Elon Musk schedules live demonstration of Neuralink brain technology


On Sunday, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Must issued a press release and invitation to a live demonstration of Neuralink. Neuralink is an artificial intelligence technology with medical implications. The event is expected to be available for live stream. 

Musk, announced in a July tweet that he “Will show neurons firing in real-time on August 28. The matrix in the matrix,” he emphasized.

He has been teasing developments in the technology for over a year. There is speculation that the event may be a live demonstration of neuron activity featuring a human.

In February, Musk was calling out Neuralink’s closest competitor. Claiming that Neuralink needed to do “an unequivocally better job than Utah Array, because the method they use, “has severe drawbacks.” 

What is Neuralink?

As its name implies, the role of neuro-activity is a vital part of Nueralink technology. The long-term goal is to obtain human symbiosis with artificial intelligence (AI).

Musk founded Nueralink in 2016. And in July 2020, Microsoft invested $1 billion in the AI company. Musk’s company is developing an electronic implant designed to interface directly with a human brain.
