Hear about Elon Musk’s “Neural lace” technology that would connect computer to human brain
Hello fellas, welcome to technstuff.in !
Elon Musk the techie from Tesla and SpaceX CEO is all set to start new firm called Neuralink. According to report of Wall Street Journal, Neuralink aims to create grafts for human brain that can interface with computers. The Journal reported that the electrodes to be grafted, will allow humans to download and upload thoughts. The technology which do so is called “Neural lcae” according to Musk.
The company’s first goal is to implant electrodes which will help in treating epilepsy,Parkinson’s, depression and other neural disorders, Journal reported. Musk earlier this year gave a hint about merging of digital and biological intelligence, its here now.

Here is what he said,
Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence.
It’s mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output.
A high bandwidth interface to the brain would help achieve a symbiosis between human and machine intelligence.
Musk tweeted about this, you can check that out below,
Long Neuralink piece coming out on @waitbutwhy in about a week. Difficult to dedicate the time, but existential risk is too high not to.

Musk has not made an official announcement, but Neuralink was registered in California as a ‘medical research’ company last July, and he plans on funding the company mostly by himself, a person briefed on the plans told the Journal. Neuralink will help human brains to keep up with rising trend of Artificial Intelligence. It is not known clearly what implants will do, but Musk stated previously, that the thing really matters for humanity to achieve symbiosis with machines. Neuralink is hiring the leading techies in this field.
If you assume any rate of advancement in artificial intelligence, we will be left behind by a lot.
While proposing the solution to this he said “direct cortical interface” – that is creating the layer of A. I. inside the brain.
Below you can watch video from RECODE where Elon Musk discuss why he thinks “neural lace” computer brain interfaces will be important to develop as AI continues to advance.
