Elon Reeve Musk is the founder, CEO, CTO and chief designer of Space X. The fifth richest person in the world with a net worth of 7,370 crores USD. Musk is also a co-founder of Neuralink firm. The firm that is working on a brain-computer interface that will allow one to stream music directly to their brain.
Neuralink was founded in 2016, since then it has only organised one public presentation about ‘how technology will work’ but in 2019, Elon Musk said that Neuralink was working on a device that is “sewing machine-like” which provides a direct connection between a brain-chip and a computer.
According to Musk, Neuralink technology will enable users to listen to music directly from their chips that mean they will not need any external medium for the same. If this is possible, then it will be a great future in the field of technology. Last year, Neuralink showed a brain-on-chip that contains tiny threads which will help the users suffering from paralysis and brain disorders to perform certain tasks.
This idea of brain-chip is not new in the tech world, many scientists have been working on this for decades. According to Musk, the Neuralink chip will eliminate the need to wear headphones.
Musk is hiring an engineer for his brain-computer interface company and this he tweeted that “If you’ve solved hard problem with phones/wearables (sealing, signal processing, inductive charging, power management, etc), please consider working at email@example.com, additionally “Solving high-volume, high reliability, low-cost production problems is especially valued.”
Till now, Neuralink doesn’t make any announcement about its official plan but there will be a progress update by the firm on August 28.
There are many questions on how this technology would work, one of the questions is that could we hear a song simply by thinking of it? We hope that we will get the answers soon by Neuralink on August 28.
