Elon Musk is a firm believer that humans will be eclipsed by artificial intelligence. Also that we must find a way to directly communicate to machines. Because If we don’t we run the risk of being irrelevant. But of course it was said in a smoothing way by everyone’s favorite billionaire.

He went on to say “Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence.” to the World Government Summit in Dubai. As well it’s were he started Telsa in the United Arab Emirates. He continued on with “It’s mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and digital version of yourself, particularly output.”.

The idea of combining the human geneticist with technology isn’t new at all. Many of the best and brightest people have worked on something like that for years. Not to mention that this is something that is huge in the Scifi community. The fact that a man like him is saying something like this is getting a lot of attention.

Now when people think of human and technology being one. They generally think of some kind of high tech super computer. But to be more relateable think of a VR headset. Musk usage of “bandwidth” is interesting to say the less. Mainly because it’s the way that machines communicate with each other. We only use about 10 bits per second every time we use a smartphone.

Another reason for him to be thinking so outside the box is because many people are losing their jobs. At a rapid pace to machines. Especially to those who drive because many companies like Uber are looking into self driving cars. Elon Musk went on to say “We need to figure out new roles for what those people do, but it will be very disruptive and very quick.”. So it seems like he’s saying all this not to sound like a crazy scientist but to help people save/create new jobs.
