Elon Musk for the first time shared the details of the Neuralink project in July of this year. to resolve says that nature.
In Lex Friedman's artificial intelligence podcast Tuesday, Musk talked about the most exciting effects he's had for Neuralink. Musk answered this question:
"I think Neuralink will solve many early brain diseases. From autism to schizophrenia, to memory loss, there can be many things. For example, everyone suffers from memory loss when they reach a certain age. Parents can not remember the names of their children and such things. "
Meanwhile, as part of the Neuralink project, Musk is attempting to create a system in which brain activity can be recorded and stimulated with a wireless device that can be inserted directly into the brain.
Although Musk's sense of medical autism is unclear, it should be noted that autism, as well as schizophrenia, is not a disease.
According to the website of the National Autistic Society operating in the UK; Autism is not a disease or disorder and can not be cured. Being autistic is often a fundamental aspect of people's identity. "
Schizophrenia by the World Health Organization as a serious behavior disorder He is identified.
Musk said that Neuralink, which is currently being tested on monkeys, can cure neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Musk said that, as part of the podcast program, Neuralink could also address critical brain or spinal cord damage.
In addition, Musk reiterated that human consciousness aimed to combine artificial intelligence with the following statements in his speech:
Neuralink aims to solve the existential risk associated with digital super-intelligence. We will not be smarter than a digital supercomputer, so if you can not beat them, join them. "
