CEO of Tesla and Space X Elon Musk Is now set to become the CEO of Neuralink with his latest goal to connect human brains with computers.
The billionaire entrepreneur has dedicated his recent years to putting forth outlandish scientific projects such as his aims to make an intergalactic human colonial species. And it looks like he’s got no intentions of slowing down in his attempts to turn Sci-Fi dreams into reality. Musk’s most recent venture Neuralink, promises to make human telepathy possible in just a few short years. The tech billionaire tweeted, ‘if somebody doesn’t do it, then I think I should do it’.
Despite all of this, Musk has fears about the future of AI and believes it could be humanity’s downfall and could ultimately lead to the extinction of our race. Musk recently followed up these thoughts at the world government summit claiming however that creating human cyborgs would actually solve part of the problem. Musk believes that the reason behind our possible extinction could be that as AI becomes more intelligent and is able to perform various tasks and jobs, humans will become less relevant. Thus, Musk expressed, ‘people need to become cyborgs to be relevant in a future dominated by AI, a merger of biological intelligence and machine intelligence’.
