The primary goal of Neuralink researchers is to contribute to the treatment of neurological diseases and paralysis and to make the coin-sized implants safe and reliable enough to be used in surgery. “The approval is the result of a great deal of work by the Neurolink team in collaboration with the FDA,” the company tweeted. But obviously for Musk the miracle of overcoming paralysis or blindness is not enough. “The chips will allow humanity to achieve a symbiosis with AI,” the billionaire said some time ago, launching himself into one of his risky predictions such as that of the autonomy of the Teslas. The war against artificial intelligence is one of Musk’s dots who recently warned of the risk of human beings becoming the “pets” of Ai robots. In the past, the owner of Twitter has overestimated the ability of the companies he leads to carry out his impossible plans. Neuralink’s initial goal, in fact, was to start implanting chips in human brains in 2020, a deadline that was later postponed to 2022. Last December, the start-up suffered another setback due to investigations into alleged violations of animal rights, allegations always denied by researchers.
