Abstract: As we didn't evolve yet to connect our brains to computers, the fundamental problem is input/ output. We are already cyborgs but phones and computers only give us limited output in that regard. Particularly output is slow. We didn't evolve to have a communication jack. As Elon Musk suggests we have to build an interface that can read and write from your brain keeping security an important feature. A neural lace as an ultra thin mesh that will be implanted into the skull that is able to monitor brain functions and tap into your neurons. A digital extension represents a tertiary layer of intelligence with a high bandwidth connection that achieves a tight symbiosis between the limbic system and cortex. In that regard Neuralink helps to bridge collective human intelligence with digital intelligence. It is developing ultra high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. The aim is to make devices to treat serious brain diseases in the short-term, with the eventual goal of human enhancement.
