How Neuralink wants to change the worldUnlike AI solutions that have come before Neuralink, Musk wants to achieve this symbiosis with minimal invasion.

Using threads also brings the possibility of being able to transfer a higher volume of data. The white paper Elon Musk & Neuralink claims that the proposed system could include as many as 3,072 electrodes per array distributed across 96 threads.Advertisement
