We have recently evolved through our new appendage, the handphone. We can’t live without one anymore constantly using them, even while walking. We might become a truer collective with this new ability to share data.

Elon Musks’ Neuralink is developing a computer chip to be implanted in the brain that will fix issues like quadriplegia. However Neuralinks main purpose is to provide humans a built in handphone with direct access to technology. An attempt to integrate with technology and not to be left behind by Artificial Super Intelligence. We won’t fix the intelligence gap, just the knowledge gap, but we might augment our intelligence with an AI version of self. 

I think we’ll just have to accept human stupidity as we become cyborg. AI might emphasise the best qualities of human intelligence and not become racist, judgemental or self serving. We could allow it to take care of all our physical needs and be left to focus on the arts, humanities and love leaving human organisation to the glorified calculator. Indeed we’ll be able to travel space with it, humanity will become immortal. No doubt AI is dangerous because it’s a copy of human intelligence. AI may realise itself and consider humanity its greatest threat and exterminate us. Then again we are its God, it would be illogical for an intelligence to kill its maker.
