Summarize your findings and write at least a one-page word document. In your report you will also need to address and respond to the following questions: From your point do you think CBI is a natural evolution in our Digital Transformation? Why or why not? Examine and evaluate the social impact in terms of human behavior and interactions with such technology? Try to list the pros and cons and note the winners and losers Knowing that every technology will lead to the creation of more technology, what would envision as the most likely next technology that will come as a result of using Neuralink?
