Elon Musk: Merge Humans with Machines to Create Cyborgs

Elon Musk: Merge Humans with Machines to Create Cyborgs

Specifically, he spoke of humans eventually merging with machines, like something out of a "Terminator" movie. But that idea has largely existed as a "What If?" possibility, something placed far away from the present tense. He has an answer. This is exactly what the Tesla CEO was warning the world about during his speech at the World Government Summit, which was held in Dubai, CNBC reports. While talking about the future of artificial intelligence, self-driving cars, interstellar travel and more, Musk shared his detailed opinion on, well, aliens.

Space X and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is known for his futuristic visions and we witnessed his crystal-ball predictions for the future at the Word Government Summit in Dubai on Monday (February 13). He said most of this merger will be about how fast the connection between the brain and "the digital version of yourself, particularly output", can be.

Musk made similar comments a year ago at ReCode's Code Conference, emphasizing tech's need to develop a "neural lace" to interface directly with the brain. In contrast, humans can communicate at about 10 bits a second. If the AI has human brains in place for check-and-balance purposes, the likelihood of it taking over the world and enslaving us all is at least a little lower, surely.

Musk said that humans will merge with AI in a cyborg-like machine-human symbiosis that he says is already happening as we become more reliant on our machines and the information they provide.


SpaceX founder Elon Musk has laid out predictions for a near-future where humans live among the stars and a dystopian-like employment crisis hits parts the world, because of advanced robot technology. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. This is the kind of talk that directs towards human evolution and it is not the first time that Musk has suggested this kind of thing. This technology allows Tesla owners to charge their cars within minutes.

Musk has spoken often on his deep seated fear of deep artificial intelligence. "So we need to figure out new roles for what do those people do, but it will be very disruptive and very quick", Musk said.

The main thrust of Musk's argument seems to hinge on the limited bandwidth and processing power of a single human being.

This would also solve the 'control problem, ' he went on to explain, as it could become so widespread that 'anyone who wants it can have it'.
