Gordo Posted July 12, 2019 Report Share Posted July 12, 2019 (edited) I had not previously even known about this company (forum search showed nothing for 'Neuralink' either), nor have I done any digging to see what is known about the project... So I have no idea what to expect but the headlines certainly peak my interest. I can't wait to see what they reveal on Tuesday! https://www.marketwatch.com/story/elon-musks-brain-computer-company-schedules-reveal-of-new-machine-2019-07-12?mod=mw_theo_homepage Elon Musk’s brain-computer company schedules reveal By Claudia Assis Published: July 12, 2019 3:25 p.m. ET Neuralink is developing ‘ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers’ Bloomberg News/Landov Elon Musk speaking at the Tesla Model Y unveiling in March. Elon Musk’s brain-computing venture Neuralink has scheduled an event on Tuesday to “share” what it has been secretively working on since its start a few years ago. Musk, who is also the chief executive of Tesla Inc. TSLA, +0.26% and privately held Space Exploration Technologies Corp. and The Boring Co., late Thursday retweeted Neuralink’s announcement: Neuralink ✔@neuralink We're having an event next Tuesday in San Francisco to share a bit about what we've been working on the last two years, and we’ve reserved a few seats for the internet.

Neuralink is thought to be working on brain implants that, at least initially, would help treat cognitive impairments and neurological diseases and, later on, shield humans from threats by intelligent machines.
