Elon Musk start-up Neuralink said Thursday that it has received approval from US regulators for test brain implants in people.
Neuralink said to have obtained authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for that it first-inThe human clinical study is important first step” for that it technologywhich aims to allow brains to interact directly with Computers.
“We’re excited about that share We have received FDA approval to launch first-in-a human clinical study,” Neuralink said in a post on muskrun twitter.
employment for A clinical trial has not yet been opened, according to Neuralink.
the aim of Neuralink implants aim to enable human brains to communicate directly with Computers, Musk said during his presentation start-up in December.
“We’ve been working hard to be prepared for our first Human (implant), obviously we want To be very careful and sure that she will work well before placing device in he said at the time.
Neuralink models, which are life-size of Planted coin in skulls of Monkeys, demonstrations are shown by startup.
In a presentation, Neuralink showed several monkeysplaying” basic video games or moving pointer on screen through their Neuralink implant.
the technology he have also tested in pigs.
with the help of Surgical robot piece of The skull is replaced with An initial demonstration showed that the Neuralink disk and its fragile wires are strategically inserted into the brain.
The disc records nerve activity, and relays information via a common bluetooth wireless signal To the device Like a smartphone, according to Musk.
“It’s actually quite appropriate in your skull,” Musk said during a preview.
“It could be under your hair and you wouldn’t know. “
Musk said the company will try that use Implants to restore vision and movement in Humans who Lost like this abilities.
“First we will empower someone who Almost no ability To turn on their muscles…and enable them to turn on their phones faster than anyone else who He said.
As miraculous as it may be soundWe are sure it is possible to restore full body job for someone who “He has a severed spinal cord,” he said.
beyond potential treat Neurological diseases, musk ultimate goal he ensure He said that humans are not intellectually overwhelmed by artificial intelligence (AI).
other operating companies on Similar systems include synchronization, which announced in July it has been transplanted first the human mind-machine user interface in United State.
members of Neuralink team partner “wish listwhich ranged from technology Restore movement for the paralyzed and sight for the blind to enable telepathy and teleportation of memories for Later reference – or possibly downloaded to alternate bodies.
Meanwhile, Musk recently created a group business Dedicated to the development of cutting-edge artificial intelligence. the boss of Tesla has it also Expect to be self driving technology on electricity car trending maker for breakthrough.
Musk confirmed that the minds are in sync with machines lively if people going to avoid It is outdone by the AI to the point that under best of conditions, humans will be closer tohouse the cats “.
Experts and academics remain careful about seeing it of Merging minds symbiotically with superPowerful computing.
