When your child is born in the not-too-distant future, the telecom corporations will come after you and insist that you implant their chips in your brain! telecom firms will no longer compete on the basis of selling SIM cards, but rather on the basis of neuro chips installed in our brains. Are you curious about what I’m talking about? Then you’ll need to learn about a technology known as Neuralink.
Day by day, technology is forging new ground. From 2G to 5G, from landline to smartphone, communication has changed drastically during the last two decades. These smartphones, however, will be outdated by 2030. Nokia CEO Pekka Lundmark recently stated at the World Economic Forum that 6G will be available by 2030, effectively putting smartphones to sleep. “Communications in the future will be made directly through the brain, using ‘Neuralink’ Technologies,” he said of the telecom and communication sector’s future. What is this ‘Neuralink’ exactly? Let’s have a look at how it works.
A neural interface device that would be directly implanted in a person’s brain, recording and possibly stimulating brain activity. A lot of research is going on into this technology. This research was supported by Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX. He also highlighted that Neuralink has made significant progress. A man may communicate with technological devices using only his brain with the help of Neuralink. This means that the brain can do everything from turning off the lights at home to operating the computer without the use of a keyboard or mouse. Many researchers believe that this technology will be possible by 2030.
How does it work?
The human brain will be implanted with a small device (a chip) that will connect to the nervous system. The technology turns the electrical vibrations produced when the brain thinks into information and uses it to control an external object. Elon Musk has already made significant progress in this area. His company even presented it to the world with a video in which,
A monkey used a neural network to play a video game without using his hands. Initially, the monkey uses the joystick to play video games. After some time, the monkey’s brain had been implanted with neuralink, and it was able to play the game without using the joystick. While playing the game, Neuralink records the responses in its brain. After that, even though he did not use his hands, the monkey was able to play the game using his brain. With Musk and Lundmark’s strong statements and facts, it appears that smartphones are nearing their end.
