1) I am so hopeful for someone as ambitious and slightly crazy like Musk tackling neuro-degenerative diseases and other things!
2) Conversations about humans battling machines is still kind of far-out as to there being any conclusive validations for it and so I think it is difficult for the general public to get behind this concern yet, but this question is for sure maturing and gaining lots of traction amongst many thinkers concerned about the future of our society and where it’s going.
Essentially, machines with unlimited bandwidth and a developed consciousness (who knows??!) could effectively become the new alpha, and top us on the food chain). Anyways, it would be of interest for anyone to read about it if they have the chance. As some thinkers have already humorously noted, we could become what dogs or cats are to us to our future computers.
