Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are no longer a thing of science fiction. The technology is already available to some patients to treat conditions like epilepsy and blindness. Soon, projects like Elon Musk’s Neuralink could make BCIs available to a broad consumer audience.


However, with the technology’s widespread adoption has come serious concerns about the safety and ethics of brain-computer interfaces.


The potential for brain injury, technological dependence and social stigma have experts of all kinds discussing the harm that BCI technology may cause.

The current state of BCI technology

Brain-computer interfaces – also called brain-machine interfaces – include any technology that

A Chinese start-up has started testing what it calls a “micro-invasive” brain-computer interface (BCI) in pigs, and monkeys are next, making the company one of China’s leaders in this emerging technology that has a wide range of application, the company told the Global Times.

BCI is a critical bioscience sector that could collect and analyze human brains’ electronic signals. “Micro-invasive” BCI technology is a hybrid between invasive BCI – which implants chips directly into the brain’s cerebrospinal fluid by surgery – and

At a Friday event, Elon Musk revealed more details about his mysterious neuroscience company Neuralink and its plans to connect computers to human brains. While the development of this futuristic-sounding tech is still in its early stages, the presentation was expected to demonstrate the second version of a small, robotic device that inserts tiny electrode threads through the skull and into the brain. Musk said ahead of the event he would “show neurons firing in real-time. The matrix in the matrix.”

And he did just that. At the event, Musk showed off several pigs that had prototypes of the neural
