Elon Musk Revealed Details Of Brain Chip Technology Neuralink
The head of the American companies SpaceX and Tesla, Elon Musk, told details about the work of another of his projects – Neuralink. In addition to the previously stated goals for the treatment of diseases of the Central nervous system, the company's developments, according to the entrepreneur, will allow you to hear sounds in ranges and frequencies that were previously inaccessible to the human ear, according to The Independent.
The main goal of Neuralink is to learn how to treat brain diseases using so-called "brain-computer" interfaces. Since 2016, when the company was founded, its employees have only once detailed their achievements – in July 2019. At the presentation, they told about threads thinner than human hair, which in the future are planned to be used to read information from the brain. They are expected to be implanted using a miniature robot.
Recently, in a series of tweets, Musk told a little more. In particular, the technology of Neuralink, according to the entrepreneur, will expand the range of sounds that a person can hear. Besides, Musk confirmed that implanted chips would be able to control the release of hormones. This way, among other things, you can manage your anxiety. The next presentation of the company's development opportunities is scheduled for August 28 this year.
It is expected that Neuralink devices will primarily be implanted in people who suffer from neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease. However, Musk hopes that eventually, the technology will allow people to compete with artificial intelligence.
