After the success with pigs and macaques, Neuralink, the mysterious brain implant company founded by Elon Musk, will attempt to implant ‘his chip’ in a man’s brain. Neuralink just posted a job posting for a clinical trials director and “that means he’s probably planning to attempt his first surgery on a human to install his high-bandwidth brain interface,” reports Mit Technology Review. Neuralink “will attempt to give a paralyzed patient brain control via a computer mouse, to scroll, click and probably type. One of its best engineers had previously told Ieee Spectrum that the company would try to beat the current one. Brain Typing World Record “. Currently “that record is held by Dennis DeGray, a paralyzed man” that Mit Technology Review spoke extensively last year and who “can type 18 words per minute using another brain implant developed by a consortium of academic researchers called BrainGate.” .
