Watch Elon Musk’s Neuralink presentation

Electric vehicles, rockets... and now brain-computer interfaces. Elon Musk's newest venture, Neuralink, aims to bridge the gap between humans and artificial intelligence by implanting tiny chips that can link up to the brain. At a press conference on July 16, Neuralink's ambitious plans were detailed for the first time, showcasing a future (a very distant future!) technology that could help people deal with brain or spinal cord injuries or controlling 3D digital avatars.
Elon Musk says Neuralink plans 2020 human test of brain-computer interface:

  • I am very excited about Neuralink, it could give us, people with chronic debilitating illnesses, our lives back. Please hurry as am tired of being in pain and being housebound/bedbound. Thank you to all those at Neuralink and Elon as well, who will probably live to 858 years old lol Does not compute ...

    • Nothing about this project has anything to do with development of AI. This is to create an interface in human brains that lets us control AI. To ensure that we stay forever the masters over AI. Nothing contradictory about his goals.

There’s a lot of opportunity & possibility for corruption, especially after seeing companies like Apple & FB violate a lot of people’s privacy by collecting data & analytics, Tracking locations, Ad Targeting, etc. Don’t blink you might miss it 👁 Red or Blue , You choose.

  • APPARENTLY CNET LIKE DELETING COMMENTS FOR NO REASON AT ALL.... Elon Musk a hypocrite, I'm sorry. I'm not saying he's not a brilliant businessman. He's great at selling innovative ideas but that's his job!!! Just how safe is Neuralink? Well the trials will start at the end of next year. I didn't watch the whole video. Idk if they mentioned, the procedure itself. They're goin to drill holes inside of your brain to release tiny threads that connect to a processor and Bluetooth to use your phone. That sounds okay, but when he mentions that these threads will grow eventually and "take over people's brains" his exact words, not mine. He said it should be benign as far as a full take over, and he's hoping for "symbiosis" of AI and humans. That's not very reassuring if you ask me. I read that he said it could help alot with patients that have paralysis, it might make them to be able to move again, or it can make you telekinetic with people around you, and also the monkies that have it are capable of running computers. Then there is the chip Neuralink currently has and is improving on called the N1 Sensor. The old one doesn't give you much range as it is connected to USB. The other will be completely wireless, it will also clean and amplify your brain signals. Ok so we're going have to WIFI connected to our brains without the possibility of hackers?? As far as the AI implants, what's the guarantee that it won't turn on you at some point and try to enslave you? What if it's whole agenda is to control and make you a slave to whatever is coming? (AI Overlords) I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I believe in the facts and they're there all out there. If they start forcing these chips they're gonna have to kill me man.

  • Amazon just put out a show called The Feed. Yah... this idea does have great positive potential but the negatives makes this something that can not be at all safe. Even 1 thing going is literally game over in every sense. Anything can be hacked so security to the human brain/body is completely at risk. I can not see this being safe unfortunately.
