Elon Musk to create CYBORG with Neuralink

In an hour-long interview in Joe Rogan’s podcast, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that his neuro-tech company Neuralink is going to launch the first product that can make any brain function as a superhuman AI. San Francisco headquartered Neuralink is developing implantable brain–machine interfaces (BMIs) or Cyborg that could improve memory or allow for more direct interfacing with computing devices.

Neuralink Corporation is an American neurotechnology company founded by Elon Musk in 2016.  Elon Musk claims that the moto of Neuralink is a human enhancement and the technology which will be able to merge the computers with the human brain. Thus, it will obtain a symbiotic relationship between the human brain and the Artificial Intelligence.

“ If your biological self-dies, you can upload into a new unit. Literally. It will enable anyone who wants to have superhuman reasoning and intelligence."
– Elon Musk

Developing such implantable brain-computer interfaces(BCIs) or cyborg will be quite a challenge and to be on top of the game, Elon Musk needs to stay ahead of Neuralink's competitors with a heavy focus on applied engineering. BCIs must incorporate features that are thousand times better than the existing interfaces with no surgery, no aesthetics and definitely no drilling holes in the skull.

Elon Musk further points out that there has been a significant advancement in the field stating,
“I think Neuralink will have something interesting to announce in a few months that’s at least an order of magnitude better than anything else, probably better than anyone thinks is possible.”

In early 2017, he made a jaw-dropping revelation stating that robots will disrupt our job scenario and that there’s nothing much that can be done and the competition between the countries with the most sophisticated AI will be the reason of World War 3. Probably to him, the merging seems like a better option which might give a human a better chance of surviving. “The merge scenario with AI is the one that seems like probably the best. If you can't beat it, join it,” Musk said.
