Neuralink can now test its solution on humans

Elon Musk, known for his vision of the future and ability to create innovative projects, has taken another step into the future with his company Neuralink. Neuralink recently received FDA approval to begin its first human clinical study, which means we could be one step away from seeing the Neuralink device implanted in the human brain.

What is Neurallink?

The Neuralink company was founded by Elon Musk and Max Hodak in 2016. The goal is to develop a brain interface (BCI) that allows people to interact directly with machines using brain activity. This technology may change not only the way technology interacts with technology, but also how we treat certain medical conditions.

How does a Brain Computer Interface work?

Neuralink’s brain computer interface works by inserting a small device into the brain. This device contains more than 3,000 thin electrodes that can interpret the signals produced in the brain and transmit the information to devices via Bluetooth. This technology allows people to control external devices using only their own devices.

What is the purpose of Neuralink?

Neuralink’s long-term goal is to solve a potential existential threat to humanity’s future: artificial intelligence. Elon Musk has repeatedly expressed concern about the rapid development of artificial intelligence and the possibility that it will surpass human intelligence. With Neuralink, Musk hopes humans can keep up with artificial intelligence by infusing their brains with the technology.

What are the benefits of Neuralink?

In addition to humans being linked with artificial intelligence, Neuralink has several uses. For example, it can treat epilepsy or neurodegenerative diseases. It can also restore vision and movement in humans. Finally, Neuralink has the power to improve life for many.

What problems faced the past?

The road to Neuralink was not easy. Indeed, his creation had problems;

  • Internal conflicts and corporate culture: Anonymous former employees described “guilt and fear” at the company. These internal conflicts can affect team effectiveness and morale.
  • Treatment of Animals: Neuralink has conducted experiments on its devices on animals, leading to allegations of abuse. These allegations resulted in a federal investigation.
  • FDA Approval: Although Neuralink received FDA approval for human clinical trials in May 2023, the company is facing challenges in obtaining this past approval. The FDA rejected the initial application for Neuralink for human trials due to safety concerns.
  • However, Neuralink’s move to human clinical trials is an important step toward the future of brain-computer interfaces. Although there are many technical and ethical challenges to overcome, the potential of this technology is enormous. Let’s take a look at Neuralink’s next developments and what this means for the future of humanity and technology.
