Elon Musk, president of the company Tesla said that his company he founded, called Neuralink succeeds in stimulating a monkey’s brain to play video games.
Musk explained that Neuralink placed a computer chip in the skull of the monkey, and used small wires to connect it to his brain. Neuralink is trying to see if it can use its chips to get monkeys to play with each other.
Neuralink is headquartered in San Francisco, and its team of about 100 is trying to develop a computer interface as a mediator between the brain and executable commands.
The company aims to increase the rate of information flow from the human brain to the device, and is currently working on developing brain implants that help people suffering from paralysis to be able to control devices that control their thoughts.
