After buying Twitter, Elon Musk is now preparing to speed up his brain chip program. On Wednesday, he said in a program, in the next 6 months, he is planning to do a trial by putting a chip in the brain of humans. Musk’s company Neuralink explained through a presentation how the wireless brain chip would work. The trial of this special chip has been done on a monkey. During the program, it was shown how a monkey is playing pinball without the help of a joystick. The monkey also did typing.
In its presentation, Neuralink also showed how a robot performed surgery. In such a situation, the question arises that what is this brain chip, how it will be implanted in the human mind and how beneficial it will prove to be.
What is brain chip?
Elon Musk’s company Neuralink has developed a coin-sized device. Neuralink is the only company working on brain chips. It will be implanted in the human brain. That’s why it is also being called brain chip. After being implanted in the brain, this chip will work to read the signals of the brain. Musk claims that through this man will be able to control the technology with his mind. This chip has been used on monkeys and robots which have been successful. After this, within the next 6 months, there is a preparation for its trial in humans. An application has been made to the American Food and Drug Controller for the trial.
How will the chip be implanted in the brain of humans?
of the New York Times Report According to, Elon Musk says that the electrode wire connected to the device will be delivered by piercing the human brain. A coin-sized device will be set on the head. Its wires will remain connected to the gray matter of the brain which is very important for humans. These wires are being called micron-scale threads. Preparations are being made to deliver it to the parts of the brain that control movement.
Neuralink says, we are preparing for a completely implantable device, with the help of which you will be able to control your computer or mobile device from anywhere. According to the company, these electrode wires are so thin and soft that it cannot be delivered to the brain by human hands. To do this work, a robotic system has been prepared which will do the work of implanting it. The brain chip has been linked to the Neuralink app, so that it can be operated easily.
Musk claims chip ready for humans
We are now confident that the Neuralink device is ready for humans, so timing is a function of working through the FDA approval process.

How will the technology work?
The electrodes attached to the brain chip will read the signals of the brain’s neurons. The signal of what the person is thinking and what he wants to say will be sent to the software. The software will decode these signals and it will try to work.
The company says that in the initial stages, patients suffering from paralysis will be able to control computers and mobile devices. We want them to be able to do things like photography with the help of our device. Neurological disorders will be treated with its help.
However, it also has some dangers of its own. Media reports have claimed that the brain implanting robot has been designed in such a way that it will make a hole of 22 mm diameter in the human skull and through it, the electrode wire connected to the device will reach the brain. The risk of bleeding has been expressed by connecting the brain to the device. Although how successful its trial on humans will be, its results are yet to come. After getting the green signal from the FDA, Musk will start its human trial.
