Would You Let Elon Musk Put A Computer Chip In Your Brain?
Some people love him. Some not so much. However, one thing is clear about Elon Musk, there's a whole lot going on in the brain of his. And, speaking of brains, his next project in a line of many, involves your brain. He'd like to put a computer chip in it. How do you feel about that?
Why would Musk, who is already busy with his various other, potentially world-changing projects want to do such a thing? Well, for various reasons. CNN Business says "Musk hopes the implant, created by his brain-computer interface startup Neuralink, could one day help quadriplegics control smartphones, and perhaps even endow users with a sort of telepathy. Like existing brain-machine interfaces, it would collect electrical signals sent out by the brain and interpret them as actions."
Critics are concerned that Musk, who is also the CEO of both Space X and Tesla, may be adding yet another huge task to his already huge list of not completely finished projects. Other concerns range from safety, privacy issues, and even religious objections.
