Read Excerpts:

Q: Are you looking forward to on-ground fashion events and the energy that comes with physical shows and appearances?

A: I am I mean, I think that it’s been a while that we’ve all been at home and the livelihood of artisans, designers make-up artist, hairdressers has suffered. Everyone’s looking forward to being backed and last but not least me; there’s a different energy, of course.

Q: The outfit chosen for you at the show, how does it complement your style?

A: I really think that the outfit complimented my body type because it sort of showed off my arms which are very toned and strong. I’ve been working on them. So I’m happy that they chose, an off-shoulder outfit. The beautiful train, added length which I require a little bit off. So, I think it was very feminine, and I think the silhouette was a good one for me.

Q: What are your travel essentials?

A: Wetwipes, sanitiser, spare masks and water. I would say a book but I haven’t read a book since I’ve become a mother. I would say iPad, cotton wool for ears, and a lollipop.

Q: A book, a movie, the gym, or a night out. What is your perfect way to unwind?

A: If you really work out some point in the day, it just helps you to wind down. So I really believe in physical exercise. Well, I love massages and I really enjoy good conversations with good friends.

Q: How do you support sustainable fashion?

A: One should reuse their clothes. You don’t need to buy new clothes, all the time. We share clothes, among friends with similar body types, all the time, whether it’s children’s clothes as well as my clothes. Recycle, you know, if a pair of jeans have started to fray, cut them into shorts, you can also T-Shirts in a number of different ways. So you can recycle, use materials that are good for the planet, don’t use plastic and things like this.

Q: What is an experience in your life that you’re waiting to have?

A: A goodnight sleep will be great.

San Francisco, Dec 6 | Musk hiring engineers to solve problems that affects people’s lives. Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk on Monday tweeted that he is hiring Artificial Intelligence (AI) engineers who are passionate about solving day-to-day problems through AI.

“As always, Tesla is looking for hardcore AI engineers who care about solving problems that directly affect people’s lives in a major way,” Musk tweeted along with a link to apply for the job.

Interested candidates can apply by filling in fields like name, email, exceptional work done in software, hardware or AI, dropping their resume in the PDF format and hitting the Apply option.

As per the website, Tesla’s AI and Autopilot unit develops and deploys autonomy at scale in vehicles, robots and more.

“We believe that an approach based on advanced for vision and planning, supported by efficient use of inference hardware, is the only way to achieve a general solution for full self-driving and beyond,” the website read.

In a 2014 interview, Musk said he looked for “evidence of exceptional ability” in a potential employee, rather than a degree from a prestigious university.

“There is no need even to have a college degree at all, or even high school,” Musk said during an interview with the German automotive publication Auto Bild about his hiring preferences more broadly.

“If somebody graduated from a great university, that may be an indication that they will be capable of great things, but it’s not necessarily the case. If you look at, say, people like Bill Gates or Larry Ellison, Steve Jobs, these guys didna¿t graduate from college, but if you had a chance to hire them, of course that would be a good idea.”
