The billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s brain chip startup is preparing to launch clinical trials in humans.


Musk, who co-founded Neuralink in 2016, has promised that the technology “will enable someone with paralysis to use a smartphone with their mind faster than someone using thumbs”.

马斯克在2016年共同创立了Neuralink公司,他承诺该技术 “将使瘫痪的人能够比使用拇指的人更快地用头脑使用智能手机”。
