Elon Musk seems to be more than one person. Somehow he has time to run an automobile company, a rocket ship company, a battery company, and now he is interested in modifying human beings. His stated motivation for this is because he believes Artificial Intelligence is a dangerous technology. I happen to agree with him about that. He has finally acknowledged that there is simply no way to stop the advancement of AI technology. Consequently, he has determined that if we can’t stop the advance of AI, we must join it on our terms. I am not sure how I feel about that, but for now, his outside-of-the-box thinking has earned him a special place on my website.
The brain implant technology is interesting, it is also scary. Some say that it smacks of the biblical Mark of the Beast. Of course, There Is no need to decide today whether you will get your chip, but I think that it is fair to say that at some point this technology will be approved, and join the other plans for marking and tracking humans. However, if Elon is to be believed then this might be more a case of salvation, than of condemnation. Time will tell.
