Elon Musk is good at multitasking. He is the CEO of Tesla, owner of Twitter, and chief engineer of SpaceX — a company with an ambition to colonize Mars. But one of his most ambitious projects yet is Neuralink, a brain-computer interface company that Musk founded in 2016. The company's goal is to develop a technology that allows humans to communicate with computers directly through their brains.
The human brain, often referred to as the most advanced computer in existence, is responsible for regulating our bodies, storing vast amounts of information, and processing complex thoughts and emotions. But what if we could tap into its full potential? That's exactly what Neuralink is trying to achieve.
Elon Musk says his brain-chip company will make the paralyzed walk and the blind see. But Neuralink still struggles to secure clinical-trial approval and has faced criticism for its animal-testing practices. Despite these challenges, the company has made significant progress in developing its technology.
