Elon Musk unveiled Neuralink back in July 2019 as a startup specialising in brain-computer interface (BCI). The premise is simple wherein numerous thin wires can be implanted in a brain to intercept signals being fired by a group of neurons. However, the presentation where Musk introduced the technology and talks about the possibilities is definitely exciting. Now, Elon Musk is gearing up to release new updates on the project.
Neuralink progress update coming in August
In last year’s presentation, Elon Musk said that the first generation Neuralink devices would be used to treat brain diseases such as Parkinson’s, before allowing people to “ultimately achieve a sort of symbiosis with artificial intelligence.” The next update on where the company has reached in its milestone will come in August.
