“Elon Musk… he’s been concerned about AI. And he thinks that Artificial Intelligence is basically going to make us inferior, like house pets. And his solution is to implant hundreds of sensors like a mesh network around the brain, intercepting the signals going in and out. Then there will be a kind of API exposing our information, and we can just connect that to AI.”

Talking at Devoxx Belgium 2016 about biohacking, Pär Sikö, CTO of Jayway, talks to us about what makes him special: a chip implant.

Programming your body with chip implants

“I did a lot of research before I took the chip… but I still wanted to make sure it was ok so I called my wife. And I said, “Hey, I’m on this conference and they’re offering free chip implants, and I’m thinking about taking one, what do you think?”

“My wife, being in the pharmaceutical industry, she has a different view of this. So her response: “That is the stupidest idea you’ve ever come up with!!!”.”

Watch the intriguing journey Pär Sikö took in pushing technological and biological boundaries.
