Languages... who needs them? These are the thoughts that go through Tony Stark's Elon Musk's mind, so the Tesla and Space X founder and his think tank have devised a device that would plant a neural plant inside of your head.

Elon Musk wants to end languages with brain implants |

Musk's grand plan would make AI assistants of today look like they were made in the stone age, for one big reason: languages. These brain implants would push through "uncompressed" communication between people, so that you could upload your thoughts instantaneously between your brains - without language barriers. It sounds fantastic, doesn't it?

During a recent interview, Musk said: "If I were to communicate a concept to you, you would essentially engage in consensual telepathy. There are a bunch of concepts in your head that then your brain has to try to compress into this incredibly low data rate called speech or typing. If you have two brain interfaces, you could actually do an uncompressed direct conceptual communication with another person".

Even people with severe brain injuries due to stroke and cancer lesions, could communicate with machines or people within 4 years thanks to micron-sized devices made by Neuralink Corp, which Musk owns. He said that it would take between 8-10 years for people without disabilities to use it, but regulatory red tape will get in the way at first. Neuralink has been registered in California as a "medical research" company, with Musk seemingly self-funding the company that wants to see computers merging with our brains.
