Question Neuralink: Boosting Brain Power

the idea itself is not new.. but it looks much closer than ever..
what do you guys think about it?

learning a new language in few mins or specializing on a subject pretty fast..
what drawbacks it ll bring to humanity?

As pointed out before by Elon, when technologies like neuralink are able to greatly increase the bandwidth connection between humans and technology (or the Internet), earning power will increase exponentially. I have a feeling that those who choose not to have the implant will be doomed to poverty and isolation, almost as if they are a lesser subspecies. It's interesting to think that this may cause a massive divide in humankind, with one portion choosing to take the next step in evolution and the other portion choosing to stay strictly biological. It raises so many economic, social, and political questions. I don't think it's a huge leap to assume that people who choose to stay biological would perish.

And then the government would decide what you can and can't do

It's Elon... while I think the guy is brilliant, I also think he talks a lot of shit. He was on the Joe Rogan podcast a week or so ago and talked about this there also. Sounds cool, however I don't think we are anywhere near doing any of the cool stuff.

Obviously the first application will be treating people with disorders or damage to the brain etc. Hopefully they can make some progress in that area fairly quickly.
