Elon Musk is never short of innovative and transformational ideas. The founder of Tesla is known and famous for founding SpaceX and Tesla Motors. At first, his ideas may sound crazy but from Tesla, Hyperloop transportation, artificial intelligence and more, Elon Musk is one of the world’s most respected technology leaders.
Late last year, he came up with one of the craziest ideas you see in sci-fi movies. Musk says he will soon announce a Neuralink product that can make anyone superhuman by connecting their brains to a computer. Musk said back then that Neuralink would increase the data rate between the brain and computers and will give humans a better shot at competing with AI.
“I think we’ll have something interesting to announce in a few months … that’s better than anyone thinks is possible,” the Tesla CEO said on “Joe Rogan Experience.” “Best case scenario, we effectively merge with AI.” The Joe Rogan Experience is a free audio and video podcast hosted by American comedian, actor, sports commentator, and television host Joe Rogan.
However, in an interview with UK Express, fellow and distinguished inventor of Steven Woo said the Neuralink cutting-edge technology could come at a cost. “Even though Neuralink could have good potential, the significance of the risks is still there,” Woo added. He went on to say that, Musk’s “mind-boggling’ AI computer has ‘potential for abuse and security will become an even more critical issue.” You can read the rest of the article here
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has announced that soon enough we will be able to access his Neuralink brain-machine interface. The direct …
Elon Musk himself has also warned that humanity might also be outnumbered by the AI robots what one day might even rule. Security will become even a more serious problem, according to a fellow and distinguished inventor of Rambus, Steven Woo. AI could even become “an immortal dictator from which we could never escape” as the SpaceX founder even described.
Neuralink Brain-Machine Interface Might Not Be As Safe As Elon Musk Said
However, the Neuralink project which he is seeking for includes a needle-like device being inserted into the skull of a person resulting in a similar threat. Even though Neuralink could have good potential, the significance of the risks is still there according to the fellow and distinguished inventor of Rambus, Steven Woo.
He said that the human brain is both complex and elegant and it has the capability to store incredible amounts of data and massively parallel computation all at extremely low power. “But the body is relatively slow in terms of its ability to move data between the brain and the outside world. Neuralink offers the potential to move data ‘at the speed of thought,’ breaking physical bottlenecks associated with our eyes, ears, hands, and mouths.”
While there are a lot of mind-boggling possibilities, outside of Neuralink’s goals there are some fundamental technology hurdles that will need to be addressed to make this a reality.

Elon Musk is known for his wildest ideas and bold claims who is behind the car manufacturer Tesla and Space exploration firm SpaceX has some crazy ideas for the future. Where some of his ideas include a futuristic transportation system known as Hyperloop a human colony on Mars helped by the affordable space travel linking our brains to computers and developing microsatellites to deliver low-cost internet access masses to the others.
Musk almost sold Tesla to Google in 2013 for $11 billion according to the Ashlee Vance the author of Elon Musk-Tesla, SpaceX and the Quest for the fantastic future, at that time Tesla’s future was looking bleak and Musk reacted to Google’s co-founder CEO Larry Page for a takeover.
At the age of 17, Elon Musk moved from South Africa to Canada along with his mother Maye, his sister Tosca and brother Kimbal where he spent two years studying at Kingston’s University in Ontario.
Musk made his guest appearance on a popular show The Simpsons in 2015 in which the episode titled with The Musk who fell to the Earth as he voiced to Springfield in a spacecraft and gets inspiration from Homer Simpson.
When he was still studying at the University of Pennsylvania, Musk and his roommate Andeo Ressie, rented a large house and converted it into a night club so that they could earn money to pay rent. As it was a small setup but it could hold 100 people according to Vogue.
In a piece published in the Time Magzine, Iron Man director Jon Favreau admitted that Robert Downey Jr turned to Musk to help him in learning of mannerism of a tech-savvy of a billionaire who had a cameo in the movie of Iron Man 2.
Elon Musk is running a school at SpaceX headquarters called Ad Astra which is Latin to the Stars and the school is attended by Musk’s own kids along with the children of the SpaceX employees. Musk originally founded Ad Astra to provide his children with schooling that exceeds traditional metrics on all the relevant matter through the unique project-based learning experiences.
According to the Ars Technica Report, the kids work together in the teams and there is a heavy emphasis on the Maths, Science, Engineering, and Ethics. There is no problem grade system at the school as Ars Technica reported that as many as 400 families applied in 2007 though the school has only 50 students.

Elon Musk has said his brain-computer interface is “coming soon”.
The SpaceX and Tesla CEO tweeted the news after being asked what was happening with the neurotechnology company Neuralink which he founded in 2016.
It is believed Neuralink aims to create a small chip that would connect a human brain to a computer. The aim of the device would be to upload and download thoughts although Musk has not given any more details about the product or when it will be created.
In an interview last year with Axios, Musk said the technology would involve “a chip and a bunch of tiny wires” surgically implanted into the skull.
“‘The long term aspiration with Neuralink would be to achieve a symbiosis with artificial intelligence and to achieve a sort of democratization of intelligence,” he told Axios.
He said this would mean that intelligence is not only held by governments and large corporations: In theory all humans could have a higher level of artificial intelligence.
“I believe this can be done…It’s probably on the order of a decade,” he said at the time.
The SpaceX CEO has previously urged caution regarding the development of artificial intelligence, saying it could potentially spiral out of control.
Musk believes another use of the Neuralink technology could be to reduce memory loss or help people with spinal cord injuries.
