Neuralink: News

Neuralink is a company founded in 2016, owned by billionaire Elon Musk. The company claims that it is a team of talented people creating the future of brain interfaces. The company is focused on developing devices and technologies that expand human capabilities by allowing humans to interface with computers and machines using just thoughts and the neural activity they set off. The company is developing brain chip implants called brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) with the assistance of several high-profile neuroscientists from academic institutions. The company’s claims have been demonstrated numerous times. One popular public demonstration involved pigs and another involved a monkey interfacing with a computer to play pong, all through the implanted BMI. The promising demonstrations and Musk’s claims about Neuralink’s offerings have also drawn criticism from privacy advocates, neuroscientists, and reputable publications. In the short term, the company wants to ease iterating with machines for physically challenged patients. The company's long-term goal is to achieve “symbiosis with artificial intelligence,” Musk claims.
