Depression or Addiction? Elon Musk has a Solution!
These days, so many people suffers from depression or addiction for something. It’s so hard to overcome from these situations. Sometimes it’s taking too much time. A new invention from Elon Musk; a brain chip can help you for these situations.
Elon Musk has recently shared more information about his enigmatic Neuralink brain-computer chip project, saying it could be used to help treat addiction and depression. He created Neuralink in 2016, though few specifics have been released about how the system will operate. Neuralink announced in a 2019 presentation that it had developed a "sewing machine-like" device capable of connecting brains directly to computers, after receiving more than $158 m ( £ 125 m) in funding.
More details on Neuralink will be released on August 28, Mr Musk said on Thursday, prompting Twitter user Pranay Pathole to ask the billionaire businessman what future capabilities could be expected. When he asked about the brain chip, Elon Musk replied:
“For sure. This is both great and terrifying. Everything we’ve ever sensed or thought has been electrical signals. The early universe was just a soup of quarks and leptons. How did a very small piece of the universe start to think of itself as sentient?”
Neuralink will be used in the short term to treat brain disorders like Parkinson's, while the technology's long-term goals are to enable humans to interact with artificial intelligence.
According to leading scientists in the area of brain-computer interfaces, such an eventuality isn't totally far-fetched. A 2019 Royal Society report outlined how neural interfaces could allow people to communicate in silence by reading each other's minds.
