Neuralink has a monkey in the office playing computer games with his brain

We often hear about Neuralink and about the progression with the development of the brain implant that Musk one day believes will be able to cure Alzheimer's and disorders related to the spinal cord. According to Musk, the technology can potentially also improve memory and learning abilities in humans.

In August, Musk showed off Gertrude, a pig with Neuralink implanted in its brain. Not everyone was equally impressed with the pig, although the implant was able to extract information about the entire pig's movement just by analyzing data from the father's brain.

Musk reveals how things are in the office
In a conversation on the social media Clubhouse (which currently requires an invitation), Musk told several thousand listeners that the company has a monkey with Neuralink implanted in the brain. The monkey enjoys playing video games that it controls wirelessly with the brain.

“WE HAVE A MONKEY WITH AN IMPLANT IN THE HEAD WHICH THROUGH SMALL CABLES CAN CONTROL A COMPUTER GAME WITH THE Brain. WE HAVE THE BEST APE FACILITY IN THE WORLD. WE WANT THE MONKEYS TO BE ABLE TO PLAY BRAIN-PONG WITH EACH OTHER. ”

How far Neuralink is from an implant that benefits us humans is uncertain. However, brain control of computer games works on monkeys, it possibly works on humans and. Musk has previously said that the long-term goal of Neuralink is to be able to live in symbiosis with artificial intelligence.

At the Clubhouse, he said that Neuralink plans to release a video of the office monkey in a month's time. Then it will show how impressive "brain-Pong" is in reality.
