Elon Musk is making some big moves towards getting your mind inside of a machine, with The Wall Street Journal reporting that Musk has launched a new company called Neuralink, which is pushing the boundaries on something Musk teases as "neural lace technology".

Back in February, Musk said that humans can communicate at around 10 bits per second when typing on smartphones, but computers can talk to each other at trillions of bits per second. In order for the human race to begin trying to keep up with advanced machines will be a high-speed link, something Musk calls neural laces, between computers and our brains. Oh, is that all, Elon?

 

WSJ's sources say that Musk has taken a key role in Neuralink, and might even be in a leadership position. Neuralink co-founder Max Hodak confirmed the company is in operation, and Musk is involved, but it's early days for Neuralink.
