Neuralink brain chip is ready for the human trial: Elon Musk
Elon Musk’s Neuralink, which was founded to link our brains directly to computers, which in the result is developing to help blind people to see and help people with spinal cord injuries to walk or use their hands. This company is working on the technology to develop a brain chip interface that will help disabled patients move and communicate again.
Musk’s company Neuralink, based in the San Francisco Bay Area and Austin, Texas is currently working on developing neurallink brain chip
On December 1, Elon Musk on Twitter announced that the neuralink brain chip is ready for human trials.
He said- “We are now confident that the Neuralink device is ready for humans, so timing is a function of working through the FDA approval process” also he said the trials are likely to begin in six months.
“We want to be extremely careful and certain that it will work well before putting a device into a human,” Musk said during a much-awaited public update on the device.
In a presentation at Neuralink headquarters that lasted nearly three hours. Elon Musk Speaking to a crowd of select invitees, he emphasized the speed at which the company is developing its device which is the neuralink brain chip.
“The progress at first, particularly as it applies to humans, will seem perhaps agonizingly slow, but we are doing all of the things to bring it to scale in parallel,” he added. “So, in theory, progress should be exponential.”
He added–The first two human applications targeted by the Neuralink device will be in restoring vision and enabling movement of muscles in people who cannot do so, Elon Musk also said. “Even if someone has never had the vision, ever, like they were born blind, we believe we can still restore vision,” he said.
