Cloud brain interfacing

WHAT WE'VE READ FOR YOU - Cloud-brain interfacing: taking ‘cloud thinking’ seriously

Cloud technology will soon become as indispensable to our lives as water and electricity. Will human brains connect to the cloud? Yes, said computer scientist Ray Kurzweil in 2015. Elon Musk: “Challenge accepted.”

Cloud and machine learning technology are already having significant effects on the way we do business, manage processes and interact with each other. However, we’ve only just seen the tip of the iceberg if we compare how we’ve applied these technologies thus far with their enormous potential. Noted thinker Ray Kurzweil, known for his extremely accurate predictions about the future, believes that our own brains may be cloud-connected by the year 2030.

Indeed, visionary entrepreneur Elon Musk has already taken the first steps toward true brain/internet interaction. He has already transformed the auto industry and fledgling space industry, and rarely fails once he puts his mind to a task.

In 2017, Musk launched Neuralink Corp. with the goal of exploring and developing “neural lace” brain interface technology, which relies on AI to generate a cloud-based digital layer between the brain and the internet.
