Elon Musk on the Future of Humanity

Elon Musk was interviewed about the future of humanity on Clubhouse.

Here are some highlights:

* Neuralink has a monkey with a wireless implant in their skull who can play video games using his mind
* Every is already a cyborg. The smartphones and computers are an extra layer of capability. The communication rate is at most 100 bits per second.
* The direct neural interface will be able to improve the bandwidth between your cortex and your digital tertiary layer by many orders of magnitude. Elon think the bandwidth will increase by 10,000 times or more.
* Neuralink’s current goal is treating those with brain and spinal injuries.

Elon repeated the goals of colonizing Mars.

Elon discussed the Robinhood blocking trading of Gamestop and other stocks. Vlad Tenev, chief executive officer of stock trading app Robinhood, joined the interview to talk about the GameStop-Reddit.

Elon also discussed the COVID vaccines and how we should do things to speed up deployment by giving everyone the first dose on a first come first serve basis.
