Elon Musk has warned us that AI and in particular a digital super intelligent AI might render humanity extinct.

We should therefore proceed very carefully in the development of AI systems. One of the solutions for the AI control problem proposed by Elon Musk, is the integration of AI with the human brain through a brain-computer interface. That is one of the reasons why he founded Neuralink, a company focused on the development of implantable brain–machine interfaces.

Neuralink’s BMI technology might be able to overcome the biological limits of our minds and could even expand our intelligence.The symbiosis between AI and humans, may greatly benefit our species. It may also help humanity to expand out into space. In spite of these possibilities. Musk said that he sees the creation of digital superintelligences as a great risk to the existence of humanity, but he also thinks that we must nevertheless pursue its development.

LAWs, short for Lethal Autonomous Weapons may change the nature of warfare forever.

With the development of AI systems, drones that can autonomously find and eliminate a targeted individual are only years away not decades.

At this point, the issue is not with hardware but with software, meaning how fast new AI algorithms can be developed and be implemented for certain military purposes.

Insane Curiosity explores Elon Musk’s plans for colonizing Mars.

Elon Musk is a man on a mission, and that mission is to get humanity not just to Mars, but to get them to Mars in this decade. This is why he built his own space organization in SpaceX, to do what NASA (at the time) couldn’t do, inspire the need to be in space again. And he has succeeded, and now, SpaceX is not only one of the leading places in all space travel designs and plans, but they are indeed looking to be the group to send a person to Mars. But the plans go beyond that, he doesn’t just want to land a person on the surface of Mars and say he’s done (which is what we did with the moon if you really think about it), but he wants to set up a colony there.
