British IBM Inventor Seeking Support for AI Implants
Artificially intelligent nano-machines will be injected into humans within 20 years to repair and enhance muscles, cells and bone, a senior inventor at IBM has forecast.
John McNamara, who works at IBM Hursley Innovation Centre, in Hampshire, submitted evidence to the House of Lords Artificial Intelligence Committee, which is considering the economic, ethical and social implications of AI.
Scientists at companies, including Microsoft, are already developing a computer made from DNA, which could live inside cells and look for faults in bodily networks, such as cancer. If it spotted cancerous changes it would reboot the system and clear out the diseased cells.
Going further, the report suggests that in 20 years humans will be able to control houses and cars, among other technology, with our minds! After injecting smart-bots into our bodies, we will allow become healthier and more in control of our personal lives with the power of thought.
“We may see AI nano-machines being injected into our bodies,” he told Peers. “These will provide huge medical benefits, such as being able to repair damage to cells, muscles and bones – perhaps even augment them.”
