Elon Musk tweeted about his 2016 tech startup and revealed that his Neuralink chip will allow humans to stream music directly to their brain! The sewing machine-like device could also help control hormone levels and relieve anxiety.
Elon Musk has recently made an announcement about his 2016 tech startup 'Neuralink'. He tweeted that his Neuralink chip will allow people to stream music directly to their brain. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO made a tweet about his mysterious startup that involves a brain-computer interface which will have a number of functions.
The Nauralink chip, according to him, could help manage hormone levels (which could be used for 'enhanced abilities and reasoning and anxiety relief').
In conversation with computer scientist, Austin Howard, Musk told the technology he is working on will allow people to listen to music directly from Neuralink brain chips.
A Twitter user asked Musk, "Can Neuralink be used to retrain the part of the brain which is responsible for causing addiction or depression? It'd be great if Neuralink can be used for something like addiction/ depression."
"For sure. This is both great and terrifying. Everything we've ever sensed or thought has been electrical signals. The early universe was just a soup of quarks and leptons. How did a very small piece of the universe start to think of itself as sentient?" replied Musk.
The technology will help humans to compete with advanced artificial intelligence.
The sewing machine-like device, according to Musk, will be able to help treat diseases like Parkinson's and 'the process of having the chip fitted will be similar to Lasik laser eye surgery'.
Last year, Tesla's CEO Elon Musk had introduced futuristic Cybertruck but he was left confused as the windows of his latest Cybertruck splintered right after he had called them shatterproof at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
