Neuralink – Machines Using Our Brain, Technology has Neuralink and More


Neuralink is a technology that can help humans interact with machines using their brains.

What Is Neuralink?

  • Neuralink is a device that will be surgically implanted into your brain, and with it, you’ll be able to communicate with machines and even control them.
  • It will also help study the brain’s electrical signals and arrive at solutions that can help cure various medical problems.

How We Will Talk To Machines Using Our Brain?

  • Elon Musk’s ambitious project of connecting the human brain to the internet to help control machines is almost at the stage of being released for commercial use.
  • More prominently known as Neuralink, the company will disclose more updates about the project on 28 August.
  • Which will give us an insight on when we can expect the technology to roll out and some more news on how it will be used.
  • Since Musk hasn’t officially confirmed a release date for Neuralink, I am sure many of you are curious about what it is and how it will change the way humans will interact with machines.
  • Not only that, Neuralink could push forward studies in fields of neuroanatomy and neuroscience by years.

What technology has Neuralink developed that is objectively useful?

  • NeuraLink spawned the Link, which connects electrodes to a wireless controller and power supply that can be mounted neatly onto a brain.
  • The Link utilises inductive power coupling to allow for overnight charging. While the wireless technology allows for wireless streaming of gathered neural data.
  • The current version of the Link has 1,000 neural channels. And each track is connected to hundreds of neurons, making it very difficult to detect individual neurons firing.
  • The first tech demonstration of the brain chip working involved. A machine that can install electrodes into brain matter while avoiding blood vessels.
  • The advantage of a Neuralink system is installing thousands of electrodes while preventing bleeding, something that can be catastrophic.
  • Another health benefit to such a system is the ability to automate a brain electrode system’s installation.
  • Thus helping to realise long term goals of making brain implants a “one-hour procedure done at a local clinic.”
