Tech billionaire Elon Musk believes that humanity is quickly moving toward a man-machine hybridization, where humans are becoming cyborgs as they grow ever more dependent on technology to go about their daily lives. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO has always been in the forefront of making claims and putting forward ideas that may appear to be radical, but do pose serious observations and reflections in hindsight. Neural Lace is an electronic mesh that fits the brain like a glove and had the ability to expand with it. He contended, "Some high bandwidth interface to the brain will be something that helps achieve a symbiosis between human and machine intelligence and maybe solves the control problem and the usefulness problem".

"There will be fewer and fewer jobs that a robot can not do better", Musk said, according to Fast Company.
Musk has warned of the dangers of artificial intelligence numerous times in the past, but at least now it comes with the caveat that a grim Terminator/I Have No Mouth But I Must Scream-esque future could be avoidable, provided we choose to merge with the machines.
