Elon Musk’s Neuralink project, which set out with the goal of establishing a direct connection between humans and computers thanks to a chip to be implanted in the human brain, was tested on animals in 2020.
Neuralink wants to develop ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers, which will help treat brain disorders, protect and enhance the human brain, and eventually connect humans with artificial intelligence.
Worth Over 5 Billion Dollars
The value of Elon Musk’s brain implant company Neuralink, which was valued at 2 billion dollars two years ago, rose to 5 billion dollars.
Neuralink recently announced that it has received approval to conduct clinical trials to implant chips in the human brain.
Elon Musk claims that diseases such as blindness and depression could be treated with Neuralink if they manage to get implants deeper into the brain in the future.
