First Neuralink Brain Chip Implanted in a Human
Following the United States Food and Drug Administration’s approval last year, Neuralink started testing its first brain implants on humans on January 28. Founder Elon Musk announced on his platform X:
Ambitious goals: As a first step, the implant will test people’s ability to control a computer cursor or keyboard using their thoughts. Ultimately the brain-computer-interface implant, which is placed in a region of the brain that controls the intention to move, promises to enable patients to overcome paralysis and other neurological conditions.
The first Neuralink product is called Telepathy.
Enables control of your phone or computer, and through them almost any device, just by thinking. Initial users will be those who have lost the use of their limbs. Imagine if Stephen Hawking could communicate faster than a speed typist or auctioneer. That is the goal.
If tests are successful the possibilities are endless, ranging from controlling limbs to household items to drones and weaponry.
Our future? Today our world has many regulations that seek to prevent the abuse of such advances. But the history of mankind shows that once the possibilities are explored, regulations will be broken. We are living in a time of great technological upheaval, but we have failed to master our emotions and human relations.
This is a most dangerous development.
