Wait But Why Meets Neuralink

Regular readers know I’m a huge Wait But Why fan. Elon Musk is apparently also a fan and he has given Tim Urban (the blog author) tremendous access to learn about his latest venture Neuralink.

Neuralink and the Brain’s Magical Future may be the longest Wait But Why post ever, and that’s saying something. Carve out some time to read it. It breaks up into sections so read it over a couple of days. Just read it because it’s fascinating.

I like how he breaks Elon Musk’s general company strategy down to this:

elon-company-formula-1

Tesla and SpaceX already do this. Here’s the SpaceX version:spacex-formula-1

The blog post ultimately figures out how a BMI (brain machine interface) company fits this model. But in typical Tim Urban fashion, he zooms out and explains everything first.

It’s long, but read it anyway…
