While I have to admit, "Borg" was the first thing that came to mind, we all know this is going to hash out a lot more like the Quake 4 or Matrix storyline. Elon lays out the argument that AI will have such an advantage when it comes to handling bits and bytes that we will have no choice but up our interface game to stay relevant. I know I have a serial cable stashed around here somewhere, so I am going to get to work on this today.

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. "Some high bandwidth interface to the brain will be something that helps achieve a symbiosis between human and machine intelligence and maybe solves the control problem and the usefulness problem," Musk explained.
