Neuralink is focused on human-computer interfaces for artificial intelligence in people.
Initially, Neuralink will be planning to use its technology to help paralysed patients control their smartphones or computers, although later the company has said the chips could be used to treat those with brain disorders. In the latest tweet on his verified handle, Musk said he would be "going off" the microblogging site for a while.
The billionaire said Neuralink is trying to figure out if it can use its chips to get monkeys to play "mind Pong" with each other.
The Neuralink device in Gertrude's brain transmitted data live during the demo as she snuffled around.
The monkey isn't the only animal to receive an early version of the implant, which Musk described as "like a Fitbit in your skull with tiny wires".
Neuralink is designing the so-called brain-machine interface with the goal of helping paralyzed patients. In a video released past year, Neuralink demonstrated its work on a pig named Gertrude. "I am a supporter of bitcoin", Musk said. He claims that an inspector from the US Department of Agriculture said that the Neuralink laboratory was "the nicest monkey facility" they had examined. "We went the extra mile for the monkeys".
During an appearance on the new audio-chat social networking app Clubhouse that was launched in 2020, Elon Musk engaged in a freewheeling conversation with the hosts regarding a number of things such as the future of Mars exploration, Tesla, and memes. Answering some questions about the developments in social media, Musk then announced his views on bitcoin.
