Elon Musk spoke on Joe Rogan’s podcast about his company Neuralink
Musk said the firm will have a brain implant ready ‘within a year’
The chip could fix brain injuries that result in aliments of the body
It would be inserted to the skull by a robot that connects electrodes to the brain
Musk also noted that it could become a full brain interface in just 25 years
Speaking on Joe Rogan’s podcast, the billionaire said his company Neuralink will have a version of its brain implant ready ‘within a year.’
Musk explained that the process involves removing a chunk of the skull, robots then insert electrodes into the brain and the device into the hole, with only a small scar left behind.
Neuralink, which was founded in 2016, is designing tiny flexible ‘threads’ that are ten times thinner than a human hair with the goal of treating brain injuries and trauma.
The tech tycoon also revealed that the technology could develop into a full brain interface in just 25 years, which would enable ‘symbiosis’ between humans and AI
