ELON MUSK SAYS NEURALINK MACHINE THAT CONNECTS HUMAN BRAIN TO COMPUTERS ‘COMING SOON’

Elon Musk has revealed his Neuralink startup is close to announcing the first brain-machine interface to connect humans and computers.

The entrepreneur took to Twitter to tell followers the technology would be “coming soon” – though he failed to provide details.

Neuralink was set up in 2016 with the ambitious goal of developing hardware to enhance the human brain, however, little about how this will work has been made public.

The startup’s website, which is advertising vacancies for 11 different jobs, describes the futuristic technology as an “ultra-high bandwidth” connection between the human brain and computers.

Mr Musk has frequently claimed the rapid rise of artificial intelligence poses an existential risk to humanity. Such an interface, he says, is essential if humans are to compete with such technology in the future.
