We already talked about the fact that on August 28, the planned presentation of the company Neuralink where its founder Elon Musk talk about the latest advances in technology chipping of the brain. Meanwhile, American billionaire couldn’t help but comment on Twitter and said about one of the potential possibilities of this technology.
Specialist in computer technologies Austin Howard (Austin Howard) asked about the Mask, will it be possible one day to use the interface Neuralink for listening to music. According to the Mask the opportunity really appears.
Yes – Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 19, 2020
Thus, the chip of the sound wave will be sent directly to the brain, bypassing the ear and vestibulocochlear nerve responsible for transmitting auditory impulses as well as impulses originating in the vestibular division of the inner ear.
Sound transmission based on the technology of bone conduction today is no surprise, but the sound transmission directly through the stimulation of neurons is really something new.
We still know little about what specifically works company Neuralink. Its only the presentation took place in 2019, where Elon Musk showed a chip that will connect to the brain with the help of special threads. The installation of these threads will be the robotic apparatus, similar to a large weaving machine.
According to the Mask, the early version of the device Neuralink will help to rebuild neural connections in people who have ailments such as Parkinson’s disease.
In a conversation with another user, Elon Musk confirmed that with the help of technology Neuralink it will be possible to control the production of various hormones, e.g., oxytocin and serotonin, reducing stress levels in people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
For these purposes, the Mask need fresh brains. Chapter Neuralink announced via Twitter about looking for new talented engineers, tech savvy sound.
