Elon Musk Says First Human Patient Will Soon Get Brain Implant: “Imagine if Stephen Hawking Had This”


Elon Musk says Neuralink is coming right away. In a post on his Twitter X account, Musk says:

“The first human patient will soon receive a Neuralink device. This ultimately has the potential to restore full body movement.
In the long term, Neuralink hopes to play a role in AI risk civilizational risk reduction by improving human to AI (and human to human) bandwidth by several orders of magnitude.
Imagine if Stephen Hawking had had this.”

A breakthrough or the beginning of a horror movie? We’re about to find out how chips and artificial intelligence will change our lives.

Earlier Neuralink posted: “We’re excited to announce that recruitment is open for our first-in-human clinical trial! If you have quadriplegia due to cervical spinal cord injury or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), you may qualify. Learn more about our trial by visiting our recent blog post.”
