Elon Musk Neuralink to begin outfitting human brains

Neuralink,  the Elon Musk-led startup is working on technology that’s based around “threads,” which it says can be implanted in human brains with much less potential impact for brain-computer interfaces.

“Most people don’t realize, we can solve that with a chip,” Musk said to kick off Neuralink’s event, talking about some of the brain disorders and issues the company hopes to solve.

Neuralink really is about figuring out a way to “achieve a sort of symbiosis with artificial intelligence.” The aim is to use a robot that Neuralink has created that operates somewhat like a “sewing machine” to implant this threads, which are incredibly thin and will be capable of performing both read and write operations at very high data volume.

Neuralink did demonstrate its technology used on a laboratory rat this week, with performance levels that exceed today’s systems in terms of data transfer. The data from the rat was gathered via a USB-C port in its head, and it provided about 10x more than what the best current sensors can offer.

Elon musk plan is also that the electrodes implanted in the brain will be able to communicate wirelessly with chips outside the brain, providing real-time monitoring with unprecedented freedom of motion, without any external wires or connections.
