Nanobiotechnology company founded in 2016 by Elon Musk and Max Hodak developing brain-machine interface to connect humans and computers based in San Francisco, California. Neuralink develops devices aimed to help people with brain diseases and injuries, with a long term vision of developing devices that merge humans with AI.
NeurolinkNeuralink’s President Max Hodak credited a 2003 paper in PLOS One written by a team led by Miguel A.L. Nicolelis at Duke University, the first to show macaque monkeys using their brains to make robotic arms reach and grasp, as laying the foundation on which their work builds. Hodak previously did research in the Nicolelis lab at Duke.
