Elon Musk’s Neuralink Offers A Glimpse Of The Future

Recently, you may have read that Elon Musk’s neurotechnology company Neuralink is very close to testing brain implants on humans. For many years researchers have been working on similar technologies that will improve the lives of humans through AI. The immediate target market for Neuralink is paralyzed people. Neuralink is developing a robot to perform the implant operation of a interface in the brain with a high level of precision.  The robot inserts fine threads less than the size of a hair into the brain. Another piece of hardware is a Bluetooth receiver that fits behind the user’s ear and communicates with a phone. Sensors read the electrical activity in the brain.
