Researchers are currently conducting clinical trials to implant chips in the brains of people who have spinal cord injuries to give movement back to them.

According to The Guardian, Elon Musk’s cofounder of Neuralink neurotech company is working on some cool tech to benefit humanity. Musk claims that the chips of his company, which are currently being tested on humans, will allow someone with paralysis “to use a smartphone with their brain faster than someone who uses thumbs.”

This tech was demonstrated last year by Neuralink, who wired a monkey’s brain to play Pong. Pager, a macaque named Pager, does a great job. It was a positive display of emerging tech.

Neuralink is now looking for a clinical trials director to take the next step in this process, human trials.

The advertisement for the position in Fremont, California, states, “As the clinical trials directorthe director of the clinical trials some the most innovative doctors, top engineers, and also work with Neuralink’s first clinical trial participants.” You will be responsible for leading and building the team that enables Neuralink’s clinical research activities and creating the required regulatory interactions in a fast-paced, ever-evolving environment.

It can sometimes be challenging to take the richest man in the world seriously, even when he’s doing the right thing. He’ll present potentially life-altering tech like this one day, then the next, he will start a strange unjustified Twitter battle or reveal something similar to the very odd cyber track from a few decades back. Musk previously stated that we would have implants in humans by 2020. However, I think he should be able to take some credit for the years we’ve had.

“I believe we have a chance to restore full-body function to someone with a spinal cord injury using Neuralink. Neuralink works well in monkeys. We’re just doing a lot more testing to confirm that it is safe and reliable and that the Neuralink device can still be removed safely.

If the human trials of Neuralink prove successful, its development should be much quicker, thanks to better feedback. This technology will likely be available soon. It may help a monkey play Pong well, and it could also shake up the gaming industry.
