Today's technology is further most developed than compared to past 10 years. For this drastic change, Elon Musk is one of the reason. He developed and founded companies like Tesla Motors (Electric cars) and SpaceX (Fully reusable rockets). Now Elon also came up with Advanced Brain- Machine Interface called Neuralink which if completely implemented, speed ups our technology 10 times.
Today we are going discuss, what is Neuralink, why it is the ultimate change for our future world. It was started in 2016 and first publicly reported in March 2017 headquarters at San Fransisco. By July 2019, it received $158 Million in funds, (of which $100 Million from Elon).
After its founding, company has hired high profile neurologists all around the universities in the world. In simple words, Neuralink is nothing but a interface between today's digital world and our brain neurons. It is implantable brain-machine interfaces.

How Neuralink relates to brain?
|Electrode next to Neurons and their Impulses.|
Our brain contains 2 systems namely limbic and cortex. The Limbic system deals with Emotions and Memory and the Cortex system deals with our thoughts, consciousness and also languages. We can say Neuralink as a 3rd system for brain which collects our memory and also we can control wireless devices using it.

How it works :
|A casing that houses the wires & insulation for the module.|
Why it is a Game changer?
|The company will provide a dedicated app to learn skills.|
Musk also added that Neuralink can also be used to restore memory, speech and movement of a paralysed person. Neuralink may be the bridge that connects human beings to the next level of artificial intelligence.
