As AI and robots rise up, do humans need an upgrade too?

Forget hacking a computer. Some researchers want to hack the brain to create human superintelligence to compete with AI. [Read More]

Summary… * Machine-Made


Tech luminaries such as Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk have issued gloom-and-doom warnings about the misuse of the technology.
But some, including one startup from Musk himself, see an opportunity to use tech to boost human capabilities — and potentially partner with AI.
That said, he does advocate for safeguards — humans don't have a track record of always being trustworthy and he wants to mitigate what he acknowledges is a chance things could go wrong.
But if Johnson's vision holds true and our brains are downloaded onto a chip, we may soon need to place a line between humans and machines.
The risk, said Casanova, is that brain augmentation "may actually be sold as a panacea, which it is not."

Opinion… * Man-Made


Yes, some entrepreneurs are looking into augmenting our brains so that we can develop superintelligence. The procedure will likely involve implanting technology into our brains, creating what is known as a brain-computer interface. #Trend
