Who needs earbuds when you can simply listen to your favorite songs in your head? Elon Musk recently provided more information about the mysterious Neuralink. Neuralink will reportedly be able to provide users with “enhanced abilities and reasoning” and allow them to stream music straight to their brains. The Neuralink Corporation was originally founded in 2017 by Elon Musk and other contributors. The corporation held their first press conference in 2019 and introduced the Neuralink brain-machine interface (BMI). According to a paper published in August 2019, Neuralink has built a machine that is capable of inserting arrays of very flexible electrode threads into the human brain.... Read more...
During his record breaking Jeopardy run, it was hard not to think that James Holzhauer's brain was, at times, like a computer. The dude is smart. Through his Neuralink company, Elon Musk is envisions turning brains into actual computers, in a sense, through tiny implants as part of a revolutionary brain control interface (BCI). This is wild stuff, though not all that surprising—Musk hinted at what his Neuralink venture was working on when he founded the company in 2017. It was always known that the end goal was to connect the human brain to artificial intelligence (AI), though the details were sparse. Why? In Musk's words, the "existential risk is too high not to." In other words, if we... Read more...
A funny thing happened earlier this week. SpaceX founder Elon Musk went on Joe Rogan's podcast, drank a little whisky and puffed on a blunt rolled with weed and tobacco, and the Internet went bananas. Shares of Tesla, the electric vehicle company Musk co-founded and currently serves as CEO, fell afterwards. Musk smoking weed made plenty of headlines, but that wasn't the most interesting part of the podcast. What grabbed our attention was when Musk teased an imminent Neuralink announcement, along with his thoughts on fusing human brains with a "high-bandwidth" interface, effectively merging us with artificial intelligence (AI). In fact, that's really the purpose of Neuralink, yet another company... Read more...
Elon Musk is taking the next step to connecting everyone to the Borg Collective. The SpaceX and Tesla CEO has set up a company called Neuralink, with the company’s end goal being to connect the human brain and artificial intelligence. Neuralink is still in the very early stages of development and currently has no public presence. Musk promises that more information will be available next week on the website Wait But Why. He tweeted, “Long Neuralink piece coming out on @waitbutwhy in about a week. Difficult to dedicate the time, but existential risk is too high not to.” The website’s manager Tim Urban recently remarked, “I was given the lowdown about it earlier this month and have been rapid-fire...
