A new era is upon us

Sorry humans, it’s time to prepare for the Machinocene era

Machineocene? What happened to humanocene, an Anthropocene era?

Are you preparing for an Internet Beyond Things? An IoT that goes IBT? Many Internets of You, IoU’s, Connected, ‘Enhanced’ NextGen DigiBodies.

Taking your jobs away, making a ‘Regular’ you less competitive, obsolete! A Cybernetic tomorrow? Is it more than a Photoshopped magazine image?

Elon Musk is preparing. “He so obsessed with self-improving artificial intelligence (A.I.) being mankind’s biggest existential threat that he now has a new company, Neuralink.”

Musk’s new company, according to the Wall Street Journal, will create devices known as “neural laces” that can be implanted in the human brain so people can mentally merge with software and ensure artificial intelligence programs have less of a chance of taking over the world and destroying humanity.

A Musk-inspired SpaceX Mind is in development, but not to worry.

Perhaps, cooperation with ‘the Net’ and A.I. is the ticket. Not competition with machines, but being (how to put it) ‘connected’ to your smart home, your smart office, your smart car, your smart life and learning as you go.

Oren Etzioni, director of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, in Seattle, hopes that happens. “The future that we need to have is a future where we coöperate with machines in the workplace, so it makes sense to study the form of that coöperation,” he says.

We’ll see, now won’t we?

Robot Revolt !

They, AI, YAI, the Changers of human life are on the way.

The “Fourth Industrial Revolution” is arriving, it’s here, they’re here, look around.

“We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before.”
