Billionaire entrepreneur, Elon Musk is teasing his followers about his next bold move: hooking up brains with computers.
On Tuesday, he tweeted that he’s preparing to launch Neuralink, a new venture that the Wall Street Journal reported would focus on “neural lace.”
According to the report, the new technology could link human brains with computers, without a physical connection, by implanting tiny electrodes into the brain. It could enhance memory and cognitive powers by effectively merging human and artificial intelligence.
In his tweet, Musk said that more details about Neuralink would come “in about a week.”
Speaking at a conference earlier this year, he said, “we are, all of us, already cyborgs, you have a machine extension of yourself in the form of your phone and your computer and all your application. By far you have more power, more capability than the president of the United States had 30 years ago”.
