Artificial intelligence is getting stronger and so are the people. Elon Musk has recently launched a nanobiotechnology company named Neuralink with the aim to create a brain-computer interface that would enable human brains to utilize advancements and computational powers of AI. This brain-computer interface should have a form of a so called “neural lace”; a flexible electronic mesh that would be physically interconnected with a brain and actively influence neural functioning. A prototype of such device has already been constructed (Syringe-injectable electronics). In the first phase of this project Neuralink will explore possibilities of brain-computer interfaces in alleviating brain-related diseases such as epilepsy, depression or Parkinson’s disease. Only later on the company plans to focus on enhancement of human mental capabilities with help of merging it with AI.
