Neuralink startup has unveiled a project on human
and machine intelligence interface
Neuralink has developed technology meant to be
implanted into the brain. It is designed to allow people to operate computers
and smartphones with their thoughts. It has developed a robot to insert those
threads in the brain, under the direction of a neurosurgeon.
Neuralink has planned to seek US Food and Drug Administration’s
approval for a human clinical trial on a version of its device that is only
intended for patients with serious unmet medical diseases. The first clinical
trial will target patients with complete paralysis due to an upper spinal cord.
Neuralink is a neurotechnology company founded
by Elon Musk in 2016. It aims to build a scalable implant to connect human
brains with computers.
