Elon Musk's New Company Will Merge Human Brains With AI By 2021
Elon Musk’s new company, NeuraLink Corp., wants to merge human minds and artificial intelligence via brain implants. This plan is for Musk to fix disability, replace language and use brain implants to usher people into a telepathic world. The CEO wants the first part of this project to be done in 2021.
Neuralink, Musk's neurotechnology startup company, is aiming to bring to the market an outcome that helps people with certain severe brain injuries. All the brain damages due to stroke, cancer lesion and others are the causes of these injuries. In about four years, Musk said in an interview that the company will "communicate a concept to you, you would essentially engage in consensual telepath."
As humans, there are a lot of ideas in our head that our brain has to try to squeeze into an incredibly low data, which are called as speaking or typing. Musk said in an interview that if an individual has two brain interfaces, "you could actually do an uncompressed direct conceptual communication with another person." It’s nice that Musk, as the CEO of Neuralink, is getting involved. However, brilliant minds have already been working on different brain-machine interfaces, according to The Verge.
Along with Tesla and SpaceX, Neuralink will be Musk's third company. According to Business Insider, Musk's announcement about its new project on Neauralink comes just a day after Facebook's intentions to build a noninvasive sensor capable of letting all people type 100 words-per-minute handling only by brain waves. Facebook officials say that communicating directly with the human brain will be required for a future in which augmented reality glasses present virtual objects onto the real world.
As of now, brains implants require brain surgery. Nevertheless, Musk keeps saying that this brain-computer interface will be non-invasive. And because of this, people won’t be afraid to get through it. Despite the fact that brain implant will be difficult, the CEO still hopes that one day it will become a fairly accessible, affordable and common process.
