Tech and Environment Neuralink: Elon Musk’s plan to implant a chip in the human brain: Why?
Pakyong , 06 Dec : A wireless device developed by Musk’s startup Brain Chip Interfaces also owned by Tesla, SpaceX, and Twitter Elon Musk says it will be available for human testing within six months.
A video of a chimpanzee playing table tennis with its brain was posted online last year by Elon Musk’s company, Neuralink. A few days later, Musk tweeted that the technology could be tested on humans and could treat neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. Musk, which also owns Tesla, SpaceX, and Twitter A wireless device developed by Musk’s startup, Brain Chip Interfaces, will be ready for human clinical trials within six months, he said.
Musk said at an event at the company’s California headquarters that it intends to use it to insert coin-sized computer brain chips into human patients. “We expect to be able to insert Neuralink into humans in about six months,” Musk explained during the event.
Musk also said his company is developing two of his other key technologies, including implants. In addition, there are eye implants designed to improve or restore human vision. Six years ago, Musk founded Neuralink, a company that develops interfaces for controlling the brain. The company is developing technology that can be implanted in the nervous system to record brain activity and potentially stimulate it.
The company has developed a microchip that can be inserted into the brain and connected to a computer. The device tracks and even activates brain activity.
Neuralink’s coin-sized chip will be physically implanted in the brain by a neurosurgeon using a robot. Link, a chipset, is inserted into the skull during this process. Connected by some shielded cable to the electrodes used in the procedure. Then you can use this gadget to operate your computer or mobile phone. While awaiting US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, Neuralink recently began conducting animal testing.
Before inserting the device into a human, Musk said, “I want to be very careful and make sure it works.”
Neuralink is a system that connects the human brain to technology. This means that a paralyzed person can easily control a phone or computer with their head.
Both electrical stimulations of the brain and monitoring of brain activity are possible with the chipset cable. During a lengthy and in-depth interview about
Clubhouse, Musk claimed: Neuralink, an enhanced neural interface technology, could help researchers better understand and treat serious neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Musk said in 2019 that Neuralink “has the potential to address a range of brain-related diseases in the future.”
The group also added that only seven of Neuralink’s 23 monkeys were tested. and sent to the Neuralink lab in 2020, the remaining 15 died, the study said. Prior to, in April 2021, the company shot a video showing a monkey playing the computer game Pong with a Neuralink chip implanted in its head.

Former West Indies batter Chris Gayle has a phenomenal record when it comes to the Indian Premier League (IPL), including the highest-ever individual score – 175 not out – in the T20 league. Gayle achieved this feat while turning out for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) back in IPL 2013 against the now defunct Pune Warriors. When I hear so many stories about that particular day, it was like the world stopped. Scoring 100 off 30 balls,” Gayle told Uthappa. I don’t remember the names, but I played against an off-spinner named (Nikhil) Chopra and Bhajji as well,” Gayle said.3 hours ago Zee News

Despite her success through the years, the 41-year-old "Break My Soul" singer has never claimed the best album trophy with any of her four nominations in the category.

Even before an elderly “superfan” was dragged onto the Grammy stage and forced to say “Ha-Ha-Harry Styles” into a microphone by Trevor Noah. So let’s just get it over with: Beyoncé has once again lost the Grammy for Album of the Year. Harry’s House was a blockbuster record, and the song “Satellite” still causes me to astral-project on an emotional day. Still, there’s no comparing Styles’ buoyant puppy-love tunes to the world-stopping, time-shifting phenomenon that was and still is Beyoncé’s Renaissance. Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson performed what felt like the 87th Motown tribute we’ve seen at the Grammys.4 hours ago Yahoo News
