In 2017, Tesla/SpaceX/Boring Company business executive Elon Musk declared he was launching one more company, this one centered on finding the way to link the human brain to computers directly.
Neuralink, Elon Musk’s fourth and least visible company, can become a touch less close Tuesday with a live-streamed presentation regarding its technology to attach computers to human brains. You can additionally apply to attend the San Francisco event in person to listen “a bit regarding what we’ve been working on the last two years,” Neuralink tweeted Thursday.
We’re having an event next Tuesday in San Francisco to share a bit about what we’ve been working on the last two years, and we’ve reserved a few seats for the internet. Apply here: https://t.co/1VQsv4gAA4

Since Neuralink launched in 2017, data regarding its work and progress has been principally shielded from coverage. However, Gizmodo reported that Neuralink wanted to open an animal testing facility at the entry point last year. It was conjointly funding primate analysis at the California National Primate research center at UC Davis.
Neuralink, founded in 2016, is functioning in the simplest way to let human brains communicate directly with computers. Goals include quick transfer rates and fast responses; however, simply establishing a connection and determining the way to exchange valuable data presents vast challenges.
Recent reports claimed Neuralink had raised $39 million of a planned $51 million funding round. Neuralink has previously teased a product that might connect human brains to computers via a deep-rooted chip.
In November last year, Elon Musk told Axios that the technology would involve an “electrode to neutron interface at a micro level.”
And that’s essentially all we heard regarding Neuralink for two years till Musk tweeted in April 2019 that an update from the startup was “coming soon” — and now we finally have a specific date for when that update can happen.
