Neuralink, Elon Musk’s start-up which is pioneering links between the human brain and computers, has raised $39 million of a planned $51 million funding round.
Two years ago, an SEC filing said that Neuralink had raised $29 million in a planned $100 million funding round.
The company’s projected links between the human brain and computers are aimed at increasing humans’ intellectual capabilities.
Last month, Musk said: “I think we’ll have something interesting to announce in a few months.”
According to Musk the Neuralink brain-computer interface “will enable anyone who wants to have superhuman cognition to have it”.
