Specifically, when asked by the founder of DogeCoin, Billy Markus: “If you can upload brain data to the cloud to chat, can you two become friends”, Elon Musk answered. In short: “Done”.
Although there is no further explanation, many people understand that the world’s richest billionaire is implicitly referring to scientific advances related to Neuralink, his own cult neurotechnology company. Accordingly, the main activity of Neuralink is to research and develop a technology that allows to “digitize” the human brain to serve many purposes such as storing or controlling machines through thoughts.
On April 9, 2021, Neuralink posted a video with the main character, a monkey named Pager, who had a chip implanted in his brain and played the game entirely with his mind.
In early 2022, Elon Musk himself revealed that it is now possible to transfer data back from a computer to a human brain using Neuralink’s technology. The fact that this billionaire announced he was “talking” with his own clone once again confirms that the ability to communicate two-way has most likely been successfully tested.

However, with no further information available other than Elon Musk’s brief reply on Twitter, it’s still too early for us to fantasize about a future where it’s possible to upload your own mind to Optimus Prime and become a into a real Autobot. Although this billionaire has confirmed that this is completely possible.
