In a live demonstration, Elon Musk revealed that Neuralink has successfully installed a working brain-to-machine interface inside a pig. Elon Musk’s brain-hacking company Neuralink demonstrated a working brain-to-machine interface in a live demonstration on August 28th.
The company revealed that a coin-sized computer had been installed in the brain of a pig called Gertrude. As the pig investigated its environment, the Neuralink device, hooked up to neurons connected to Gertrude’s snout, detected the neural activity. These spikes were rendered in real time on a graph and as a series of beeps.
Musk added that Gertrude has had the device installed in her brain for the past two months.READ MORE
