Artificial Intelligence, Neuralink intends to treat diseases through smaller chips in brains

Tesla CEO, Elon Musk has announced an improved prototype of the brain implant, Neuralink—intented to treating human diseases through computer chips in the brains after a similar coin-sized computer chip implant was termed successful in a pig named Gertrude on Friday.

According to details, the San Francisco-based Neuralink aims to implant wireless brain-computer interfaces consist of thousands of electrodes in the brain to help cure neurological diseases including Alzheimer’s, dementia, and spinal cord injuries and, ultimately, fuse humankind with artificial intelligence (AI).

Musk claimed on a webcast Friday, “An implantable device can actually solve these problems,” while mentioning illnesses such as memory loss, hearing loss, depression, and insomnia.

Meanwhile, he did not provide a deadline for those treatments, appearing to retreat from earlier statements that human trials would begin by the end of this year.

Neuralink’s first clinical trials will be conducted on a small number of human patients for the treatment of paralysis or paraplegia, the company’s head surgeon Dr. Matthew MacDougall said.
