Since Elon is so publicly facing with his other ventures, it seems like Neuralink kinda gets pushed under the rug, but as time passes, it’ll be fun to see how the company grows and what societal awareness they raise. I’m most excited about Neuralink’s future than any other company. The prospect of a remedy for Alzheimer’s and/ or decreased limb functionality is super inspiring.
Put yourself in the circumstances of someone who has decreased ability to walk, limited ability to grab objects in daily life, or has severe paralysis. It’s no guarantee Neuralink will develop a fully functional remedy, but…
Despite how cool or frightening that may sound, that’s not the only thing Neuralink is working on.
This Elon Musk company is not as well known as Tesla or SpaceX, but they sure will be if they keep making progress like this. If you aren’t familiar with Neuralink, the quick few things you need to know are:
Here’s my reaction to the video Neuralink released on their company YouTube page:
This isn’t the first time Neuralink’s demonstrated being able to safely implant a Neuralink into animals. …
Would you insert a chip in your brain to play video games at triple or quadruple speed? Despite how cool or frightening that may sound, that’s not the only thing Neuralink is working on.
This Elon Musk company is not as well known as Tesla or SpaceX, but they sure will be if they keep making progress like this. …
Elon Musk thinks it’s a good idea to merge Neuralink, Tesla, SpaceX, and the Boring Company by creating an Elon Musk Conglomerate called ‘X.’
In this article, I’ll discuss how this idea came to be, write a little about Neuralink and investing, and also Elon’s vision for the future of being a multi-planetary species.
For simplicity’s sake, let’s imagine Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway or Alphabet, the parent company of Google. Elon Musk responded to a tweet from Dave Lee suggesting he create a holding company that includes these companies and future endeavors. …
Earlier this week, Max wrote on Twitter, “People don’t get just how close we are to true high bandwidth neural interfaces. From a world of atoms to a world of bits within — not long!” In responding to a follow-up question, Max said we may shift to a world of bits within a decade, but it “depends on how much we want it.”
For those who are unfamiliar, neural interfaces are a connection for communication between…
I wanted to share thoughts about predictions I’ve heard related to Neuralink: these range from Neuralink giving us the ability to stream music directly to our brains to Neuralink developing a full cyborg robot-human.
The likelihood of the second prediction coming true depends on how you define a cyborg. If you’re thinking half-man, half-machine with robot arms or legs and therefore super-human strength, that seems pretty unlikely in my opinion. However, if you’re thinking Neuralink could enable us to have super-human brains, I think that’s pretty likely.
Neuralink is working on the tech that will support building super-human brains, but…
In this article:
- Elon talking about pricing
- Cost of Neuralink implant vs other procedures
- How that pricing is possible
Elon discusses the future pricing of a Neuralink implant- high cost at the beginning, decline rapidly, an d then likely settle around a few thousand dollars (similar to the cost of LASIK).
Since Elon references the cost of LASIK eye surgery, I decided to LOOK into some pricing stats. For those who don’t know, LASIK is a surgery often performed with a robot and laser.
There’s lots of variation…

- Neuralink job openings
- Elon clip
- Growth/ stats and inspiring goals
One of the primary leaders of the BrainGate team, Dr. Leigh Hochberg was interviewed about a month ago. During that conversation, he discussed some of the goals of their research and some info related to the trials they’re conducting. Dr. Hochberg also mentioned BrainGate is working alongside Neuralink. When asked about whether there are companies investing big dollars in this space vs academic research money, Dr. Hochberg indicated the Division of Clinical Research at the Massachusetts General Hospital has an agreement…
Welcome to the first post of Neura Pod, a series diving into details and related topics of the company: Neuralink, Inc.
Humans already have supercomputers at their disposal: their phones. The way we interact with our phones is relatively super slow- the interface we have available is most commonly our two thumbs.
As Neuralink reiterates on their technology, these interfaces can be used in many different ways- some that are inspiring, some sci-fi-esque, and ways that some may consider creepy. I am most excited about the potential to eliminate the negative effects of brain disorders like Parkinson’s Disease or Alzheimer’s.
According to Neuralink President, Max Hodak’s personal website, “Neuralink is working on, “developing the world’s most advanced brain-machine interfaces” or devices that send and receive information back and forth between a brain and a computer. Because of the order of magnitude or two difference in speed, these devices will have many applications in the future. People may be able to stream movies directly to their brain or play video games in a more intense way than with augmented reality (AR) headsets or virtual reality (VR). With a fully developed device, humanity can continue progress of merging man with machine.
