NEIL: YOU KNOW, I SHOO'ED MY PANEL AWAY WAY TOO EARLY GOOD THING THEY'RE STILL HERE, TO TALK ON A SUBJECT NEAR AND DEAR TO THEIR HEARTS

ELON MUSK COOKING UP A BRAIN IMPLANT TECHNOLOGY THAT THEY JUST PUT THIS CHIP I GUESS INTO YOUR SKULL, AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT GOOD IT DOES BUT IT'S THERE, AND IT FOLLOWS YOU AND TRACKS YOU THIS WAY MY WIFE CAN KEEP TRACK OF MY DUNKIN' DONUTS VISITS I DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS GOES YOU KNOW, I KEEP HEARING THIS IS THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE AND ALL THIS I JUST THINK IT'S LIKE BIG BROTHER

IT'S A LITTLE SCARY >> IT'S SUPER-SCARY IT'S ALSO ONE OF THOSE THINGS WHERE SCIENCE FICTION CAN REALLY BECOME SCIENCE FACT WHEN I READ ABOUT THIS, ELON MUSK POSITIONED THIS AS A WAY OF POTENTIALLY TREATING COGNITIVE DEGENERATIVE DISEASES BUT IF YOU GO BACK AND LOOK AT OTHER TECHNOLOGIES LIKE GENE EDITING, THAT STARTED OFF AS A WAY TO HELP WITH THERAPY AND MEDICAL USAGE BUT HAS TURNED INTO SOMETHING MORE ONEROUS I WORRY THIS WILL GO IN A SIMILAR DIRECTION

NEIL: WHAT DO YOU THINK? >> THERE ARE USES MOST OF US COULD AGREE WITH BUT IT COULD GO OFF THE RAILS REAL QUICK >> I THINK AT A CERTAIN PRICE, I'M WILLING TO LET ELON IMPLANT IT IN ME BUT I'M WORRIED GIVEN HIS TRACK RECORD HE WON'T IMPLANT IT ON TIME NEIL: OR THE POWER WILL JUST DRAIN YOU WILL STOP MID-TRACK YOU KNOW, THIS TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN AROUND AWHILE

WE DO IT WITH PETS TO KEEP TRACK IF THEY GET LOST, WHATEVER BUT IT'S ANOTHER MATTER, THIS GOES BEYOND JUST IDENTIFYING WHERE YOU ARE, BUT IT CAN HELP YOU WITH DISEASES, BUT IT IS JUST ANOTHER REMINDER OF HOW TECHNOLOGY COULD CHANGE THE WAY WE LITERALLY BEHAVE ON A MINUTE BY MINUTE BASIS >> ELON HAS A RESPONSE TO THAT HE'S SENDING IT TO ME RIGHT NOW >> IT WILL IMPROVE MY COGNITION, I'M WILLING

BUT DEPENDING ON YOUR PREFERENCES, YOU ARE ALREADY PRETTY DIALED INTO THE GRID IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT ANOTHER PRIVACY INVASION NEIL: YOU'RE PROBABLY RIGHT SPEAKING OF ELON, WHAT HE'S UP TO, TESLA IS STILL PUSHING THESE SELF-DRIVING CARS, THIS TECHNOLOGY THAT NOW HAS EXPANDED TO ALMOST EVERY MAJOR CAR COMPANY, INCLUDING RENAULT EARLIER TODAY, INDICATING IT'S GOING TO BUY THE BIGGEST BATTERY MAKER, ELECTRIC BATTERY MAKER THIS TECHNOLOGY IS OBVIOUSLY GOING PLACES

NOT THE CHIP THING, BUT YOU KNOW, DRIVERLESS CARS THAT'S THE FUTURE >> YEAH, I ACTUALLY HAVE MORE CONFIDENCE IN HIM, AND HE HAS — HE HAS CREATED GREAT TECHNOLOGY I THINK THE TECHNOLOGY IS GOING TO BE THERE, IT REALLY IS THERE IN MANY WAYS ALREADY THE PROBLEM IS REGULATION AND LITIGATION

I THINK THAT'S WHY IT'S NOT GOING TO BE EXPANDED AND USED — NEIL: WOULD YOU GET INTO ONE? HE HOPES TO HAVE OTHER FLEET OF TAXIS >> IT'S FUNNY — NOT FUNNY, IT OFTEN ENDS UP IN TRAGEDY BUT IT'S BECAUSE THE MACHINES CANNOT ACCOUNT FOR MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE THEN THE MACHINE WILL PROBABLY, IF IT'S NOT ALREADY, BE A BETTER DRIVER THAN A PERSON VERY QUICKLY BUT ANTICIPATING THE WEIRDNESS OF INDIVIDUAL DECISIONS BY PEOPLE NEIL: THEY STILL SAY THE STUDIES, THEY HAVE A MUCH MUCH HIGHER SAFETY AND ACCURACY RATE THAN INDIVIDUALS

BUT STILL, I DON'T KNOW IT WOULD FREAK ME OUT >> JUST IF YOU HEARD AUTO PILOT WAS GOING TO LAND THE PLANE, YOU WOULD PROBABLY RATHER HAVE A HUMAN DOING IT JUST BECAUSE WE ARE PROGRAMMED TO THINK THAT WAY BUT TO JAMES' POINT, I THINK IT WILL BE REGULATION FOR ME HOW DO YOU TRAIN A MACHINE TO MAKE A SPLIT-SECOND DECISION THAT MIGHT REQUIRE SPLIT-SECOND IS ACTUALLY TOO LONG, EVEN LESS THAN THAT, TO DECIDE BETWEEN, I DON'T KNOW, A PEDESTRIAN OR HARMING THE OCCUPANTS OF THE VEHICLE?
