Implanting chips in human brains to begin this year: Elon Musk


“Revolutionary brain-chip implantation project set to commence,” declares Elon Musk, as his groundbreaking startup Neuralink prepares to embark on testing chip implants in the human brain by the end of this year.

During his appearance at the prestigious VivaTech event held in Paris, France, Musk unveiled his ambitious plans to initiate trials on tetraplegic or paraplegic patients, aiming to unlock new possibilities for medical advancements and restore lost functionalities.

The upcoming test, slated to be webcast by Reuters, marks a significant milestone for Neuralink. Just last month, the company announced its successful acquisition of permission from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for this momentous endeavor. Previously, regulatory hurdles obstructed progress due to concerns surrounding the device’s potential risks.

While the FDA has acknowledged Neuralink’s approval, Reuters reports that the company remains tight-lipped about addressing the raised queries concerning potential hazards. Such transparency is crucial to ensure public trust and safety in this groundbreaking technological frontier.

Notably, this announcement follows a series of previous target dates set by Musk, beginning in 2019. However, despite the delays, expectations are high that this time, the eagerly awaited trial will indeed commence, delivering a momentous leap forward in neural technology.

Neuralink, founded by Elon Musk in 2016, aims to develop implantable brain-machine interface (BMI) technology to merge human brains with artificial intelligence. The company’s ultimate vision is to enhance human cognition and enable direct communication between computers and the human brain.

Elon Musk, Founder of Neuralink:
“We’re on the cusp of a revolutionary breakthrough. Testing chip implants in humans represent a major step forward in our mission to bridge the gap between technology and the human mind.”

In Conclusion:
Neuralink’s impending trial for chip implants in the human brain has generated significant anticipation within the scientific and medical communities. As the project prepares to commence later this year, the world watches with bated breath, awaiting the potentially transformative impact it could have on human life.
