Elon Musk announced Neuralink at a presentation live-streamed from California Academy of Science on July 16.
Neuralink's objective is to connect microscopic chips in mind with threads narrower than a human hair. Those threads read activity in the brain's neurons and also permit the user to control things with the mind, sending info to sensors on the skull--data which is then processed by a hearing computer.
Finally, we can perform a full brain-machine interface. This is going to sound bizarre. Finally, we could achieve a symbiosis with artificial intelligence. This isn't a mandatory thing, this is something if you want you may opt to have. This is going to be very important on a civilization-level scale. In an AI situation, we will be left. Using a high-bandwidth brain-machine interface, we have the option of merging with AI and also can go along for the ride.
Unless we have some kind of brain-machine interface which may solve brain disorders of all types, whether it's an injury or congenital, or any sort of illness or a spinal disorder, we can solve that with a chip. That is something most folks don't know. All of this will occur quite slowly. It's not like Neuralink will start taking over people's brains and will suddenly have lace. It is going to take a long time, and people will see it coming.
Of course, is at the very early phases, and Musk's claims will need to be taken quite skeptically from both a sociopolitical and also an engineering/scientific standpoint.
Elon Musk believes this is a positive thing.
