“It’s going to encourage other countries and companies to raise their sights and say we can do something bigger and better which is great.”
Elon Musk is practicing what he had preached- building something that can bring a revolutionary change in the world.
What if you turn into a Cyborg someday? That’s what Elon Musk is planning to do. While in an hour-long live interview, Elon Musk declared: “I think we’ll have something interesting to announce in a few months … that’s better than anyone thinks is possible,” Musk said, “Best case scenario, we effectively merge with AI.”
Elon Musk’s short teaser about his future plans has encouraged rumors to surface aboard:
“Neuralink is building a technology that would sync your mind to a computer turning you into a Cyborg.”
Musk believes our addiction to phones and tablets have already turned us into a quarter Cyborg.
Musk felt that he is giving humanity a much better chance against the AIs, as he continued: “The merge scenario with AI is the one that seems like probably the best. If you can’t beat it, join it. If your biological self-dies, you can upload into a new unit. Literally,”
Musk also said, “How much smarter are you with a phone or computer or without? You’re vastly smarter; actually, you can answer any question pretty much instantly. You can remember flawlessly. Your phone can remember videos [and] pictures perfectly. Your phone is already an extension of you. You’re already a Cyborg. Most people don’t realize you’re already a Cyborg. It’s just that the data rate … it’s slow, very slow. It’s like a tiny straw of information flow between your biological self and your digital self. We need to make that tiny straw like a giant river, a huge, high-bandwidth interface.”
The ambition of Neuralink is to sync your brain with AI tech. Musk says they have an announcement on that front coming in a next few months. If Neuralink succeeds in its endeavors Musk will definitely take humanity to the next stage of the universe where humans will no longer be made of blood or flesh instead they will become computerized Cyborg.
