Elon Musk has recently developed a puzzling Neuralink brain-computer interface that is believed to revolutionize the human consciousness; however, the only major issue is that it would come at a cost. Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk has made it clear that Neuralink brain-machine interface is almost ready for testing. It is a direct cortical interface that would permit humans to reach higher levels of cognition and provide humans with an ability to compete with growing Artificial Intelligence (AI). The US military is also building a technology similar to it which could be misused in the future.
According to Musk, there are chances that AI robots could rule the world someday bringing the near-future concept to reality. The immortal AI could become a dictator whose rule we could never escape. The Neuralink project had the needle-like device inserted into the brains of the individuals which is quite a threat. According to Steven Woo the developer of Rambus, the Neuralink may have a lot of potentials but the risks associated with it also double. The human brain is not only complicated but also quite elegant. Thus, giving it the capability to store loads of data and carry out parallel computation all at low power. The body’s ability to move data from the brain to the outside world is extremely slow.
The speed can be achieved through Neuralink which can break the physical blockage linked with the eyes, mouths, ears, and hands. There are basic technological obstacles other than Neuralink’s goals that currently need to be addressed. One of the critical issues is the security and it needs to be designed such that the brain connected to the systems has its data protected from hackers. The implanted, closed-loop neurotechnology according to the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is being tested by the US military. The neurotechnology is led by DARPA. The present neurotechnology program is known as Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3). With this technology, implanted interfaces are used without any surgical implantation.
