A Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Tesla Motors, Mr. Elon Musk plans to launch Neuralink, he wants to get into humans’ head. Neuralink is a company enthusiastic to emerging a brain-to-machine interface to cure brain diseases like paralysis as well as memory problems, also help people to compete with robots when the artificial intelligence revolution makes human brains archaic. Mr. Elon Musk stated that the project will get accomplished after implementing tiny electrodes into the brain which permitting the things such as uploading memory, downloading memory, casual brain-to-brain communication. The president of the International Neuromodulation Society, Timothy Deer stated that the attempt may sound like science fiction, but it’s feasible. The neurotechnology Experts Welcome Musk’s arrival. The International Neuromodulation Society is a non-profit group of researchers as well as developers dedicated to using spinal cord stimulation to treat neurological pain. Mr. Timothy Deer said, “The cochlear implant was invented 20 years ago, and with electricity and the right frequencies targeting the brain, it allows people to hear”. He added, “That sounded impossible back then”.

Further, he said, “Ben Franklin didn’t know how to harness electricity, but he and others knew it was the key to something. Now, we know how to use electricity in very specific ways. It’s exciting to see how Mr. Musk might change how we think”. The Chief Executive Officer of Neuroelectrics Ana Maiques said, “Humans have been trying to mess with their brain waves to solve diseases since ancient times: The Romans and Greeks used to put electric fish on top of their heads to relieve pain”. Neuroelectrics is a company that develops non-invasive wireless brain monitoring and stimulation technologies. Ana Maiques is happy for Musk that he has entered the neuro tech field. She said, “With new technologies, there is a lot of room for startups and new companies”. The founder of Neurotechnology Industry Organization Mr. Zack Lynch said if Musk is successful then he will run into a swamp of ethical issues. Mr. Zack Lynch said, “Neuroscience raises questions about technology, art, entertainment, warfare, religion and what it means to be human”. The professor and co-founder of the National Core for Neuroethics Peter Reiner said that these considerations will be difficult to address in the short term. A best-selling author and robotics engineer, Daniel Wilson believes brain-to-machine interfaces will become common but that they will not diminish the humanity of their users. Daniel Wilson said, “People often look at human creations, and we call them unnatural”. Further, he added, “But from my perspective, there’s nothing more natural than a human being creating a tool. Bird’s nests or anything animals do instinctively always seems natural, but we consider it unnatural when a human uses a tool”.
