I have just been reading about Elon Musks new company Neuralink. He claims that it is possible to increase the communication speed between humans and computers by using direct brain interfaces which could help in exchanging large volumes of information in a short period of time. The speed with which humans generate written information is just a few bytes per second. But computers communicate with each other at a very fast rate.
So my doubts are,
Is such a thing even possible? I have this question because I believe that our brain does not understand binary.
It took me a few whole minutes for typing this question. It was not because of my inability to type fast. It was because I had to plan with precision, each sentence I type to avoid grammatical errors and to communicate my question well (and to ensure that my question does not get hit with a series of downvotes). So how does increasing the communication speed between my brain and the computer actually guaranty that I will type this question faster than I'm typing now?
If such a thing is actually possible, can you explain (in brief) how will such a method work?
