Elon Musk shows the new Neuralink device
Elon Musk, the head of Tesla and SpaceX, made an important introduction through the company Neuralink, which he recently owned.
Neuralink, the company founded by Elon Musk a long time ago and silently doing great work, is working specifically to establish an infrastructure that will connect the human brain to computers. Neuralink, working to bring people to a level where they can control computers, robots, or other electronic products with their artificial neural networks, came up with the last level they reached in the field in the presentation made by Musk recently. The new brain-machine connection product developed by the company is now directly referred to as “Link” and cannot be seen from the outside since it is much smaller than the first version and is no longer worn behind the ear. Link, which you can see in the photo above, is integrated into the human skull with a specially developed very sensitive robot, as shown in the drawing below. For now, we do not go deep into the brain, it is perceived from the surface. Link, which collects brain signals from here and can transfer it to other electronic systems/devices, is likened to a FitBit product by Elon Musk.
Link, which is still in the prototype stage and offers a daily battery life (to be charged with a magnetic charger), is on the road with many benefits. Musk states that with this implant, electronic devices (for example, smartphones) can only be managed by thinking. However, in our opinion, there is another benefit that is much more important. That is also health. The link explains that Neuralink can be used in the future to solve problems such as paralysis, blindness, memory loss, addiction, hearing loss, as well as anxiety and depression. This looks really, very important. It is also among the most remarkable details that the device can continuously monitor the human body and instantly report situations such as heart attack.
Elon Musk wants to start the true bionic human era with Neuralink
The infrastructure that is currently being tested on animals, which is said to begin inhuman clinical trials soon, looks really interesting. Musk also wants to combine this system with artificial intelligence and the human brain, and the distant future seems incredible.
