Just when you think technology can’t get any better or worse depending on where you stand on the topic, CEO of Tesla Motors and Space X Elon Musk has put forth his latest business endeavor. Nerulink is being privately funded by Musk with hopes that it will successfully be able to implant a series of electrodes into the human brain which will allow a wireless link to computers. Your thoughts will be able to be uploaded and downloaded as you wish. The Human brain will be linked to the beast. The exact details on when and how this project will launch is suggested to be released based off of a tweet he sent last evening.
@elonmusk Long Neuralink piece coming out on @waitbutwhy in about aweek. Difficult to dedicate the time, but existential risk is too high not to. March 27th 2017
This also explains some of his most recent statements that made me question the meaning.
Humans must merge with machines or become irrelevant in AI age- Elon Musk
This is the reality that were living in. A reality that is getting stranger by the minute. I think this could turn very bad very quickly. I personally won’t be one person linking my brain to any device. As far as I’m concerned its working the way it’s designed to just fine. We are all just going to have to sit back and see what Elon Musk does with this technology.
