One of the most memorable scenes in the film "Zootopia" pokes fun the stereotype that DMV employees can be…well, pokey, by casting them as sloths. But the joke-loving sloth character Flash has at least one fan at the California Department of Motor Vehicles. None other than Elon Musk spotted a stuffed Flash doll on the desk of a DMV employee that helped him out on Monday, and he posted a photo of the plush novelty to his Instagram account. Perhaps this is the real reason Musk is developing self-driving cars.

Speaking to students from MIT a few months later, Musk expanded on that view and took it one step further, calling AI "our biggest existential threat." But Musk wants to walk the talk. By December 2015 he co-founded the non-profit research company OpenAI in an effort to democratize AI development and advance the technology to humanity's best benefit.
