.@neuralink big reveal thread
3/ #neuralink
threads inserted into brain are very tiny, and robot's needle very tiny too

"electrodes are not stressful to put in, and device is wireless" - Elon Musk
"will be for sale in 1 year" - Elon Musk
other pic from live (action potentials):
5/ #Neuralink
"everything is information" , "information theory", "the world is information", "everything is in the statistics of [neural] spikes", "who focus on spike that's why we need to be inside the brain" - NL CEO
6/ #Neuralink
"there is a whole history of implants", "here the [electrode] need to be 60nm from the [neurites]" - NL CEO Jared Birchall
7/ #Neuralink
Device is wireless, very easy to install (done by robot), it is "read AND WRITE"!!
8/ #neuralink
"device controlled with mobile device, [like mobile phone, or else]" - Neuralink CEO
8/ #neuralink reveal
"there is a time for you and your brain to adapt and learn to use the device like a new limb" - CEO
clinical roadmap:
9/ #neuralink
"I would recommend the device to my family, the threads are so tiny, risk of damage greatly reduced when implanted, something like lasik" - neuralink chief surgeon
10/ #neuralink
Here is how the brain to computer device is implanted:
11/ #neuralink
More details on the device and manufacturing
12 / #neuralink
thread design
13/ #neuralink
"the device records and injects charge in the brain"
14/ #neuralink brain to computer device reveal
"speed of signal processing (900nanoseconds) is very fast so the brain doesn't notice", "can record >1000pixels", "better chips than anything on the market"
15/ #neuralink reveal
"even more advanced applications will be possible with more advanced devices", Neuralink is constantly improving the electronics, "we tap in the primary motor cortex for example, allowing paralytics to control computer"
16/ #neuralink reveal
"we can decode the movements for paralyzed people, even if you are just thinking about the movement, a paralyzed movement can move cursor on screen for example, patients can use this at home and control things"
17/ #neuralink reveal
device "can restore speech in patient, or even kung-fu, and that could allow a paralyzed patient to control game avatar and [with robotics and bionics], control of their own body", "we could also restore vision, sense of touch, ..."
18/ #neuralink reveal
"what we want is to tap into the rich collection of maps in brain, create rich visual feedback for the blind", "treat a variety of neural diseases like #parkinson, #dystonia, #ocd, #epilepsy, and many other diseases", "individualized"
18/ #neuralink reveal
The device apparently allows for telepathy of visual/cognitive representation and ??emotions?? i.e. from a person to another... like [artificially remembering places they forgot or don't know about].
19/ #neuralink reveal
"the neurons think the artificial signal is another neuron" , "there wont be direct advertising to the brain", "you can repay the loan with superintelligence", "a lasik like device" - @elonmusk
20/ 🔴#neuralink reveal
"at an advanced level with a neuralink, you will be able to communicate at complex meme levels, a new kind of conceptual communication, telepathy" - @elonmusk
21/ 🔴#neuralink reveal
"we dont want to eliminate suffering, it would be dystopia",
"the amount of data in and out of brain is a small amount",
"100 or a 1000 electrodes to 1 neuron is ideal, the more the better" - @elonmusk
