Neuralink is a neurotechnology company founded by Elon Musk that is actively developing a brain-machine interface to ‘connect humans and computers.’ He envisions a future where humans’ brains are connected with Artificial Intelligence (AI) via a coin-size ‘Link’ chip implant, that will also enable people to control their cell phones and any computerized system.

The coin-size ‘Link’ brain chip device that is under development could solve a variety of brain-related issues one day. Musk said the device could help solve memory loss, deafness, strokes, blindness, addiction, depression, anxiety, even monitor a users’ health to warn if they are about to have a heart attack. The interface could also help return mobility to paralyzed individuals through artificial limbs. "It could, in principle, fix anything that's wrong with the brain," he said. 

The Link chip features around one thousand tiny electrode threads that are threaded by a surgical robot inside the brain to stimulate neurons. In August, Neuralink demonstrated a working Link device implanted on a pig. The chip was actively recording signals from its sensory area in the brain that is linked to the nerves on her snout (video below).

 

 

Musk said the purpose of the presentation was to recruit employees that would like to help develop the system. – “We’re not trying to raise money or do anything else, but the main purpose is to convince great people to come work at Neuralink, and help us bring the product to fruition; make it affordable and reliable and such that anyone who wants one can have one,” he said.

The neurotech company is searching for talented engineers who would like to help create the futuristic brain-implant that could revolutionize the medical and technology industry. – “If you’ve solved hard problems with phones/wearables (sealing, signal processing, inductive charging, power mgmt [management], etc), please consider working at engineering@neuralink.com,” Musk announced in July, “Solving high-volume, high-reliability, low-cost production problems is especially valued.”

Today, September 19, Musk asked engineers who applied at Neuralink to let him know if their job application might have been ‘overlooked’ by the company. – “If you feel Neuralink might have incorrectly overlooked your resume or declined to make an offer, please lmk [let me know] in comment below,” he wrote via Twitter. “A prior track record of exceptional achievement in engineering *is* required, but *no* prior experience working on the brain or human physiology is required,” he added, “We will teach you what’s known about the brain, which is not much tbh [to be honest].”
