Elon Musk is known for his electric cars, space company, and soon to be known for connecting our brains with computers. Musk is starting a cranial computer company called Neuralink.
Neuralink will focus on creating cranial computers, which are small electrodes implanted in ones brain by means of brain surgery according to USA Today. The electrodes could be used to treat brain disorders, depression, and could one day enhance brain function, all according to Los Angeles Times.
Here's a video from CNBC to better explain:
An interesting headline came across earlier from Engadget titled "Elon Musk's Neuralink will plug AI into your brain". Now as of now it'll be AI lite, but in the future Neuralink can certainly open the door for a completely AI enhanced brain. It could be like the "Limitless" pill in a way, but in a more 80's futuristic movie type of way.
According to that same Engadget article mentioned above, Neuralink is registered as a medical research company. Whatever it's registered as, this company has an amazing opportunity here, and maybe one day diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia will be done for.
Of course this will open the door for brand new, and far more deadly, cyber threats and the technology could be stolen and/or copied by the wrong people who will use it for the wrong purpose. Hell you never know, the US military and "deep state" could already have or be working on this technology.
At any rate, Elon Musk continues to be the visionary he is with his "do it" attitude, and he's already helped change the world. Also let's not forget, his company SpaceX picked up the slack when NASA's funds were slashed under Obama. Neuralink won't be the last company Musk launches, but it could be the best one he ever launched.
