Merge with AI

A recent development that might help us keep up with advances in the Internet and Internet-related hard- and software (computers, smartphones, sensors, the cloud, Google, etc.) comes from Elton Musk’s “newest venture, Neuralink, a California company that plans to develop a device that can be implanted into the brain. . . . The device would allow a person’s brain to connect wirelessly with the cloud, as well as computers and other brains with the implant. . . . `We’re going to have the choice’, says Musk, `of either being left behind and being effectively useless or like a pet–you know, like a house cat or something–or eventually figuring some way to be symbiotic and merge with AI'”.  (Chicago Tribune, 8/23/17)
