Neuralink Elon Musk, what is the Telepathy chip and what is it for

We have learned to know Elon Musk over the years.
The richest man in the world who made his fortune with the Tesla company and its electric cars, is a visionary, a dreamer, a person who sets no limits.
In addition to Tesla, over the years he has given life to several other projects ranging from the conquest of space with the SpaceX company, to scientific research with the creation of Neuralink Corp, founded in 2016 together with 7 scientists.
Elon Musk's Neuralink Corp.
aims to revolutionize the world by improving the lives of millions of people suffering from paralysis, stroke, Lou Gehrig's disease and hearing and vision loss.
How? Through the creation of a chip to be installed in the brain capable of allowing them to achieve a symbiosis with artificial intelligence and thus improve their lifestyle.
The experiments have been going on for years on animals and various criticisms have come from animal rights groups who have accused the company of cruelty towards the monkeys, pigs and other mammals on which the implants have been tested so far.
He is accused of killing over 1,500.
But now the research has moved forward and has taken the next step: the implantation of the chip in a human brain.
The product is called Telepathy and promises to be a revolution.

It's called "Telepathy" and claims to be able to connect the human brain to machines.
Science fiction or reality? It seems that Elon Musk's project has moved from testing on animals to testing on humans.
The first man, whose identity nor the health conditions that led him to this choice are unknown, received his implant.
The experiment involves the activation of an implant made up of small discs and a series of wires that are capable of translating brain signals into actions on devices, such as a computer or a smartphone.
At least that's what Elon Musk says in the announcement given to social media.
How is Telepathy made? The implant is made up of five elements: a capsule, a battery, a chip, 1024 electrodes and an electronic part.
The capsule is the external one that contains the entire implant and is the one that is inserted into the subject's brain.
The battery has been made high-performance and can be recharged externally.
The chips and the electronic part, i.e.
the one that transmits to the devices, together with the 1024 electrodes (distributed over 64 ultra-thin wires and connected to the brain) are always found inside the same capsule.
How is Neuralink's Telepathy project implanted? The implant is clear: small and well placed in a capsule.
The operation to insert it into the brain, however, could be more complex.
According to what was said, the surgery requires great precision.
Telepathy is made up of microscopic threads and can therefore only be inserted by a robot.
The technique involves using ultrasensitive optics and a needle thinner than a hair to weave circuits in the brain.
The identity of the first person who underwent the experiment is currently unknown.
However, one can imagine that it is a subject forced into immobility due to some trauma to the spine.
Musk had explained it: the first users will be those who have lost the use of limbs.
So since September the company has been looking for volunteers with quadriplegia due to cervical spinal cord injury or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
The subject of the experiment should therefore be a person with these characteristics and ready to challenge the innovation of such a chip.

It is clear, however, that it presents various problems and many doubts about the ethics of experimentation.
Since the company was founded in 2016, the first step forward from a bureaucratic point of view was only made in 2022.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the American government agency that regulates pharmaceutical products, explained that the approval for the trial was slow in arriving because the company itself had not sent some documents.
So after an initial failure and a second request rejected due to concerns about the safety of the plant, only today was it possible to confirm the first step towards testing on humans.
Many doubts: permanent damage, impossibility of removing the chip, the risk linked to lithium batteries and several others.
Finally, last May, the approval was given to a first step towards a human being with telepathic abilities (hence the name) on electronic devices connected to his brain.
