Elon Musk’s company, Neuralink, has successfully implanted a brain chip into a human subject, with the aim of developing a brain-computer interface to assist people with paralysis or sensory impairments.

The chip, about the size of a quarter, detects brain signals and transmits the data to an app for decoding into actions.

Neuralink hopes this technology will enable paralyzed individuals to regain full body movement and improve human interaction with artificial intelligence.

“Initial results show promising neuron spike detection,” Musk said.

The company has received FDA approval for clinical trials and is recruiting participants with limited hand mobility due to spinal cord injury or ALS.

“The first human patient will soon receive a Neuralink device. This ultimately has the potential to restore full body movement,” Musk wrote previously.

“In the long term, Neuralink hopes to play a role in AI … civilizational risk reduction by improving human to AI (and human to human) bandwidth by several orders of magnitude,” Musk said. “Imagine if Stephen Hawking had had this.”

The first product “is called Telepathy,” and it “enables control of your phone or computer, and through them almost any device, just by thinking,” Musk said.

Musk envisions the potential for the brain chip to enhance communication and control of devices through thought, particularly for individuals with physical limitations.

“Initial users will be those who have lost the use of their limbs,” he said. “Imagine if Stephen Hawking could communicate faster than a speed typist or auctioneer. That is the goal.”
