Elon Musk wants to put a chip in your brain

in #technology7 months ago (edited)

Sooner or later, chips will be implanted in humans. With this chip, your smartphone can work with your brain. The brain and the chips inside it communicate directly with each other and start working without thinking about commands.

Neuralink, the brain chip research start-up of the world's richest man, Elon Musk, is getting ready to start experimenting with humans soon. This will allow paralyzed patients to control smartphones with their brains faster than their fingers.

Neuralink’s first clinical trials with a small number of human patients would be aimed at treating paralysis or paraplegia, the company’s head surgeon Dr. Matthew MacDougall said.

This chip has been put on monkeys and pigs

"First Neuralink product will enable someone with paralysis to use a smartphone with their mind faster than someone using thumbs," Musk tweeted last year, reinforcing the company's goals. "Later versions will be able to shunt signals from Neuralinks in brain to Neuralinks in body motor/sensory neuron clusters, thus enabling, for example, paraplegics to walk again."

In a live interview at the Wall Street Journal's CEO Council Summit, Elon Musk explained the company's plans for 2022. During this, Elon Musk spoke about the company's plans for 2022. During this time, Elon Musk said his company will be ready to implant chips in the human brain within a year. He said Neuralink works well for monkeys and we are doing a lot of testing with it. Having been tested on monkeys, it can be emphasized that they are very safe and reliable.

Neuralink device will prove to be a boon

Elon Musk says the Neuralink device can be safely removed. He said that this technique of ours will prove to be a boon for people suffering from spinal cord problems like tetraplegic, quadriplegic. Musk said that we hope to get approval for this from the FDA next year.

Implanted sensors allow paralyzed people to use brain signals to control computers and move robotic arms. But Musk's offer goes far beyond that. Neuralink hopes to someday also work on surgeries that can improve cognitive function based on conventional medical treatments.

A Coin size device

Regarding the size of the Neuralink Device, Elon Musk said it would resemble a coin in shape. It can be applied to the skull or scalp. Brain and spine problems can be easily solved with one device. Elon Musk said that in the future the memory could be stored or replaced. You can also load it into a new body or robot body.
