'This week, arch-technocrat and welfare tax-queen, Elon Musk, was caught fear-mongering on the specter of A.I again,
“He reiterated those fears in an interview published Friday with Recode’s Kara Swisher, though with a little less apocalyptic rhetoric. “As AI gets probably much smarter than humans, the relative intelligence ratio is probably similar to that between a person and a cat, maybe bigger,” Musk told Swisher. “I do think we need to be very careful about the advancement of AI.” (Vox.com)
What he didn’t mention is how he just received SEC approval to start raising millions in capital for his new start-up company Neuralink, a company that seeks to create Brain Chip Interfaces, “BCI’s” for human’s to interface with computers. Yes, $100 million dollars in first round funding to plug the human mind into future advanced systems that he constantly puts down and deems a threat to the species.
“…as for TBC and Neuralink, the waivers didn’t offer anything unexpected, although they did provide great, brief overviews of what exactly the two companies are currently working towards. Although it was announced in late 2017 that Musk would sell stock to fund initial operations at TBC and Neuralink, both companies’ legal representatives confirmed the exact amount of funding raised by “Musk and various other third-party investors”: $112.5 million and $100.2 million, respectively.” (Teslarati.com)
The fear-mongering he routinely rolls out to the press is a ploy to hype the threat of A.I. to the human species, in an effort to raise more capital for his ventures. He is very good at fooling investors that the tech has progressed enough and is ready for heavy investing. His supposed answer to the A.I threat is, we all become machines ourselves through brain-chip interfaces, with the idea A.I. won’t see us as a threat anymore, and accept us as their own. This existential threat doesn’t even exist and was first made popular by Futurist Ian Pearson at a Globalism summit of all places this last Feburary in Dubai.'
