(ORDO NEWS) — According to experts, in a few years people will no longer need speech. Communication will take place on a different level – digital.
The Neuralink company was founded in 2017 with the aim of creating technologies for connecting the human brain to a computer . To implement this idea, Musk received a large funding of $ 27 million. 12 anonymous investors have invested in this project. Later, Elon Musk announced that Neuralink was starting experiments to test these technologies on humans.
Currently, little is known about the degree of implementation of such an ambitious project, it is only known that scientists are actively working on it. At least, Musk regularly reminds of this in various interviews. Now he says that the connection of the computer to the human brain will occur as early as next year.
According to Elon Musk, at the first stage, the microchips developed by the company will be implanted into the skull itself and will be designed to treat various injuries and diseases of the brain.
At the next stage, according to Musk, the microchips will have advanced functionality. The person doesn’t have to talk at all. The information transmitted during communication will be highly accurate. What will happen to the spoken language is unknown. It will be reminiscent of the famous film “The Matrix”, when knowledge of a foreign language can be loaded directly into your head.
The founder of Neuralink believes that the company will need 5-10 years to implement this idea.
Some researchers fear that such an innovation will make a person vulnerable to artificial intelligence, which Elon Musk himself is so afraid of? After all, what “Neuralink” is doing now is very similar to the creation of the Matrix, in which only brains connected to virtual reality will remain of a person.
