Humans must merge with machines


Elon Musk: Humans must merge with machines or become irrelevant in AI age


Billionaire Elon Musk is known for his futuristic ideas and his latest suggestion might just save us from being irrelevant as artificial intelligence (AI) grows more prominent.


The Tesla and SpaceX CEO said on Monday that humans need to merge with machines to become a sort of cyborg.


"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, where he also launched Tesla in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).


"It's mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output."


Musk explained what he meant by saying that computers can communicate at "a trillion bits per second", while humans, whose main communication method is typing with their fingers via a mobile device, can do about 10 bits per second.


In an age when AI threatens to become widespread, humans would be useless, so there's a need to merge with machines, according to Musk.


"Some high bandwidth interface to the brain will be something that helps achieve a symbiosis between human and machine intelligence and maybe solves the control problem and the usefulness problem," Musk explained.


The technologists proposal would see a new layer of a brain able to access information quickly and tap into artificial intelligence. 


It's not the first time Musk has spoken about the need for humans to evolve, but it's a constant theme of his talks on how society can deal with the disruptive threat of AI.


'Very quick' disruption


During his talk, Musk touched upon his fear of "deep AI" which goes beyond driverless cars to what he called "artificial general intelligence".


This he described as AI that is "smarter than the smartest human on earth" and called it a "dangerous situation".


While this might be some way off, the Tesla boss said the more immediate threat is how AI, particularly autonomous cars, which his own firm is developing, will displace jobs. 


He said the disruption to people whose job it is to drive will take place over the next 20 years, after which 12 to 15 percent of the global workforce will be unemployed.


"The most near term impact from a technology standpoint is autonomous cars … That is going to happen much faster than people realize and it's going to be a great convenience," Musk said.


"But there are many people whose jobs are to drive. In fact I think it might be the single largest employer of people ... Driving in various forms. So we need to figure out new roles for what do those people do, but it will be very disruptive and very quick."

Scientists are trying to put a lot of machines inside humans and on the other hand machines are being built that resemble human beings more and more. Ultimately both will become one. Brains attached to machines.

[Sounds like] A new Religion:  Man creates and then merges with its own creation (no where to be "seen", thereafter, eh?)  ^_^
