Elon Musk tweeted Monday that by the end of 2021 Neuralink would launch human trails to implant AI (Artificial Intelligence) into human brains. Musk also stated that the implant could cure Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s disease potentially. He further stated that Neuralink are working hard to make sure that these implants are performed safely. He also claimed that the chip could cure paralysis & even give telepathic powers. He said to refer to it as “a Fitbit in your skull.”
According to Musk, the chip has been implanted into a number of animals for testing purposes only. It was also implanted into a pig & monkey’s skull; it allowed the monkey to play video games using only it’s mind. There aren’t any details on how the pig may have utilized the AI chip yet.
There was a man who tweeted Musk on Jan 31, 2021 & said:
“Hi @elonmusk, I’ve been thinking for a long time how to write this to you – but I’ll keep it very simply:
I was in a car accident 20 years ago and have been paralyzed from the shoulders ever since. I’m always available for clinical studies at @Neuralink.
Please get in touch!
Elon Musk responded back saying:
Neuralink is working super hard to ensure implant safety & is in close communication with FDA. If things go well, we might be able to do initial human trails later this year.
In response to Musk:
Thank you for this great support and the love!
The brain-machine interface chip implant can read & write brain activity. On Sunday, Elon Musk tried to recruit for Neuralink on Twitter. Tweeting:
“If you’ve worked on advanced wearables, phones or robots, those skulls are needed @neuralink,”
