Neuralink – Elon Musk's Brain Machine Interface

#TheDevDoctor #Neuralink #ElonMusk #BrainMachineInterface

So today I want to talk to you about Neuralink, probably one of the lesser-known companies founded by Elon Musk. Neuralink is a company attempting to create the future of brain-machine interfaces. But what is a brain-machine interface?

A brain-machine interface is just a way of us being able to understand the brains signals, and then convert this into something that we can use manipulate our surroundings, such as a mobile phone or computer. In theory, the same interface could also be used to feed signals to the brain as well. Effectively augmenting our brains capabilities. Now there is a lot of examples of this functionality in science fiction, but is this something we could realistically do. Well, the answer is, yes, absolutely, but it won’t be easy.

  1. OMG I was about to make a video on this today!! It was interesting that you mentioned the possibility of using Neuralink for brain-based stimulation at the end. Of course, it would be a non-trivial task to discover the delicate balances of depolarizing/hyperpolarizing inputs for a brain-computer interface. And while that could be great for clinical applications it would also be quite questionable ethically…so I think just having it as a brain fitbit is ok for now XD

    Anyways, awesome video!!

  2. Oh, I don't know how I would feel about having the entire device placed in my skull…what happens if the battery swells and explodes?? a not too rare occurrence with Li-ion batteries.

  3. Well, I think we're still pretty far from what neuralink actually wants, I slightly doubt it will be possible….

    However, it may decrease costs in dbs devices, which still impede lots of patients from modern treatment

  4. I think Neuralink (not the fancy future and sci-fi stuff) addresses much bigger picture. It's garnering more public attention towards neuroscience and helping us develop more capable and accessible hardware than before. Which will ultimately helps us understand the brain with far more resolution.
    As someone said, know the problem before you try to find a solution.
