Elon Musk's Brain Chip Company prepares to launch human trials


Elon Musk's brain chip company Neuralink appears to be preparing to launch its first human test as the company is now looking for a manager to run the tests.

According to The Guardian, the entrepreneur, owner of several science startups, is gearing up to take Neuralink's brain chip research to the next level by hiring a clinical trial leader with a mission to initiate human trials. The company is working to find a possible way to use the technology to treat people with brain and spinal cord injuries.

According to the announcement, "he will work closely with some of Neuralink's most innovative chief physicians and engineers, as well as early participants in its clinical trials." "He will lead and help build the team responsible for enabling Neuralink's clinical research programs and developing the regulatory interactions that accompany an ever-changing and rapidly changing environment."

Neuralink has already tested its neurotechnology on pigs and monkeys by implanting a chip in a monkey's brain. With the device, primates have found a way to interact with computers and play video games such as "mind pong," showing that humans can eventually use microchips to control computer devices with their mind.

"The first Neuralink product that will allow a paralyzed person to use their brain to run a smartphone faster than a person can use their thumb," Musk tweeted last year, reaffirming the company's goals. "Later versions will be able to convert signals from the brain's neural pathways into the neural pathways of the body's sensory / motor neuron population, allowing paraplegics, for example, to walk again."

Musk co-founded Silicon Valley Technologies in 2016 and continues to grow his team. Another recent job announcement from Neuralink indicates that the company is currently seeking a clinical trials coordinator to assist in future studies as the company moves towards brain-computer interface testing in human studies. .
