Mankind must find a way to create cyborgs with biological and digital intelligence to avoid becoming irrelevant, billionaire car company and space-travel startup CEO Elon Musk says.

"Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence," Musk, who owns Tesla and Space-X, told an audience at the World Government Summit in Dubai, CNBC reports.

"It's mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output."

Musk noted that computers can communicate at a trillion bits per second, while humans can do just 10 bits per second.

"Some high bandwidth interface to the brain will be something that helps achieve a symbiosis between human and machine intelligence and maybe solves the control problem and the usefulness problem," Musk explained.
