It is known that Elon musk plans to create a company that will deal with the merger of brain and computer (Yes), will be announced on Monday, April 17, in a giant article on the website Wait But Why. Will the presentation Tim urban, the infamous "chronicler" Elon musk. For example, he was told .
A Few weeks ago that Elon Musk has supported the project to create a company that will develop brain-computer interface that will allow people to keep up with the advances of machine intelligence. The company Neuralink is now at an early stage of development. So we about it know practically nothing.
However, we are not so ignorant. We know some things. For example, we know that the ultimate goal of the company is development of a device (or rather, brain-computer interface), which can be implanted in the brain to complement (read: improve) the human intellect. It will help us to store memories externally, to learn new skills and languages in a matter of seconds, and also to prevent diseases like Alzheimer's. Of course, this work will take time. But Mak hopes to accelerate this development in the course of their work.
Soon after they became known to the first details, Musk confirmed his plan in a tweet (actually, he loves that stuff — announcements of important events and key details using short messages). In the same tweet he also promised that on Wait But Why in April will reveal more details.
Monday's article by Tim urban will be released on the website and we will try to bring it to you.
Are we Ready?
If you did not know, Musk is not the only one who cares about the future of humanity. Given the speed at which accelerates the study of artificial intelligence, concerns seem justified. Like Musk, the founder of the Kernal Brian Johnson is currently working on a neuroprosthesis that can mimic, restore, and improve human cognitive function.
"the Ability to systematically and intelligently to work with your neural code is the most consistent and urgent opportunity in the modern world. All we are, what we do, this is the result of our progress," explained Johnson in an interview with Futurism.
It is Noteworthy that while achievements such as those developed by a Johnson and Musk, can allow us to merge with machines, they also can allow us literally to program (or reprogram) our neural code that would allow us to be transformed in a way hard to imagine.
In Short, we could change our brain and our cognitive abilities and become other people. The experts are ready. The question is, are we ready, people?
What comes to mind when you hear "artificial intelligence"? Educated several generations of Hollywood movies, we often think about "evil robots and intelligent computers that want to destroy humanity".
the end of the known world close.
