Elon Musk believes humans must link up with machines in order to fight the inevitable onslaught of artificial intelligence. In a recent tweet, the SpaceX and Tesla CEO said technology from his latest company, Neuralink, will be'coming soon.' Musk has yet to offer up any more details on when or how the tech will come to fruition. Neuralink has previously teased a product that would effectively connect human brains to computers using a tiny implanted chip.

Elon Musk's $27m plan to plug the brain into a computer

Daily Mail

Elon Musk's controversial startup to crate a'Matrix' interface to plug the human brain directly into a computer has raised over $27m, it has been revealed. Called Neuralink, SEC filings have revealed the scale of the firm for the first time. It has raised the $26.96 million of a technically still-open funding round that could grow to $100 million - although Musk took to Twitter to say the firm is no longer raising cash. Elon Musk's latest company Neuralink is working to link the human brain with a machine interface by creating micron-sized devices. Neuralink was registered in California as a'medical research' company last July, and he plans on funding the company mostly by himself.


Elon Musk's Neuralink may have tested interfaces on animals

Daily Mail

Elon Musk's Neuralink may be testing its'Matrix' style computer-brain interfaces on animals, it has emerged. Devices being developed by the firm are designed to give people advanced mental abilities, which Musk says will let humanity keep up with future'god-like' AI systems. City planning documents submitted by the company reveal plans for'a small operating room for in vivo testing, and a small room to house rodents.' It is not known what the tests involved, whether they actually took place, or if they are on-going, as Neuralink has refused to comment on the matter.

Elon Musk's Latest Target: Brain-computer Interfaces

#artificialintelligence

Tech billionaire Elon Musk is announcing a new venture called Neuralink focused on linking brains to computers. The company plans to develop brain implants that can treat neural disorders -- and that may one day be powerful enough to put humanity on a more even footing with possible future superintelligent computers, according to a Wall Street Journal report citing unnamed sources. Musk, a founder of both the electric-car company Tesla Motors and the private space-exploration firm SpaceX, has become an outspoken doomsayer about the threat artificial intelligence might one day pose to the human race. Continued growth in AI cognitive capabilities, he and like-minded critics suggest, could lead to machines that can outthink and outmaneuver humans with whom they might have little in common. In a tweet Tuesday, Musk gave few details beyond confirming Neuralink's name and tersely noting the "existential risk" of failing to pursue direct brain-interface work.
