Elon Musk said that Neuralink will help cure autism and schizophrenia

Project Neuralink it looks more interesting.

Tesla CEO and SpaceX, as well as the famous popularizer of science , deals not only with developments in the field of space exploration and electric vehicles. He has no less breathtaking projects. One of such — this interface called Neuralink, about which we wrote on our portal. Recently, however, Mr. Musk made a very interesting statement about the new development. It turns out that Neuralink will help humanity to deal with autism, schizophrenia and other brain diseases.

How Neuralink will help fight diseases of the brain

In the last episode «artificial intelligence» Lex Friedman, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, was asked about the most exciting effects which it expects to receive from Neuralink. We briefly recall that the aim of the project is to develop a chip with support of artificial intelligence, which can be implanted in the human brain to record brain activity and, potentially, for its stimulation. If you are interested in this topic, we recommend . There appear regularly such news from the world of high technologies and not only. But back to Ilona. On the questions he answered:

About Neuralink I think initially it will help in the fight against a number of diseases and solve many of the problems associated with the brain. It can be anything, for example, autism, schizophrenia, memory loss. Because, as we know, a large number of people at a certain age there is a loss of memory. Parents can't remember their kids names, and the like.

This is a very laudable statement and I want to believe that Elon musk and his company will succeed. However, almost immediately after the release of the podcast, Musk criticized. And she came from quite an unexpected quarter. Namely, from the National autistic society of great Britain (NAS).

Autism is not a disease or illness and can not be «cured». Often people feel that autism is a fundamental aspect of their identity, — representatives of the NAS. The world health organization describes autism not as a disease but as a disorder of personality.

Illustration of what can be a Neuralink

Most of all, Elon Musk just made a mistake in the wording. But if you want, you can personally see the interview and make your own conclusions. We will get back to other important aspects, which were announced during the meeting.

Elon Musk also said that can be used for the treatment of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, and even Neuralink you can apply for the correction «critical damage to the brain or spinal cord». Like various injuries after accidents or stroke. However, the ultimate goal of Elon musk — the Union of human consciousness with . He believes that we will not be able to cope with «digital superintelligence». And if we can't become smarter than a supercomputer, it is better not «to fight, and to join in». Do you agree with the science educator in this matter? Express your opinion in the comments and in our .
