The shift to Elon Musk's Tesla-style self-driving electric cars could be swift, according to Tony Seba. His prediction is based on the possibility that the price of new electric self-driving cars could drop below $20,000 by 2022. The switch would reportedly save an average American family $5,600 per year.
Muscle cars like Mustang, Camaro, and Corvette are currently in demand by the American public, and their counterparts in Europe are also in high demand. Could the desire for convenience and economy drive the market away from the beloved Camaros and Mustangs in favor of something like Elon Musk's Tesla?
Could Elon Musk's Tesla and other electric self-driven cars take the auto market by storm? Seba reportedly predicts 95 percent of all highway miles will be driven by autonomous electric vehicles by 2030.
Elon Musk of Tesla is not just claiming electric cars with AI will make performance cars obsolete, Elon Musk says humans will also become obsolete unless they merge with machines. Elon says that humans are about to become irrelevant in the coming AI age, according to CNBC.
If losing Cameros, Mustangs, Corvettes, and other high-performance muscle cars, not to mention beloved family vehicles, seems extreme, what about humans becoming cyborgs? That's what a lot of news reports are saying about Neuralink, the latest Elon Musk development. World Star Hip Hop offered this explanation.
"The Tesla and SpaceX CEO [Elon Musk] said that humans need to merge with machines to become a sort of cyborg. Musk explained what he meant by saying that computers can communicate at 'a trillion bits per second' while humans, whose main communication method is typing with their fingers via a mobile device, can do about 10 bits per second. In an age when AI threatens to become widespread, humans would be useless, so there's a need to merge with machines, according to Musk."
Muscle cars, like the Camaro, Corvette, and Mustang as well as the enjoyment of driving still holds a lot of real estate in Western culture. Will resistance arise from those who like to drive?
Going to Mars on Elon Musk's SpaceX could be a possibility within the next 10 years, but what about Neuralink?
Elon Musk says robots are going to take human jobs, according to Yahoo Finance who quotes Elon Musk in an interview with CNBC.
"There is a pretty good chance we end up with a universal basic income, or something like that, due to automation, Yeah, I am not sure what else one would do. I think that is what would happen. People will have time to do other things, more complex things, more interesting things. Certainly more leisure time."
Elon Musk does have a solution for those who want to keep working. They can tweak their brain power with Neuralink. The Waking Times has some insight on Neuralink.
"[Elon Musk] has already laid the groundwork for this endeavor by saying that artificial intelligence (AI) is smarter than us, and thereby dangerous, so we must become cyborgs to some degree ourselves to survive. He is arguing that we must merge with machines to continue human civilization. Sounds about as transhumanist as it gets."
