In late August 2020, Elon Musk held a press conference on Neuralink, a brain-machine interface start-up, where he used the "three little pigs" to demonstrate the company's neuron-reading brain implant. 

One of the pigs has had a coin-sized computer chip in its brain for two months. A screen above the pig streamed the electrical brain activity being registered by the device. This move demonstrates an early step toward the goal of curing human diseases with similar types of implant.

Founded in 2016, Neuralink aims to implant wireless brain-computer interfaces composed of thousands of electrodes in the most complex human organ to help cure neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's, dementia and spinal cord injuries and ultimately fuse humankind with artificial intelligence.
