Elon Musk says Humans may Eventually Download their Brains Into Robots

Tesla and SpaceX owner Elon Musk said that a day will come when humans will be able to download their Brains to Robots. In this way humans will be able to live forever.

According to Musk, ‘I think it is possible. We think that the things that make us unique, we can download those things. You may not be in that body, but it will make a big difference. But as far as saving our memories, our personality is concerned, we can do that.

According to Musk, such technology would be an evolution of today’s computer memory. Our memories are stored in our mobile-computer in the form of pictures and videos. Computers and phones enhance our ability to communicate, enabling us to do things that used to be considered magical.

We have already developed our human brain extensively with computers. The idea of ​​extending life by downloading human consciousness into an artificial body has been a part of science fiction stories for decades. In the 1964 novel ‘Dune’, such creatures were named ‘Cymex’. Experts believe that ‘mind uploading’ technology may one day become possible. However when that will happen is not certain.

Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Princeton University. Michael S.A. Graziano wrote in The Wall Street Journal that mind uploading would require two techniques: an artificial brain, and a scan of a person’s brain to assess how its neurons connect to each other. According to Graziano, making an artificial brain would be relatively simple.

Musk’s current start-up Neuralink is working to develop ‘brain-machine interface’. According to Musk, one day people will be able to keep a backup of their memories and will be able to recover the memory.

Elon Musk is working on a humanoid robot ‘Optimus’ these days. Its prototype will be made by the end of 2022. At the same time, commercial production will start by 2023. It will be used to make Tesla cars. Although Musk says that ‘Optimus’ will change the world. It can also be used in personal life. It will also be able to do things that we humans do not want to do.
