Elon Musk’s Startup “Neuralink” To Connect Human Brains & Computer

Elon Musk’s Brain Tech Startup “Neuralink” To Raise More Funds

Neuralink – A brain computing startup founded by Elon Musk, has raised $39 million of a 51 million funding round, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

However, it’s unclear whether the funding round included Neuralink and Elon Musk employees or it was from traditional venture capital investors. Two years before, the business said in a filing that it had raised $27 million of a planned funding round of as much as $100 million.

In 2016, Neuralink was registered as a California medical research company and has quietly run its operations from San Francisco since then. Neuralink’s employees include high profile neuroscientists from top-notch universities and also has a contract with University of California laboratory, Davis to conduct research on primates.

Possibilities are there that the venture is working towards finding ways to link human brains to computers. Back in March a paper was published affiliated with Neuralink which discussed a technique for implanting electrodes into rat brains.

Upon questions raised to Musk regarding Neuralink objectives, he replied by saying that something notable is likely to be announced officially by them in upcoming months.

If Neuralink succeeds in connecting humans brain to computers & machine interface – Could this lead to the technological singularity?

It is one of the most awaited projects of Elon Musk, with the scientific community waiting eagerly for an announcement from the Neuralink team throwing some light on their objectives and progress made.
