Elon Musk spoke about the benefits of chipping people
Implantation of chips in the brain can help people with disabilities. Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and Neuralink, wrote about this in an article for the Chinese magazine China Cyberspace.
Musk noted that Neuralink neurochips are now helping people who have received serious injuries, as an example, he spoke about a 25-year-old man who had a motorcycle accident and now cannot eat on his own. The businessman explained that in this case the chip would be programmed to treat traumatic brain injuries.
The new technology could also help restore limb function in people with spinal cord injuries. In addition, it can be used to treat mental disorders. The chips will also help people with paralysis use their brains to work with computers and smartphones.
“With the long-term development of the brain-computer interface, this technology will expand the channels of communication between the outside world and the human brain, gain access to other parts of the brain and new neural data,” Musk wrote.
The businessman believes that the technologies of his companies will help achieve a better future for humanity.
