Connecting Your Computer to Your… Brain?!
The head of SpaceX and Tesla wants to connect the human brain to a computer in the next four years!
Elon Musk will be launching “Neuralink”. This company will experiment with implanting electrodes in the brain, so that it can connect to a computer and “upgrade” like one. The device itself will first focus on helping those with brain injuries.
“The first use of the technology will be to repair brain injuries as a result of stroke or cutting out a cancer lesion, where somebody’s fundamentally lost a certain cognitive element,” said Musk. “It could help with people who are quadriplegics or paraplegics by providing a neural shunt from the motor cortex down to where the muscles are activated.”
