AI Brain Chips Will ‘Evolve’ Humanity Into A ‘Community Of ZOMBIES’, Expert Claims

AI brain chips are set to ‘evolve’ humanity into a ‘community of zombies’, a prominent neuroscientist has claimed. Those implanting AI into their mind risk merging with machines to the point that humans and androids are indistinguishable from one another, the expert said. It was recently revealed that a tech company backed by billionaire Elon Musk is developing a ‘brain-computer interface’ that could give people super intelligence and allow them to communicate telepathically. Kernel is currently working on prototypes of a brain implant device for medical use in humans. Speaking to IEEE Spectrum, Dr Berger said: ‘We’re testing it in humans now, and getting good initial results. ‘We’re going to go forward with the goal of commercialising this prosthesis.’ But before being developed for healthy people, the firm hopes that the device will be used to improve memory in people with degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s. Speaking to New Scientist, Mr Johnson said: ‘The idea is that if you have loss of memory function, then you could build a prosthetic for the hippocampus that would help restore the circuitry, and restore memory. But brain implants could mean that machines start to take on or imitate human consciousness, Dr Mikhail Lebedev, a senior neuroscientist at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, told Cnet. The researcher warned that technology firms will falsely market the devices as a ‘panacea’ – a remedy for all difficulties. ‘It is even possible that “humanity” will evolve into a community of zombies,’ he said.
