Elon Musk recently demonstrated a working Neuralink brain-machine interface device implanted on a pig, reported Tesmanian. Neuralink aims to solve brain-related issues with the brain chip called ‘Link’. Musk said the device could help solve memory loss, strokes, addiction, depression, anxiety, even monitor a users’ health.
Ultimately, Musk’s vision for Neuralink is for humans to merge with Artificial Intelligence (AI) – “Such that the future of the world is controlled by the combined will of the people of Earth … I think that that’s obviously gonna’ be the future that we want,” Musk stated.
