3.35 billion Last funding round: The company received $549.73 million of financing from Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Holdings on July 1. Valuation: $20.33 billion Palantir makes a data analysis platform that integrates, visualizes, secures and sifts through information. The company helps human experts evaluate data at scale through machine-assisted analysis. Some of that data sifting has led to controversy. Activists have protested Palantir for taking big government contracts to work with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement to fight undocumented immigration. Palantir's creators have in turn criticized tech companies that don't work with the US government. The company has confidentially filed a draft version of the paperwork for a public listing of its stock. The move sets Palantir up for what could be the highest-profile market debut of the year, after the coronavirus pandemic effectively froze the market for some of the most anticipated IPOs. Uber Advanced Technologies Group: $7.25 billion CEO: Eric Meyhofer Headquarters: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Total funding raised: $1 billion Valuation: $7.25 billion (Verified by company.) Last funding round: The company raised $1 billion of venture funding from Toyota Motor, Denso and SoftBank Investment Advisers in April of 2019.  Uber Advanced Technologies Group – a separate entity from its parent company Uber – develops car technology for self-driving cars. The company's system uses various sensors and cameras to detect and analyze driving scenarios, enabling clients to create self-driving cars that reduce human error. Self-driving is notoriously expense to develop, but autonomy is also key to Uber's pitch to investors. The company has revealed that paying drivers is among its top expenses — removing them from the equation could help Uber reach profitability.   UiPath: $7.1 billion CEO: Daniel Dines Headquarters: New York Total funding: $977.23 million Valuation: $7.1 billion Last funding round: The company raised $568 million through the combination of Series D-1 and Series D-2 venture funding in a deal led by Coatue Management in April of 2019. UiPath makes robotic automation software that performs tedious and redundant tasks. The company says it can help companies adapt to new needs with a configurable software platform that controls robotic machinery. The coronavirus pandemic could accelerate UiPath's plans to go public, CEO Danile Dines has said, predicting his firm "will have one of the biggest IPOs of 2021." Automation Anywhere: $6.8 billion CEO: Mihir Shukla Headquarters: San Jose, California Total funding: $840 million Valuation: $6.8 billion  Last funding round: The company raised $290 million of Series B venture funding in a deal led by Salesforce Ventures in November of 2019. Automation Anywhere makes robotic process automation (RPA) software to augment the human workforce by automating repetitive business processes. The company's solution provides a platform for building and executing software bots powered by artificial intelligence, which the company says reduces costs and programming errors. The firm says stiff competition from Microsoft has forced it to invest more in research and development, and last spring it announced 100 new R&D open positions.    Databricks: $6.2 billion CEO: Ali Ghodsi Headquarters: San Francisco Total funding: $897.36 million Valuation: $6.2 billion (Verified by company.)  Last funding round: The company raised $400 million of Series F venture funding in a deal led by Andreessen Horowitz in October. Databricks makes an analytics platform that simplifies evaluation of big data. The company's cloud and machine learning platform unifies data science, engineering and business, enabling data science teams to work faster and more securely. Databricks, which rolled out a new strategy last month, has a stockpile of more than $500 million to ride through the recession to an IPO thanks to disaster preparedness by its cautious CEO.   Samsara: $5.4 billion CEO: Sanjit Biswas Headquarters: San Francisco  Total funding: $930 million  Valuation: $5.4 billion  Last funding round: The company raised $700 million of Series F venture funding from Dragoneer Investment Group, Warburg Pincus and General Atlantic in May. Samsara makes Internet of Things sensors and cameras designed to increase efficiency, safety and sustainability. The company's suite of technology works in an integrated, real-time platform, enabling businesses to improve the safety and quality of business operations. Last year Samsara said it more than doubled its customer base to 10,000, and expanded into 10 new countries, while growing revenue at over 200% annually. Tempus Labs: $5 billion CEO: Eric Lefkofsky Headquarters: Chicago Total funding: $620 million  Valuation: $5 billion  Last funding round: The company closed on $100 million of Series G venture funding from Novo Holdings, New Enterprise Associates and Baillie Gifford in March. Tempus Labs makes a healthcare data-analytics platform that helps physicians to deliver personalized care for patients through an interactive analytical and machine learning platform. Since launching in 2015, the oncology-focused startup has stocked up a bank of clinical data and architected a system that uses machine learning, genomic sequencing, and other AI tech to enhance clinician understanding of patients' cancer and tailor effective treatments.  Indigo Ag: $3.45 billion CEO: David Perry Headquarters: Boston Total funding: $1.12 billion  Valuation: $3.45 billion  Last funding round: The company raised $500 million of Series F venture funding through a combination of debt and equity in June.   Indigo Ag provides agricultural services to predict which microbes are most beneficial to the health of crops and supply seed coatings that enable farmers to reduce risk and increase profitability. The fast-growing firm has picked up speed during the COVID-19 pandemic, causing some analysts to predict acquisition or an initial public offering in the near future.    C3.ai: $3.3 billion CEO: Tom Siebel Headquarters: Redwood City, California Total funding: $355.74 million Valuation: $3.3 billion  Last funding round: The company raised an estimated $50 million of Series H venture funding from BlackRock in September. C3.ai's cloud software uses machine learning to expedite the integration and analysis of enterprise data to provide companies with predictive maintenance, fraud detection, and energy management to improve operations. CEO Tom Siebel recently said his hot AI startup did $160 million in revenue last year, but that it won't go public until the economy is fully recovered.   Aurora: $3.07 billion CEO: Chris Urmson Headquarters: Palo Alto, California Total funding: $765.6 million  Valuation: $3.07 billion Last funding round: The company raised $69.51 million of Series B1 venture funding from Hyundai, Kia Motors and Millennium Technology Value Partners in September of 2019. Aurora makes an autonomous car technology that uses advanced machine learning software and hardware to power self-driving cars. Founded in 2017 by veterans of Google, Tesla, and Uber's self-driving car projects, the startup plans to act as a supplier to automotive, tech, or logistics companies.   Pony.ai: $3 billion CEO: James Peng Headquarters: Fremont, California Total funding: $726 million  Valuation: $3 billion Last funding round: The company raised $462 million of Series B venture funding in a deal led by Toyota Motor in February. Pony makes an autonomous driving technology intended for the manufacturing of automated vehicles. The company's platform takes advantage of artificial intelligence and algorithms to accurately perceive the vehicle's surroundings in order to predict the surrounding drivers' actions and maneuver accordingly.   Convoy: $2.75 billion CEO: Dan Lewis Headquarters: Seattle  Total funding: $668 million  Valuation: $2.75 billion  Last funding round: The company raised $400 million of Series D venture funding in a deal led by Generation Investment Management and T. Rowe Price in November. Convoy makes an efficient digital freight network that connects shippers and carriers. The company's technology and data help solve the problem of waste and inefficiency in the trucking industry by matching trucking companies with shippers that need to move freight. The Jeff Bezos-backed trucking startup also raised money from Al Gore's fund in an effort to dominate the digital-freight market. Nuro: $2.7 billion CEO: Jiajun Zhu Headquarters: Mountain View, California  Total funding: $1.03 billion  Valuation: $2.7 billion   Last funding round: The company raised $940 million of Series B venture funding from SoftBank Investment Advisers in February of 2019. Nuro makes a suite of robotics that include autonomous vehicle programs that help to transport goods quickly, safely and affordably. The delivery startup was the first self-driving vehicle company to get permission from the US government to ditch side mirrors and windshields on its delivery vehicles – which experts say could be a precedent for streamlining designs due to greater trust in vehicle safety.    SambaNova Systems: $2.5 billion CEO: Rodrigo Liang Headquarters: Palo Alto, California  Total funding: $460.6 million  Valuation: $2.5 billion  Last funding round: The company raised $250 million in a Series C round of venture funding in a deal led by BlackRock in February. SambaNova Systems makes an advanced systems platform and hardware designed to power machine learning and data analytics, enabling manufacturers with AI-powered hardware to create faster and more efficient algorithms. The tech is based on the research of its two former Stanford professor cofounders.

The oxygen in the planet’s atmosphere seems to rise every spring and summer and fall during autumn and winter, and scientists have no idea why.The startling discovery was made after the team analysed data from the Gale Crater taken by the Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument, a microwave oven sized box that sits within NASA’s Curiosity Rover.The robot cart has been exploring the Red Planet since 2012, allowing researchers to monitor how the concentration of gases fluctuate with the seasons for the first time.SAM confirmed the chemical composition of the Martian atmosphere: it contains 95 per cent carbon dioxide, 2.6 per cent nitrogen, 1.9 per cent argon, 0.16 per cent oxygen, and 0.06 per cent carbon monoxide, by volume.Scientists expected the other gases to follow a similar pattern, rising and falling according to the amount of carbon dioxide in the air.The concentration of nitrogen and argon followed suit, but for oxygen it varied wildly.
