Elon Musk: Update to Neuralink computer-brain tech is coming soon

Elon Musk has said an update on the progress of his Neuralink implant devices, which connects a computer directly in to the brain, is coming next month. 

Neuralink aims to develop ultra-high bandwidth brain-computer interfaces, and in a tweet Musk said 28 August will see the first update to Neuralink since announcing the brain-machine interface project in 2017. 

When Musk revealed Neuralink, he hyped the technology as an answer to the threat of artificial intelligence, which he said presented an “existential risk” to humans.
