Making history for Neuralink and Elon Musk, the billionaire announces that a person has been fitted for the first time with the neurotech startup’s brain chip.
Elon made the significant statement on Monday on his social media site X, which was once Twitter, saying that the preliminary findings appear promising.
Musk said the patient, a member of Neuralink’s first human test group, received the implant on Sunday and is doing well.
Elon made the following statement: “Initial results show promising neuron spike detection.” Elon named the brain chip Telepathy and claims that it “enables control of your phone or computer, and through them almost any device, just by thinking.”Elon puts it another way… “Imagine Stephen Hawking was able to communicate faster than a speed typist or auctioneer. That’s the goal.”
Neuralink’s first human experiment includes people who have lost use of their limbs.
Elon Musk’s business is evaluating the implant’s and the surgical robot’s safety before inserting the chip into the brain. Neuralink claims it also wants to test how futuristic technology functions in the actual world.
The FDA approved this experiment in May, and this is only the first stage in a lengthy procedure for ultimate FDA clearance.
Nonetheless, it represents a significant stride forward for Elon Musk, his firm, and civilization.
