Doug Vining Merging with machines

Just last week we published a MindBullet that suggested future interfaces will let us communicate brain-to-brain or brain-to-computer, just by thinking about it. Which means you can 'merge' with an artificial intelligence to upgrade your cognitive capabilities. Now Elon Musk (one of our techno-heroes) has come out saying that we MUST merge with machines, in order to stay relevant in the future! Here's the CNBC post.
A FuturesForum post (titled: "Merging with machines") refers to this MindBullet. The full FuturesForum post can be read here: http://www.futureworld.org/PublicZone/FuturesForum/BlogDetails.aspx?PostID=0995e04d-36d0-48e2-a8f0-d828395a01d0
