Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has unveiled another high-concept project, one that he says puts humans on a path to “symbiosis with artificial intelligence.” In other words, allow them to control computers with their minds.

His start-up, Neuralink, said it has tested its elaborate interface of “threads” — which connects with a chip embedded in the skull — on rats and now wants to begin human trials as soon as next year. The company said the device could eventually be used to treat such neurological disorders as paralysis and blindness.
