Besides famous companies like SpaceX or Tesla, Mr. Elon Musk has another mysterious startup, Neuralink with research on the interface between the human brain and the computer. The billionaire says the chip developed by the startup will allow wearers of the device to enjoy music with absolute precision when it is streamed directly into the human brain, instead of transmitted via headphones or devices. be different.
The information was confirmed by Musk when answering the question of computer scientist Austin Howard. By directly streaming music into the human brain, it solves the problem of audio interference due to signal processing, charging current induction, eartight tightness …
Moreover, he revealed that Neuralink “can help control hormone levels and use them to upgrade us (improve our abilities and reason, or reduce stress, …).
Since its inception in 2016, Neuralink has only had one presentation in 2019 on how the technology it is working on.
During the event, Musk said the startup was developing a ” sewing machine-like device ” to create a direct connection between a computer and a chip embedded inside the brain. According to Musk, the process of attaching a chip to the human brain will be similar to Lasik technology, laser eye surgery.
The sewing machine robot will attach super-thin “threads” to connect the human brain and the computer chip.
The technology will first be used to help people with brain diseases like Parkinson’s, but the ultimate goal of Neuralink is to perfect people with an advanced artificial intelligence.
Part of this project involves creating a neurosurgery robot, capable of placing flexible “fibers” in the brain to connect to a microcomputer chip grafted outside the shell. Brain.
The drawing in the research paper shows that a USB-C cable will provide the entire data bandwidth for the brain.
A research paper detailing the device also shows that a USB-C cable will provide “the entire data transfer bandwidth” to the user’s brain. There is not much other information about this project of Mr. Elon Musk.
On its website, Neuralink posts 11 vacancies, with roles from a mechanical engineer, a robot software engineer and a tissue specialist.
Earlier this month, Musk suggested that Neuralink’s chips could be used to treat depression and addiction by “retraining” the parts of the brain responsible for these conditions.
Tests have been conducted on animals and human trials were originally planned for this year, but details have yet to be announced. More information about this project will be revealed on August 28.
