Elon Musk Says Humans Need to Merge With Machines to Remain Relevant

Musk - who was also on hand to announce Tesla's expansion into the United Arab Emirates, the company's first official entrance to the Middle Eastern market - told a panel at the World Government Summit in Dubai Monday that while self-driving auto systems are imminent within the next few years, it might take longer for the tech to fully "disrupt" manual driving. "I want to be clear".
That money could theoretically be redistributed to give people financial security even if they don't work. "SO IF THERE'S NO NEED FOR YOUR LABOR, WHAT'S YOUR MEANING?" said SpaceX's CEO. Do you feel useless? This is going to be a massive social challenge. In all likelihood, we will need to massively improve our understanding of the human brain before any such interface can be created.
According to him a new and wider kind of bandwidth will ensure that the symbiosis between humans and machines can be made in a discreet level to achieve a symbiosis between humans and Artificial intelligence. Humans will have to form shape of a cyborg hybrid if they would like to keep up.
Computers relay information at "a trillion bits per second", whereas humans, who mostly communicate by typing, can do so at about 10 bits per second.
With Tesla planning to ramp up the production of 500,000 Model 3 vehicles annually by next year, the latest news shows that the company is on track with the development of its first mid-priced auto. Will automakers produce cars built with driverless technology off the bat?
Musk informed the Summit that there are about 2 billion cars globally, with annual vehicle output hovering near 100 million, which is simply logical, according to Musk, seeing as how the average functional life of a auto is about 20 to 25 years. He specifically noted a closer merger of biological and digital intelligence.
The future of cities is underground. "These are not things I wish will happen; these are things I think probably will happen". The challenge is: How do you build tunnels quickly, at low-priced, with high safety? But before you worry about that, know he's got a solution. Current deployments of AI are quite limited in that they can only perform one or two tasks adequately-drive a vehicle, lift a piece of steel, flip a burger-but AI research is slowly bubbling towards artificial general intelligence (AGI), which can ostensibly perform every task that a human is capable of.
