Robotisation of Japan, IA threat, dehumanisation, microchips, control, addiction

In Japan, millions of young people are on a quest to immerse themselves in the dominating Westernisation, by abandoning everything traditional, adopting more modernist styles and embracing the digital age and new technologies. More and more often, the Japanese are personalising their machines and giving names to their robots, cell phones and media devices… and championing video game characters, singers and virtual actors. In other words, electronic devices have become so vital for life in Japan that they are becoming virtual members of the family and many people spend more time with machines than with their own relatives. 
We live in a society where Artificial Intelligence is causing huge alterations to the brains of the young and, if we do not take urgent measures, the fate of this humanity will be overwhelmed by automatization which will produce irreparable effects. It weakens feeling, expressivity, and natural spontaneity, thereby creating a generation of insensitive robot children.
Technology and robotics are making us increasingly vulnerable, despite their usefulness in societies like that of Japan which is lacking the work force to carry out many jobs and facing the challenges of an aging populace. Robotic androids have received a warm welcome in Japan; there are robot babies and robot pets, android presenters and actors, robot waiters and cooks as well as robot politicians…
Moreover, the merging of man and machine will continue to escalate until we become a transhumanist race of cyborg androids. Although this might seem like fiction, many futurists believe that the creation of machines using Artificial Intelligence is becoming a reality that will mark the end of humanity, because the time will come when artificial intelligence surpasses human intelligence. What can be said about the new 5G network and the huge health and environmental risks it poses for human, animal and plant life? What relationship does this have with the fact that artificial neuronal networks have been created to copy and simulate the biological human brain? And what are the objectives of the company called Neuralink, which focuses on the fusion or interfacing between humans and electronics?
