Neuralink, founded by Elon Musk, is developing a brain-computer interface that would allow communication between different parts of the brain. The interface is implantable and wireless, and has a battery that can be charged wirelessly. The company is still in the early stages of development and is recruiting neurosurgeons to help perfect the technology.

  • 00:00:00 The goal of Neuralink is to create a whole brain interface, which would allow for communication between different parts of the brain. There are already a few successful applications for the technology, such as restoring vision and controlling a mouse cursor. The first two applications that Neuralink is targeting for humans are significant because they cover a range of needs that are difficult or impossible to meet with current methods.
  • 00:05:00 Elon Musk's Neuralink "Show and Tell" event showcased the development of a neural interface device that could restore vision to people who are blind or have lost muscle movement due to a injury. The device is implantable and wireless, and has a battery that can be charged wirelessly. Safety is a major concern for the team, as contact with brain tissue must be avoided without causing injury. The R1 surgical robot was also demonstrated, which is capable of inserting thread-thin electrodes into a moving brain without causing injury.
  • 00:10:00 The video shows a demonstration of a surgical robot that is being used to insert 64 threads into a patient's brain. The robot is much more efficient and less invasive than traditional neurosurgery, and the primary goal is to make device upgrade or replacement just as easy as it is to initially install. The company is also trying to recruit neurosurgeons, as the technology is still in its early stages and requires a lot of skills.
