Elon Musk brings brain-computer interface to test pigs, chip reads brain

Elon Musk brings a brain-computer interface to test pigs, chip reads brain


Elon Musk's Neurolink, a company working to develop a new kind of interface between the human brain and computing devices, demonstrated a demo of the technology on Friday.



Neurolink says the technology is useful for people with memory loss, anxiety, brain damage, depression, and other neurological disorders.




Elon Musk said the demonstration aims to make the technology accessible and accessible to all. But the same technology can't cure all of the above-mentioned neurological diseases, Elon said, adding that the company's ultimate goal is even greater.



Elon was seen with three pigs in the exhibition. One of the three pigs he had had not been treated. Another device was installed inside a pig's skull or brain called Neuralink's 'Link'. The device was previously installed in the brain of a third pig and was removed.

At the exhibition, the third pig, whose link equipment had been removed, appeared to be in good health.



Musk came to the second pig and showed a display. In which a sound was coming and a scene was also shown. According to the scene, when the link device was detected, the pig would keep in touch with something and search for food.


According to Elon Musk, the device connects to applications inside the phone. From there the link device communicates.


Neurolink shut down the device in July after receiving a breakthrough device design from the US Food and Drug Administration. The company is preparing for its implantation in the human brain soon.


However, it has not been approved by the concerned authorities and further security tests are pending. The device on display was a reading device, which receives signals from pigs' brains via signal. Its ultimate goal is to provide the ability to read and write to address neurological problems such as those mentioned above.



Elon also explained the reason behind removing the device from the brain of the third pig. According to him, it was removed to use the new update on the hardware.


At the end of the question-and-answer session, Musk said he wanted to reduce the cost of the technology to 1,000, bringing it with modern equipment.


Elon believes that the BMI (Brain Machine Interface) device can power the human brain and accelerate it to the speed of artificial intelligence.


Many scientists have welcomed Elon Musk's involvement in the medical field. Because this technology of BMI will help people with neurological disorders and paralysis.
