Head of SpaceX and Tesla Elon Musk announced the Neuralink presentation, which will take place the day after tomorrow, August 28.
What will be shown
IN this day should show a new version of a neurosurgical robot, with which will chip people. Recall that he will implant deep into human brain thread-like electrodes that connect to receiving capsule behind the patient’s ear. IN as a result, the device will transmit brain signals to computer.
Such chips will help restore lost vision, hearing and speech, and also designed for paralyzed people. “Not I want to excite too much, but truly transformative potential for brain recovery and motor functions“, – Elon Musk wrote earlier.
The technology has already been tested on monkeys, and in end of this year should start tests on people.
What exactly will be shown on presentations – unclear, but Elon Musk promises a new version of the robot that all is still far from ideal. The presentation will start on 28 August YouTube, but at us it will be 1:00 am on August 29th.
