Tesla’s CEO and founder of Aerospace Startup Space X Elon Musk launched the Artificial Intelligence Startup ‘Neuralink’. The devices created by startup will be implanted in the human brains to merge biological intelligence and digital intelligence. In February, Musk also created a startup ‘The Boring Company’ to dig tunnel tunnels to avoid traffic.
Neuralink started with the private fund was informed in a news story of the Wall Street Journal, after which Musk confirmed through a tweet.The company said that Neuralink is in very early stages and it is registered as a medical research company.
More recently, Musk told a crowd in Dubai, “Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence.” He added that “it’s mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output.” On Twitter, Musk has responded to inquiring fans about his progress on a so-called “neural lace,” which is sci-fi shorthand for a brain-computer interface humans could use to improve themselves.
Even today many machines are used with human brain, which is used in many ways to correct numaric disorder. But such a brain surgery is used as a last resort because it is very rare for humans to survive.
Neuralink is working closely with a large number of scientific companies and institutes like Livermore’s National Lab, University of California and Timothe Gardner, the University of Boston etc. are working together in this experiment.Musk’s proposal goes beyond this. Although nothing is developed yet, the company wants to build on those existing medical treatments as well as one day work on surgeries that could improve cognitive functioning, according to the Journal article.
