Our human activities are, today, seriously questioned by what is called: Artificial Intelligence, AI for insiders. Current brain obsolescence is becoming more than a fear: evidence.

Artificial intelligence and aggregated data from computer systems do each other on a small scale. We can say that the human brain has fallen into this race for more performance, and this is just the beginning.

We are already borrowing some bits of artificial intelligence to increase the capabilities of this brain. It is the dawn of augmented humans, aided by invasive techniques, such as placing implants directly into the brain. The ethical, philosophical and moral debate is open.

Silicon Valley researchers have started developing these new technologies and are making great strides.

Recently, Mark Zuckerberg announced the disruption of Facebook with the establishment of a new business model. Tomorrow the use of computers or smartphones will become ancient history. We will connect with our friends on the other side of the world or in the immediate vicinity, directly, from brain to brain, thanks to the telepathic helmet. In April 2017 Facebook had presented projects in the field of the neural interface. These projects already aimed to connect the brain directly to the computer. It is the arrival of the human-machine interface where very quickly we will no longer know who, man or AI, is leading the dance.

Elon Musk, who has set himself the goal of saving our species, believes that our salvation lies in the development of plants designed to increase human capabilities. For him, AI is the enemy of man. We must therefore increase our intellectual abilities. The fight against evil and powerful AI will be tough in the 21st century universe.

In June 2016, Elon Musk said, “There is an urgent need to hybridize our brains with microchips before AI turns us into pets. The kindest of us will be fed by artificial intelligence as we feed them. our Labradors.

Let’s keep calm, the time when machines will rule the world has not yet arrived, but we have to admit that they are progressing quickly. The Artificial Intelligence Index project, which brings together researchers from Stanford University, MIT, Harvard and Oxford, made this observation. In a first report, the AI ​​Index notes a sharp increase in artificial intelligence research in recent years.

According to this first assessment, the artificial intelligence of machines approaches or beats that of humans on an increasing number of criteria. For now, advances in AI are still leaving machines far behind humans.

But some, including Elon Musk, predict that AI will overtake humans by 2060, others as early as 2030.

Dark Prospects for Man’s Free Will.
