This startup is building a brain-reading device to take on Elon Musk’s Neuralink

Last year, Elon Musk came on stage to talk about his ambitious brain-interface company Neuralink, and sold people dreams of controlling an iPhone using only your brain. Now, the company has a new competitor in a New York-based company called Neurosity, which released its own device called Notion today for developers. The company was founded by AJ Keller, a former Boeing employee, who worked on robots, and Alex Castillo, an ex-Netflix engineer in 2018. Last year, the company showed off its Notion...

These new implants are helping us link our brains to computers

Cyborgs are no longer science fiction. The field of brain-machine interfaces (BMI) – which use electrodes, often implanted into the brain, to translate neuronal information into commands capable of controlling external systems such as a computer or robotic arm – have actually been around for some time. Entrepreneur Elon Musk’s company, Neuralink, is aiming to test their BMI systems on a human patient by the end of 2020. In the long term, BMI devices may help monitor and treat symptoms of neurolo...

Inside the science behind Elon Musk’s crazy plan to put chips in people’s brains and create human-AI hybrids

Elon Musk founded neural tech company Neuralink in 2016. This year the company showcased the technology it's developing — a chip connected to wires which fan out into the human brain, capable of both recording brain activity and stimulating it. Musk has extolled the technology saying it could be used for people with neural conditions and disorders, but has also predicted it could enable human "symbiosis with artificial intelligence." He also boasted that the technology had experienced limited ...

Team Linked to Elon Musk Outlines a System to Monitor Brain Activity

The process, described in an unpublished academic paper, is an important step toward a potential system to plug human brains directly into computers. The paper’s five authors have been employed by or loosely associated with Neuralink, a small and secretive brain computing startup founded by Musk, according to people familiar with their work and public information. The authors dub their system a “sewing machine” for the brain.

50 years after the computer mouse was demonstrated, we look at its future

On Dec. 9, 1968, Douglas Engelbart gave the first public demonstration of a computer mouse. Today we look at the device’s history, as well as futuristic concepts for computer interfaces. Of Mice and men Douglas Engelbart of the Stanford Research Institute is largely credited as the inventor of the computer mouse. His research on the mouse and making interacting with computers easier began in the early 1960s. NASA helped fund the research by 1966. Tail to tale Engelbart presented his cursor-movin...

The 1995 Anime “Ghost in the Shell” is more relevant than ever in today’s technologically complex society

When the anime movie Ghost in the Shell was released in 1995, the world wide web was still little more than a novelty, Microsoft was just beginning to find its GUI-feet, and artificial intelligence research was in the doldrums. Against this background, Ghost was remarkably prescient for its time. Twenty-three years later, it’s even more relevant as we come to grips with advances in human augmentation, AI, and what it means to be human in a technologically advanced future. Ghost in the Shell ...

Facebook's secretive consumer hardware group tested a prototype device that appears to actually let you 'hear' through your skin

Starting as early as January 2017, the staff of a secretive Facebook initiative called Building 8 have been working to make the world's first brain-computer interfaces, devices that essentially put the functionality of a laptop in your head. The initiative includes at least two major publicly reported projects: a noninvasive brain sensor designed to turn thoughts into text and a device that essentially lets you "hear" with your skin. That second project is being led by Freddy Abnousi, a cardio...

You can control this new software with your brain, and it should make Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg nervous

Tesla's Elon Musk and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg each aim to create the world's first brain-computer interface — devices that put the functionality of a laptop in your head. But those devices would require invasive brain surgery and are unlikely to become available in the immediate future. In the meantime, a startup called Nuro could beat them to the punch with a simpler piece of software. Two minds may be better than one, but one mind connected to millions of others would be infinitely supe...
