Neuralink Device Demo
Neuralink the technology is designed to help paraplegic people control computers through implantable devices in their brains and could one day vastly improve the way people think and communicate. Elon Musk, founder of Tesla Motors and the world’s richest man, has made a breakthrough by unveiling a flexible thread that will connect the human brain directly to a computer. Speaking at an event in San Francisco, Musk said the chip will help preserve and improve our own brains and eventually achieve some kind of symbiosis with artificial intelligence.
The serial entrepreneur’s previous ventures included the revolution in online payment transactions with PayPal, the transformation of the electric car industry with Tesla, and pioneering work in private space travel. We know pretty much everything about Tesla and SpaceX, but how much do we know about Elon Musk’s Neuralink launch – up?
The ambitious start-up seems to be working on something straight out of a science fiction film. While Musk is currently working in a range of different fields, including artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics, Neuralink considers the cake the most ambitious of all.
Tesla founder Elon Musk has founded tech startup Neuralink to build an implant that connects the human brain to an artificial intelligence computer interface. Neuralink is a company founded by ElonMusk in 2016 that is researching how human brains can be connected to computer interfaces.
If this technology were to be approached, neurosurgical robots would implant tiny, flexible electrodes or threads into the human brain. These filaments detect and record electrical signals in the brain, record them and transmit them to the body.
The innovative Neuralink startup was founded in 2016 and develops so-called “brain-machine interfaces” – advanced technologies that integrate digital systems into the human brain. This has the potential to create a new generation of intelligent devices, such as smartphones, tablets, computers, and even robots, that connect the brain to external devices, creating a “brain-machine interface.”
Elon Musk has revealed the development of Neuralink for the first time in three years, and although the technology has been top secret until now, we can only start scratching the surface of what is out there. Neuralink’s immediate goal is to create a direct cortical interface to upload and download thoughts from the human brain to an external device such as a smartphone, tablet or even a robot.
The company’s goal is to develop a brain-machine interface that uses an implantable part that could stimulate and observe brain functions. Scientists studying the brain say Neuralink machines probably do not have the potential to solve brain abnormalities or alter the developmental architecture of our brains. Neuroscientists instead believe that a more likely scenario for Neuralink is a device that could help us navigate. Tesla was launched in 2016 after more than a decade at SpaceX and is now in use in the US for more than $1.5 billion.
Musk took to Twitter to show off his company’s latest product, the Tesla Model S electric car, to thousands of followers.
In several tweets, he called the device, which is inserted into the human brain by a terrifying robot, ‘truly transformative’ and ‘magnificent’. The tiny brain implant, called a brain-machine interface (BMI), connects a person’s brain to an external device and allows them to control a computer.
He also stepped out of the shadows to reveal that he has created a wireless implantable device that can theoretically read the mind.
As word spread that tech billionaire Elon Musk is backing a company called Neuralink, a secret brain-link project has emerged about his progress, including a robotic sewing machine that connects to rat brains using thread-like sensors. Musk has touted the start-up he founded in 2017 as a way to ward off what he sees as an existential threat: artificial intelligence (AI) that surpasses human intelligence. Neuralinks has achieved the goal of making the intelligence of man and machine work in symbiosis.
Musk and other company executives said they would seek Food and Drug Administration approval to begin wiring human test subjects as early as next year.
The secretive company, which is developing a brain-machine interface, is showing the public for the first time that the technology has been developed. Neuralink aims to develop the ability to detect the electrical activity of the brain to treat brain disorders, maintain and improve the human brain.
The goal is to eventually begin implanting devices that allow paralyzed people to control phones and computers. The first major advance is a flexible thread that can damage the brain less than the materials currently used in brain-machine interfaces.
According to a white paper attributed to Elon Musk and Neuralink, the thread also creates the ability to transfer large amounts of data. He recently gave the green light to his new project, which aims to create computer-brain interfaces.
Founded in 2017, the company is experimenting with minimally invasive brain implants that use the thread to reduce damage to surrounding brain tissue compared to today’s implanted devices. Implanting a smaller, less obstructive brain into patients is exactly what Neuralink’s products are aiming for. Musk has spoken out against the unnecessary size of most current implants, saying smaller chips could be used in their place.
