Medicine & TechnologySamsung recently announced its approach to copy and paste the neural connection map of the brain onto a computer chip. It also said it can have the brain reverse engineered with the help of Harvard researchers.
In the ongoing pursuit to successfully emulate the human brain, one of the most complex machines known to man, a new study was able to fabricate an artificial neuron that can retain electronic memories.
Brain-Computer interface company, Synchron received approval from the FDA for its clinical trials in the US. Specifically, the BCI developer will place its Stentrode device in the brain to help paralyzed patients.
Elon Musk's Neuralink has long been touted as a neurological advancement. However, the research for brain-computer interfaces has long started in the 1970s. Today, Musk's Neuralink faces a new competitor, Inbrain Neuroelectronics that says it can outperform Neuralink.
Elon Musk stated that the development of Neuralink will allow humans to communicate using a universal language in the near future. But the priority of the brain chip will focus first on solving neurological issues.
Elon Musk's startup, Neuralink is developing brain microchip technology that will help people struggling with spinal cord injury and paralysis to regain independence by stimulating neuron firing in specific parts of the brain while having future applications in neurosurgery and give humans equal footing against AI technology.
Elon Musk shares a product update on an implantable computer chip prototype by Neuralink. The chip is meant to record neurological activity, help those with disabilities, and telepathically use a Tesla.
