DARPA Grants $65 Million for Advanced Brain-Computer Interfaces

From U.S. to Fund Advanced Brain-Computer Interfaces – MIT Technology Review

Paradromics’s haul is as much as $18 million, but the money comes with a “moonshot”-like list of requirements—the implant should be not much bigger than a nickel, must record from one million neurons, and must also be able to send signal back into the brain. 

The US Department of Defense certainly wants to beat Elon Musk’s Neuralink at this game.
