A charisma is associated with Artificial Intelligence. It fascinates you. It makes you feel unique. It opens novel horizons. And, with all of this it manages to establish a gleam to a new world.
So, at the present the world is really excited with all the gadgets, the latest in technology and innovations. And, then there are the tech billionaires who are with the perception that the world in which every individual is an inhabitant is not the real world. Yes, you read that right! This implies that this world is a simulation of the real world.
The best aspect with regards to these thoughts is that the tech billionaires completely believe in this hypothesis of theirs. And, if reports are to be true, it is them who are funding scientist to break the simulation and enter the real world.
A very clear picture has been provided by The New Yorker’s Tad Friend: “Many people in Silicon Valley have become obsessed with the simulation hypothesis, the argument that what we experience as reality is in fact fabricated in a computer. Two tech billionaires have gone so far as to secretly engage scientists to work on breaking us out of the simulation.”
However who the two tech billionaires are, who are funding the project till date is unknown.
There have always been the tech magnates who have discussed the idea of simulation. Again, if funding is to be discussed with regards to a different effort-Elon Musk’s name pops up almost instantly.
Yet again, it will be interesting to comprehend what Mr. Musk had said earlier this year. In accordance with him, the chances that the humans and the population are not living in a computer simulation or matrix are one in billions. He concluded in to this aspect when, it was pointed out that the computing technology has advanced immensely, and it will be tedious to not distinguish it from the real life. He further simplifies that there is a chance for the same in the future ensures that, the same has happened in the past. And maybe the present is the picture of a simulation already happened.
There is also that fear that if this is not a simulation, there is a high chance that due to some tragic event the human life would probably come to a cease. And, he is not alone who thinks on this ground, Mr. Altman too has a similar concern.
In consonance with Mr. Altman, the best manner to deal with the same is through merging of the brains with the computer, it will be like uploading into the cloud. He says: “The full-on-crazy version of the merge is we get our brains uploaded into the cloud. I’d love that. We need to level up humans, because our descendants will either conquer the galaxy or extinguish consciousness in the universe forever. What a time to be alive!”
If this is so, it will be really interesting to look forward to a real world journey!
