CBR lists 7 of the biggest predictions made by billionaire, Elon Musk for the future of advanced technology such as robot doctors and humans in space.
2. Humans will become Cyborgs
Again on the topic of AI, Elon Musk has made it clear that the necessary enhancements will need to be put in place for humans to keep up with robots and computers, or at least stay relevant.
Speaking at Code in 2016 Elon Musk shared that the only way for humans to even stay slightly relevant in the future was by embedding technologies into our brains and bodies.
During his time on stage, Musk said: “Under any rate of advancement in AI we will be left behind by a lot. The benign situation with ultra-intelligent AI is that we would be so far below in intelligence we’d be like a pet, or a house cat. I don’t love the idea of being a house cat.”
This is where Musk shared his view on neural lace, an electronic brain enhancement tool that is basically embedded in the human brain to give humans’ access to AI.
“Over time I think we will probably see a close merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence,” Musk said.
Musk demonstrated this with the launch of a new start-up company, named Neuralink to focus on the development of a neural lace to embed small electrodes into the brain.
