When it comes to reaching for the moon - there is one man that continually sets the benchmark for what defines entrepreneurship.
And that person in Elon Musk.
Musk wants to help solve the future of brain ailments with the mergence of AI - a way in which we can elect or opt into having artificial intelligence help them achieve their goals - in fact we already have this component with our computer and phone - what Musk wants to do is reduce the output/interface - and how it can be potentially embedded in humans.
To help paralysed people control devices and empower people with brain disorders enrich their lives, Elon Musk-led startup Neuralink has revealed tiny brain "threads" in a chip which is long-lasting, usable at home and has the potential to replace cumbersome devices currently used as brain-machine interfaces.
On Tuesday evening Neuralink, a company in which Musk has invested 100 million described how it wants to make inserting a computer connection into your brain as safe and painless as lasik eye surgery.
An they are looking for volunteers as early as 2020. The company claims the system will be capable of reading and writing vast amounts of information.
The company is seeking the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval to start clinical trials on humans in 2020.
The technology has a module that sits outside the head and wirelessly receives information from "threads" embedded in the brain.
