Elon Musk Is Releasing Details on His Plan to Unite Our Brains With AI

A few weeks ago, details leaked that Elon Musk had backed a brain-computer interface venture founded to allow humans to keep up with the advancements made in machine intelligence. The company – Neuralink – is still in the earliest stages of development. To that end, we don’t know very much about it (at all).

However, we aren’t entirely in the dark. We know a few things. For example, we know that the company’s ultimate goal is to develop a device (a brain-computer interface, to be exact) that could be implanted into the brain in order to augment (see: improve) human intelligence. It could allow us to store memories externally, learn new skills and languages in seconds, and bring an end to diseases like Alzheimer’s. Of course, such work will take time. But Musk hopes to expedite this development through his work.

For a meaningful partial brain interface, I think we’re roughly four or five years away. -Elon Musk
Shortly after details leaked, Musk confirmed his plan in a tweet (he is well known for unveiling ideas and key company details via short Twitter posts). In this same tweet, he also promised more details – details which would be coming in April courtesy of the website Wait But Why. Must stated, “Long Neuralink piece coming out on Wait But Why in about a week. Difficult to dedicate the time, but existential risk is too high not to.”
