AI Chips Will Let You Hack Your Own Bodies to Transform into a Superhuman!
Fulfil your dreams of becoming a superhero by leveraging AI chips and gadgets!
If being human has made you bored, advanced AI chips are here to elevate you into a superhuman. It is not a figment of imagination as perhaps the very first reaction to this statement is supposed to be. Artificial intelligence or AI’s progress has made it a reality. Let’s explain the development in detail by introducing biohacking and its correlation to AI models.
Welcome to the world of biohacking! Also known as human augmentation or human enhancement biohacking, as one definition of it goes, is do-it-yourself biology aimed at improving performance, health, and wellbeing through strategic interventions. It is an evolving concept-cum-process by which one can impact one’s own body by maneuvering chemistry and physiology through science and self-experimentation with the goal of increasing energy and vitality. It includes a kind of self-experiment but insofar as the legal issues are concerned it is in a grey zone, which means that such a process may require prior approval on certain occasions.
Let’s take up a concrete instance. Lepht Anonym, the “faceless, genderless” British transhuman biohacker, has attracted much publicity for a pioneering role in this regard. One mode of biohacking is the implantation of what is known as the “pirate box” which is basically a file-sharing device— a hard drive and WiFi router that creates a local wireless network. It provides a facility for USB storage and a WiFi antenna by which the users can connect to it via their phone or PC, wherein they could download and upload files. Within the next few days, it is possible to utilize the experimental device by inserting it under human skin, with the extraneous components taken out, the battery being replaced with a wireless charging coil, and the USB storage soldered down. As an additional requirement, the box is to be coated with multiple layers of resin-type substance to bio-proof the device. A specific operation is done to insert the box into the body. One however has to carry such items with extreme caution and there are reports of things going wrong when the biohacker becomes a little less careful, as was the case with Anonym. However, such constraints do not affect the overall popularity of biohacking.
The essence of it is that with the implantation of a number of AI chips, magnets, and antennae inside the body the human body (in Anonym’s case involving more than fifty operations) is promoted to the status of a superhuman/posthuman by way of calibrating the power of new artificial intelligence technology or AI models to surpass the physical, psychological and even intellectual limits of a human being.
While the source of inspiration for the phenomenon of biohacking, AI, and the tendency to overcome human limits can be traced back to the idea of cyborg and cyberpunk literature and a host of movies and video games the fact that it is now being initiated in reality is sure to give rise to both interest and debates at the same time— with contrasting descriptions of the experiment being “weird”/”destructive” to “innovative” and “path-breaking”. Whether the drive for an extra sense of superhuman through AI chips and other AI models makes any sense is a question that will steal the limelight for now.
