Japan would pay $1 billion to turn a man into a cyborg

The Japanese government is preparing to launch an extensive innovation incentive program, which should cover 25 key areas by 2050. New solutions will be sought and developed not only at home, but around the world. It will allocate $1 billion every 5 years for this purpose.

For example, it is proposed to radically robot all industries in order to solve the problem of labor shortages. This includes the creation of autonomous robots to replace humans in agriculture, construction, mines, forests and roads. These robots will be controlled by artificial intelligence. But not simple varieties, like modern neural networks, but a real digital mind. Japanese scientists and engineers say that by 2050, artificial intelligence will make new discoveries worthy of the Nobel Prize on a permanent basis.

The issue of the ageing of the country's population is being addressed through cyborgization and hibernation. Total replacement of worn-out body parts with implants will again turn weakened old people into useful members of society. And artificial sleep - hibernation - will help increase life expectancy. And, in addition, it will allow part of the population to dive into lethargic sleep, reducing the burden on infrastructure at critical moments.

In addition, by 2050 it is planned to recycle all garbage and neutralize all types of emissions into the atmosphere. Plastic ocean pollution from environmental disaster will be an important new source of raw materials - cheap and potentially endless.

All projects will be ranked in order of priority and new research applications will be accepted later this year.
