Elon Musk’s company wants mind control over computers
Neuralink is developing chips and threads to enhance the brain — and treating neurological diseases is just the first objective
Neuralink, the Elon Musk-backed company seeking to build brain implants to communicate with machines, unveiled the microscopic products it has been developing since 2017 and said it hopes to begin trials on human patients by the end of 2020.
The secretive, 100-employee company revealed its vast ambitions in a Tuesday night presentation aimed at recruiting more experts. “We want to have the best talent in the world,” Musk said at the California Academy of Sciences.
