These are the highlights from Elon Musk’s Neuralink presentation on Nov. 30, 2022. This is Elon musk chip , neuralink brain chip , neuralink trials Details.
Elan Musk Explain-
This is telepathic typing so to be clear this is, he’s not actually using a keyboard. He’s moving the cursor with his mind to the highlighted key. Now technically we can’t actually spell and so I don’t want to oversell this thing because that’s the next version. So but what’s really cool here is the sake of the monkey is moving the mouse cursor using just his mind moving the cursor around to the highlighted key and then spelling out what we want everyone to spell.
But and then so this is something that could be used for somebody who says quadriplegic or tetraplegic human even before we make the spinal cord stuff work is being able to control a mouse cursor control a phone and we’re confident that you that someone who has basically no other interface the outside world would be able to uh control their phone better than someone who has Working Hands.
Neuralink Upgradability is very important because our first production device will be much like an iPhone one and I’m pretty sure you would not want an iPhone one stuck in your head if the iPhone 14 is available. Be able to demonstrate full reversibility and upgradeability so you can remove a device and replace it with the latest version or if it stopped working for any reason replace it. That’s a fundamental requirement for the device at your link. I think it’s also important to show that sake actually likes doing the demo and is not like strapped to the chair or anything.
So it’s the monkeys actually enjoy doing the demos because they get the banana smoothie and it’s kind of a fun game. So I guess smart to try to make is like We Care a great deal about animal welfare and I’m pretty sure like our monkeys are pretty happy you know. So as you can see there’s a quick decision-maker on the fruit front. The first two applications we’re gonna aim for in humans are restoring vision and I think this is notable in that even if someone has never had Vision ever like they were born blind.
We believe we can still restore vision. So because the visual part of the cortex is still there. So even if they’ve never seen before we’re confident that they could see and then the other application being in the motor cortex where we would initially enable someone who has no ability to almost no ability to operate their muscles, you know sort of like a sort of Stephen Hawking type situation and enable them to operate their phone faster than someone who has Working Hands.
Obviously even better than that would be to bridge the connection so take out the signals from the motor cortex and let’s say somebody’s got a broken neck. That bridges those signals to neural link devices located in the spinal cord. I think we’re confident there are no physical limitations to enabling full-body functionality so I mean as miraculous as it may sound we’re confident that it is possible to restore full-body functionality to someone who has a severed spinal cord.

So our first step along these dimensions for our device is what we call the N1 implant. It’s size of about a quarter. It’s microfabricated on a flexible thin foam array that we call threads. It’s fully implantable and wireless. So no wires and after the surgery the implant is under the skin and it is invisible.
(Next Explain) Christine- Leader of the surgery engineering team of Neuralink.
To get an N1 device it’s essentially these steps, targeting, the incision, drill the craniectomy, removing the tough outer meningeal layer called the dura then insert the thin flexible threads of electrodes, place the implant into the hole we created, and then that’s it you’ve got an implant Under the Skin.
The surgical robot does the thread insertion part of the surgery. This is because it would be very difficult to do manually. Imagine taking a hair from your head and trying to stick it into a Jello covered by Saran Wrap and doing this at a precise depth and position and doing this 64 times, within a reasonable amount of time.
(Next Explain About Insertion Neuralink) DJ- Member of the Founding team of Neuralink
So who wants to see some insertions? So here it is. that’s our R1 robot with our patient Alpha who is lying comfortably on the patient bed. The whole process of inserting uh about 64 threads in our first product is going to be around 15 minutes for this robot.
(Next Explain) Avinash- engineer on the Asic team of Neuralink
One of the things that we did is to move our device manufacturing to a dedicated facility in Austin for scale-up manufacturing. We now have a dedicated own or infact a double or in Austin and this is just a stepping stone before we eventually build our own Neuralink Clinic.
The robot has just completed inserting all 64 threats. So let’s take a look. This is a view of the insertion sites similar to the one that DJ showed you earlier. But instead of targeting reticles, if you look closely you can see that all 64 threads each carrying 16 electrodes have been inserted into the brain proxy while avoiding vasculature and all just within the past 20 minutes.
Elan Musk –
We’ve submitted I think most of our paperwork to the FDA and we think probably in about six months we should be able to have up host Neuralink in a human so.
