Tesla and SpaceX boss Elon Musk reckons he'll need a computer chip strapped to his brain to survive beyond 2100.
The billionaire has been developing the technology, called Neuralink, because he thinks humans must become one with machines in order to survive being replaced by artificial intelligence.
Musk's plan to "save the human race" involves wiring computer chips into our minds to merge us with artificial intelligence. He says brain-computer interfaces will turn humans into a genius super race.
Last year, Musk told Axios: "The long term aspiration with Neuralink would be to achieve a symbiosis with artificial intelligence and to achieve a sort of democratisation of intelligence, such that it is not monopolistically held in a purely digital form by governments and large corporations."
He also said that the technology would involve an "electrode to neutron interface at a micro level."
This essentially means that the tech would have to be surgically implanted into human skulls.
TIANJIN, May 18 (Xinhua) -- China has achieved a breakthrough in Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) chip research, with its first BCI chip "Brain Talker" making its debut on Friday at the ongoing World Intelligence Congress held in northern China's Tianjin Municipality.
BCI is a system allowing a person to control a computer or other electronic device using his or her brainwaves, without requiring any movement or verbal instruction.
Brain Talker, specially designed for decoding brainwave information, may replace traditional computer devices used in BCI due to its more portable size, precision in decoding, high efficiency in computing and faster communication ability.
Ming Dong, director of the Academy of Medical Engineering and Translational Medicine in Tianjin University, said the chip can identify minor neuron information sent by the brain wave from the cerebral cortex, efficiently decode the information and greatly quicken the communication speed between the brain and machine.
"Brain Talker makes BCI technology more promising for civil use since the chip is more portable, wearable and simpler," Ming added.
Brain Talker was co-developed by Tianjin University and China Electronics Corporation with fully independent intellectual property rights.
Cheng Longlong, a data scientist from China Electronics Corporation, said scientists would endeavor to enhance the performance of the chip for wider use in the fields of medical treatment, education, home life and gaming in the future.

wornout: miron, I'm sorry to hear that. It's just plain wrong that the president of the Philippines is threatening to arrest people who were not vaccinated & won't be able to leave their homes.

Hans Schokkenbroek: It is amazing to see the nr of posted videos on this forum that have been removed by YT. Amazing... Hope all are doing well. I just ordered a diplomatic passport which allows me to cross borders freely!

mironlang: I hope you get it soon Hans. A diplomatic passport.. that is cool
Sept 6, 2021 15:03:09 GMT
Hans Schokkenbroek: Already have it Miron. I will share my knowledge of course. It is based on Natural Law
