Elon Musk – Universal Basic Income – Few and Fewer Jobs that a Machine cannot do Better




We join an interview with Elon Musk who is being interviewed at the World Government Summit. He answers the question, what to do with mass unemployment? He answers that there should be a universal income so that even if someone isn’t working they can still be paid. “There will be fewer and fewer jobs that a robot cannot do better.” Because of everything moving toward robots producing everything and doing normal jobs then everything will be cheaper. When our jobs are taken away then we aren’t able to find value in work which is where many find value. “There is nothing better for a person than that he should eat and drink and find enjoyment in his toil. This also, I saw, is from the hand of God.” If we had millions of idle people in our nation and the world it would not be good. When someone takes away your ability to work it is taking away what God has designed you to do. God has made us to live a productive fruitful life.

Elon continues to share about how he believes we, humans, are already like cyborgs. When we die we leave behind a “digital ghost” because everything that is online is still there. Because of this he believes that “we will see a merger between biological intelligence and machine intelligence. A computer can communicate at a billion bits per second. But, your thumb can maybe do 10 bits/second, or 100 if you’re being generous…So, some high bandwidth interface to the brain, I think, will be something that helps achieve a symbiosis between human and machine intelligence, and maybe solves the control problem and the usefulness problem.”

Elon is saying that there will be some way our brain will be able to connect to the internet! Reportedly, Ray Kurzweil is already working on a brain cortex that connects to the internet. Instead of having to type our search queries into Google, we will simply be able to think what we are searching for. We need to walk in wisdom in these days and learn what God says to do which is what our goal is here at VFNKB, to help you walk this out! We want to hear from you. Also shared in this segment: biological intelligence, cyborg intelligence, mental cortex, AI, artificial intelligence, massive unemployment, Silicon Valley, Communism, Socialism, mobile phone companies, Barcelona Spain, and robot soldiers. Greg and John shared in this segment.
