The CEO of Tesla noted that one of the goals of the project is to solve brain and spinal injuries.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk revealed Tuesday that neurotechnology company Neuralink could begin implanting computer chips in humans later this year as part of its initial tests.
“Neuralink is working very hard to ensure implant safety and is in close communication with the FDA [Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos de EE.UU.]. If things go well, we may be able to do initial human trials later this year, “Musk wrote on Twitter, in response to a comment from a user requesting to participate in human testing of the technology.

“I was in a car accident 20 years ago and since then I have been paralyzed from the shoulders. I am always available for clinical studies at Neuralink, “wrote social network user Hamoon Kamai.
The billionaire explained in his latest tweets that the short-term goal of the project is to solve brain and spinal injuries, whereas, in the long term, it would look for “the human / AI symbiosis”.
Just days before, Musk claimed that Neuralink has a test facility where there is a lab jumpsuit with an implant in his skull “he can play video games” with his mind.
