- Neuralink chip implants in the human brain.
- This technology will be very useful in terms of health.
- Human trial to begin soon.
Elon Musk Neurotech startup Neuralink Has taken a step further by testing brain-computer interface technology on humans. For this, Neurolink has posted a job for Clinical Trial Director. I.e. Neurolink brain-chip Ready to take research to the next level. Neuralink has previously tested monkeys and pigs. For this, a chip was implanted in a 9-year-old monkey. It used to play video games using only the brain.
It is trying to create a human-AI symbiosis using startup technology. Elon Musk said last month that its initial trial on humans would begin in 2022. The trial is likely to include people with paralysis. This will attempt to gain direct neural control of the computer cursor.
In addition, there will be an opportunity to participate in Neuralink’s first clinical trial. According to Musk, the chip is a coin-shaped device and will be implanted in the brain. The first purpose of Neuralink technology is to cure brain disorders and sick people.
Elon Musk says that brain and spinal problems can be solved with just one device. According to him, the capacity of Neurolink’s brain chip is very high. It can cure diseases like paralysis, hearing loss, blindness etc.
“In the future, you can save or replay your memories,” he added. These memories can be downloaded to a new body or robot body. Now this research is moving in the direction of human trial.
