Watch Elon Musk’s Neuralink presentation

  • Published on Jul 17, 2019
  • Electric vehicles, rockets... and now brain-computer interfaces. Elon Musk's newest venture, Neuralink, aims to bridge the gap between humans and artificial intelligence by implanting tiny chips that can link up to the brain. At a press conference on July 16, Neuralink's ambitious plans were detailed for the first time, showcasing a future (a very distant future!) technology that could help people deal with brain or spinal cord injuries or controlling 3D digital avatars.
    Elon Musk says Neuralink plans 2020 human test of brain-computer interface:

    This is absolutely insane! It's the Matrix in real life. Elon Musk is Iron Man but infinitely smarter.

    Elon owns:
    Tesla, SpaceX,boring company ,neuralink ...and many more.
    I'm pretty sure he already has neuralink inside his head doing all of this simultaneously !

    Goals Neuralinks:
    1. Device with the ability to read and collect the nuronal synapse of a specific area in an individual.
    2. Device with the ability to map the enuronal synapse and filter the physical responses of human thought.
    3. Device with the ability to use machine learning (AI) to the physical responses and mapping of the synapse.
    4. Virtual device with the ability to represent the neuronal synapse on human thinking Virtual response.
    5. Execution and differentiation of Physical and Virtual Responses for Neuronal interfaces (Mind control on machines, Mind control virtual recreation).

    A decade a ago steve jobs was the man of the future,now is elon musk,now we always safeguard our computer from being hack in future we have to safeguard our brains as these strange people will hack our mind,in other words people has to really learn religion,which has thought us safeguard ourself from the jinns,all this technology are all jinns all have souls,,,5g,6g all gonna control us,the only way to be free from this u got to really have to have strong faith in religion,or migrate to a 3rd world country lol

    I'm not saying Elon Musk is THEE ANTICHRIST (Revelation 13:16), I'm just saying......
    #1. Nahum 2:4 is a 2,000 year old Bible prophesy about Electric vehicles being the dominant mode of transportation in the SEVEN YEAR TRIBULATION PERIOD.
    Brought to mankind BY, Elon Musk.
    #2. Nueral link, interface between the human mind and Quantum computers. Which most likely be the MARK OF THE BEAST, or something that goes along with it. Tesla symbol maybe being the mark itself. Just thinking. Compliments of: Elon Musk
    #3. Starlink, covering the Globe with wifi, which serves the purpose of wrapping Earth in a NET/WEB, which will be merged with the Nueral link (mark of beast), Quantum computers, Electric vehicles, everything electric and will be used to hunt down and force the M.O.T.B. upon all or have killed those who refuse it. Compliments of: Elon musk
    Amos 5:19-20 KJVS
    As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. [20] Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it? (Sounds like Starlink, watching, listening, seeing, knowing).

    Not saying He is thee Antichrist, but wow.........

      @Moon Dawg
      Thus why our arms use internal wires. This'd also be good for improvement of technological augmentation. Better control of robotic arms for those in need of them for any reason. Possibly even just a plug in the back if the lower brain for those who want to have a modular system.

    • Moon Dawg

      @Surux Strawde yeah that is not really comforting either. They could still hack it and read my brain. Not to mention all the data they will collect and sell.

    • Surux Strawde

      It doesn't go backwards it only records. Besides, the brain isn't backwards compatible with any computer, it works on electrochemical signals, not binary.

    The idea of direct wireless interaction between the mind and technology has been depicted so many times in popular entertainment for decades, since before most of us were born. Watching Elon present it like it’s simply a business meeting bullet point is just surreal. I’m not really sure why they’re even trying to pretend that their impetus behind this was for use in medical care. This is going to change the world drastically very soon.

    they really better open source the software it's gonna run because else companies will do bad stuff with the data they can read or write (just like facebook/google/microsoft, but on a bigger scale and also being able to implant impulses to do stuff in their favor)

    Question is Elon and his team taking this technology themselves eg , are they being implanted? or is it down to others to do the testing? if the answer is yes then fair do's. However the guy narrating stated a perfect reason as to why not to do this. Then again would you like some Xtra RAM in your brain. EEEEELON...
