Engineer and billionaire Elon Musk has shared in his Twitter account the details of the project of the interface Neuralink. He said that the installation of the chip in the brain is no more complicated than laser surgery for vision correction.
Those who agree to the procedure, then you will be able to listen to music directly from the chip, said Musk. He added that the chip will help people to control the level of hormones and this will give the opportunity to overcome anxiety. Musk hinted that Neuralink will help get rid of depression and dependency by “reprogramming” parts of the brain that are responsible for their development.
Previously, Musk has already said that the new technology will help people with neurological diseases, Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s, as well as expand the capabilities of ordinary users. He intends to tell more details about the project on August 28.
What is a Neuralink
The company has created in 2016. Was now held by only one presentation with a description of technology of neural interface. In July 2019 Musk said that the chips will be implanted in the brain using “sewing” robot surgeon that will connect them using the “string” implants to read information.
The implantation of the chip is fully automatic thanks to the work of
According to the description of the technology to the brain will connect the USB cable, which will provide a “full bandwidth transmission.” In 2020, was tested on animals. Experiments with the participation of the people in the company can start only after obtaining permission from the Ministry of health.
On the website Neuralink posted 11 vacancies for mechanical engineers, specialists in robotics and histology, as well as other areas. The Musk said that the company need people with experience working on wearable devices and smartphones.
