Elon Musk Says Humans Must Merge With Machines Or Become Irrelevant In The AI Age

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago Science

So Elon Musk says we need to merge with robots and machines or else we're going to become irrelevant and most likely obsolete in the Artificial Intelligence age.

He's probably right. If all my years of watching sci-fi has taught me anything, it's that there's a robot revolution a-brewing, but it's not like we're not in control of it.

"Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence," Musk told an audience at the World Government Summit in Dubai. "It's mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output."

Will someone shut this guy up and focus him on driverless cars and his underground tunnels in LA?

Dude, just focus on making free energy.  No one cares about your wild ideas about the future that no one knows about yet.

Well we really are limited by our Biology.  We simply can't exist in space.  Augmenting our intelligence into replaceable parts that are able to exist in other environments makes sense.
