Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface (BCI) venture called Neuralink. The company, which is still in the earliest stages of existence is centered on creating devices that can be implanted in the human brain, with the eventual purpose of helping human beings merge with software and keep pace with advancements in artificial intelligence. These enhancements could improve memory or allow for more direct interfacing with computing devices.
