The secret society of artificial intelligence, whose ultimate goal is to fuse the human mind with the machine, was presented in detail. report by WaitButWhy Tim Urban in April 2017, then two years of (mostly) nothing.
This will change Tuesday, July 16, while Neuralink is organizing an event in San Francisco to "share some of what we have been working on for two years."
And the good news is that the event will be livestreamedso that the entire Internet can connect.
Beyond this tweet and this invitation, the company did not give further details about the event. The society website is rare as it has ever been, consisting of a list of vacancies at Neuralink and a brief description saying that the company "is developing very high throughput brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers". Even Musk himself, generally very talkative on Twitter, did not share anything beyond the retweet of the Neuralink tweet and the 2017 Urban Story.
But the event could be very interesting, judging by Musk's previous comments. In September 2018, Musk told Joe Rogan that Neuralink will have "something interesting to announce in a few months, it's at least an order of magnitude better than anything else; It's been over a few months since, but it's possible that it's the event of which Musk talked.
The 2017 Urban Report offered an extremely broad overview of what Neuralink is, but the details of what the company was actually doing were mostly missing. In general, Neuralink's short-term goal was to bring "something" to the market that could help treat some types of brain damage. But the goal of this short-term goal (in addition to helping humanity) was to fund the long-term goal, which is to advance the technology of neural implants to the point where the human brain would blend with a kind of artificial intelligence.
Given Neuralink's wide scope and general secrecy, it's hard to say what exactly are we talking about on Tuesday. But we are sure that it will be interesting.
