Elon Musk's Neuralink Implants Wireless Brain Chip In Human For 1st Time 🤖🧠

Elon Musk has revealed on X that his neurotechnology startup, Neuralink, has successfully implanted a brain chip in its first human patient, with initial results described as "promising."🤖🧠

The ambition is to supercharge human capabilities, treat neurological disorders like ALS or Parkinson's, and maybe one day achieve a symbiotic relationship between humans and artificial intelligence. 🤖🧠"The first human received an implant from Neuralink yesterday and is recovering well," Musk said in a post on X, formerly Twitter. 📅"Initial results show promising neuron spike detection," he added. 📈

The start-up last year said it won approval from US regulators to test its brain implants in people. 🛠️🧑‍⚕️Neuralink's technology will mainly work through an implant called the "Link" -- a device about the size of five stacked coins that is placed inside the human brain through invasive surgery. 💽💉According to data company Pitchbook, last year California-based Neuralink had more than 400 employees and has raised at least $363 million. 💰

Though he wins most of the headlines, Musk is hardly alone in trying to make advances in the field, which is officially known as brain-machine or brain-computer interface research. 👥🧠

Hit with delays, the tycoon had reportedly reached out to join forces with implant developer Synchron about a potential investment. 💼💡Unlike Neuralink's Link, its implant version does not require cutting into the skull to install it. The Australia-based Synchron implanted its first device in a US patient in July 2022. 🇦🇺🇺🇸
