Elon Musk 'confident' in Neuralink microchip device, expects to begin human trials in six months
Elon Musk is a ‘visionary,’ we’re lucky to have him: Tim Draper
Draper Associates founder Tim Draper assesses the latest developments in Elon Musk’s Twitter saga on ‘The Claman Countdown.’
Twitter and Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced a big development Wednesday in the brain chip innovation by his company Neuralink.
The business mogul said the wireless device, which would be implanted in the brain of disabled patients with the intentions of helping them move and communicate again, is expected to begin human clinical trials in six months.
Neuralink has been conducting tests on animals over the past few years while waiting for U.S. regulatory approval to begin trials on people.
"We want to be extremely careful and certain that it will work well before putting a device into a human, but we've submitted I think most of our paperwork to the FDA and probably in about six months we should be able to upload Neuralink in a human," Musk said Wednesday night in a public update on the device.
