Kernel – a business set up last year – is developing technology that would give people super-intelligence like never seen before.
Bryan Johnson, who founded the company, presented the idea of a “brain-computer interface”, which will also allow us to communicate with machines.
It would also give people the capabilities to solve incredibly complex problems in a matter of seconds.
Johnson said: “I’d argue this is a necessity for the future and for our relevance.”
This is due to fears mankind will potentially be useless in a world dominated by machines that can basically do most jobs.
He explained: “My definition of human is the fact that I can be anything.
“I consider myself to be cognitively impaired because I am limited by my biases, by my blind spots. I don’t want the limitations, I don’t want those constraints, I want to break open.
“What is everybody so scared about losing? Do we not spend our life trying to correct ourselves?
“I’m incredibly frustrated being human.”
