What is Neuralink, Elon Musk’s plan to connect your brain to the internet?

Musk is not happy with electric cars, rockets trying to get to Mars, but also wants to add artificial intelligence to our brain.


Elon Musk announced a few days ago that he would announce the progress of his company Neuralink, the company it wants to use to transform people into superhumans by implanting small electrodes in the brain that allow them to charge and discharge thoughts.

Neuralink is currently developing high-bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect people and computers in an armed California laboratory that is registered as a medical research company. It is a medical research company whose technology is known as “neural adaptation”. Very few details are known, but after The Wall Street JournalNeural adaptation enables users to communicate directly with a computer without the need for a physical interface.

The ultimate goal of Neuralink is to offer a solution to patients with neurological problems. In a world where robotics is becoming increasingly relevant, Musk believes that a technologically driven human brain will give people the opportunity to “rest” with progress artificial intelligence.

The company is privately funded by Musk and he hopes to perfect the neural jack for human use. This is due to a series of electrodes that are implanted in our brain and then enable a wireless connection to computers. Thoughts and thus information can be uploaded and downloaded as desired. It is a process that Business insider describes how to “enable people to achieve a higher level of cognitive function” and act as an AI layer in our brain.

It seems that neural adaptation would enable new information to be loaded quickly without having to be learned (as in The matrix, but without the physical connection on the neck!). To do this, you also need to figure out how our brain stores information to load it in the right format.

It should be noted that studies on brain-machine interfaces (BMI) are not new, but take at least a decade. Although Musk decided to give them a real name and call them “neural lances,” that is, neural lances.

According to the Infobae portal, some members of the team led by Musk as CEO are already known, including professors, researchers in neurosciences, and engineers for electronics and computer science.
