Elon Musk’s Neuralink Will Detail Progress in Computer-Brain Interface

Neuralink, Elon Musk’s fourth and least visible company, will become a bit less secretive Tuesday with a livestreamed presentation about its technology to connect computers directly to human brains. From a report: Neuralink accepted applications from some folks to attend the San Francisco event to hear “a bit about what we’ve been working on the last two years,” but the rest of us can tune in online at 8 p.m. PT Tuesday. “Livestream details will be available on our website shortly before event start,” Neuralink tweeted Sunday. Neuralink, founded in 2016, is working on a way to let human brains communicate directly with computers. Goals include fast transfer rates and quick responses, but just establishing a connection and figuring out how to exchange useful information presents immense challenges. One possible approach involves an array of flexible probes inserted into the brain with a system resembling a sewing machine, an idea described by researchers reportedly associated with Neuralink. That’s a lot cruder than the organically grown nanotechnological neural laces you’ll find inside the brains of sci-fi characters, but it’s remarkable that the technology is even under discussion.
