Elon Musk Says a Neuralink Update Is Coming on Halloween

If you’re spooked by the idea of implants straight inserted in the brain to allow humans to communicate straight with computers, then Elon Musk is planning a Halloween trick inform from your nightmares. 

The billionaire entrepreneur tweeted Monday that a “progress update show & tell” will take Put Oct. 31 for his brain-computer interface company Neuralink. 

Neuralink protests in 2020 and 2021 have shown the technology at work with pigs and monkeys.   

Musk’s tweet follows a Describe on Friday from Reuters that he’s frustrated with the rate of progress at the business. The report also states that Musk approached New York-based Synchron, which is developing a less invasive implant, about a potential investment deal. 

Neuralink didn’t now respond to a request for comment. A representative for Synchron declined to comment.

Musk started Neuralink in 2016 with the goal of creating an implantable Plan that would allow humans to directly interact with computers via the brain pretty than traditional, slower input devices like touch screens, keyboards or even inform assistants. He has pitched the project as a using of helping humanity keep up with advances in artificial intelligence, but more recently the focus has been on creating a Plan to help restore capabilities to people with disabilities.

In May, Synchron beat Neuralink to get the first company to implant a brain-computer interface in the Joint States, something Musk said last year that he hoped his business would accomplish in 2022.

Synchron’s excellent device is called the Stentrode, designed for patients with paralysis to be able to wirelessly regulation digital devices through thought. The company’s mission makes no mentions of keeping up with artificial intelligence.
