USA - Machine to Connect to Human Brain

Arno Froese

Elon Musk has revealed his Neuralink startup is close to announcing the first brain-machine interface to connect humans and computers.

The entrepreneur took to Twitter to tell followers the technology would be “coming soon”—though he failed to provide details.

Neuralink was set up in 2016 with the ambitious goal of developing hardware to enhance the human brain, however, little about how this will work has been made public.

The startup’s website, which is advertising vacancies for 11 different jobs, describes the futuristic technology as an “ultra-high bandwidth” connection between the human brain and computers.

Mr. Musk has frequently claimed the rapid rise of artificial intelligence poses an existential risk to humanity. Such an interface, he says, is essential if humans are to compete with such technology in the future.

Arno's commentary

The term “artificial intelligence” is somewhat overrated. Regardless of what type of invention is made, it is built by humans. Yet, to what extent will the manmade equipment control humanity is the question. At this point in time, the entire world financial and economic system would collapse if, for example, electricity and computers were taken out of the equation. Virtually everything would stop, and that would mean the end of humanity on planet earth.

What does the Bible say? We know that in the end stages of the end times, a manufactured “image” will enforce the law. Revelation 13 reports the false prophet giving the command: “…saying to them that dwell on the earth [that’s global], that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live” (Revelation 13:14). That image receives “life” to “…cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” (verse 15).
