The next stage won't be human, futurist says.

It's not that cyborgs will turn against us, James Lovelock says. But the British futurist and environmentalist does think they'll replace us. "Our supremacy as the prime understanders of the cosmos is rapidly coming to end," Lovelock writes in his new book, Novacene—the new age.

I found that future very chilling. Hopefully there will be another option, like cyber implants.

Why would AI limit it's capabilities with living tissue building a better version of itself?


AI overlords? Plausible. Terminators? The cyborg better not hold it's breath. The AI will probably stab it in vital tissue with a butter knife.

There may be a window wherein the cognitive abilities of humans can integrate with digital technology to produce individuals that are smarter overall than either AI or human. That lifeform can then proceed to change to a purely digital form through suitable neural mapping, and thereafter evolve itself.

This is at least 500-1000 yrs away...but I do admit, if we continue like we are, this will happen at some point. We are long overdue for the next big Tech 'leap forward', some new discovery, likely found by accident, will change everything overnight imo.

I find it hard to believe. Whenever I operate a computer, it has to be babied almost every step of the way. Robots wouldn't even know how to replace the human race, if they tried, they would fail miserably.

Stephen Hawkins also predicted AI will surpass human intelligence within 100 years in his ten predictions he made before he died. He added “We’ll just have to hope their goals are aligned with ours”.

But I find it hard that this good computer tech would exist based on other tech, or I would need to see it to believe it.
