Elon Musk’s brain-computer company schedules reveal

Elon Musk’s brain-computing venture Neuralink has scheduled an event on Tuesday to “share” what it has been secretively working on since its start a few years ago.

Musk, who is also the chief executive of Tesla Inc. TSLA, +1.81%  and privately held Space Exploration Technologies Corp. and The Boring Co., late Thursday retweeted Neuralink’s announcement:

Neuralink’s bare-bones website has job postings that describe the company as developing “ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers” and currently building a team of “multidisciplinary experts.”

Most if not all posts requested future employees who were “resourceful, flexible and adaptable; no task is too big or too small.”

Musk confirmed plans for Neuralink in 2017 and last year, during his infamous appearance on The Joe Hogan Experience’s podcast, said he’d be ready to announce a new Neuralink product in a few months, and that “a best-case scenario” would be humans effectively merging with artificial intelligence.

Neuralink is thought to be working on brain implants that, at least initially, would help treat cognitive impairments and neurological diseases and, later on, shield humans from threats by intelligent machines.
