Elon Musk‘s neuroscience startup Neuralink has revealed the “dramatically simplified” design for an implant that aims to create brain-to-machine interfaces.


Neuralink recently demonstrated the implant alongside the robot that inserts it and several pigs that have the device installed. Musk shared updates of the implant, which Neuralink is developing to connect human brains with computer interfaces via artificial intelligence, in an online presentation last week. In the presentation, the entrepreneur and Tesla founder unveiled the new design of the chip, as well as, the full-scale surgical robot and a group of pig test subjects.
