The technological world has been developing day by day. It’s getting hard for people to even be updated in this fast-running world.
Neuralink, a brain chip developed by the popular entrepreneur Elon Musk is a new milestone in the technological world.
Let’s get to know more about Neuralink and how did they manage to get approval from the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
1. What is Neuralink
Neuralink is a company that manufactures chip that facilitates the processing and transmission of signals or neural signals.
Their major mission is to come up with technology that can cure neurological conditions and chronic diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Neuralink has been testing out its chip or neural chip in monkeys, pigs, and several animals.
The negative impact of this which was reported is that the testing has resulted in the death of a large number of animals which created a lot of controversies and the company has received a lot of backlash.
The company has been rushing to get approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to start the test on human beings but was struggling.
The owner, Elon Musk has already set a deadline for the test in human beings.
The company claims that the chip can help people who struggle with paralysis to use devices like smartphones just with the help of their mind-brain chip.
If a success, this device is going to create history in both technology and medical fields.
2. The Approval
Neuralink needs to secure approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to start testing on brain chip human beings.
The company has already skipped the deadline set by Elon Musk. Finally, Elon Musk’s Neuralink chip has got the approval from FDA.
But the date for the kickstart is not yet announced.
🚨BREAKING: FDA approves Neuralink to launch its first-in-human clinical study.

3. AI Integration
The chip will help in improving the cognitive abilities of human beings. The human race will be able to enhance the ability to store a large amount of information.
Artificial Intelligence is a booming sector and integrating it with a human brain can again turn tables.
Scientists also have stated that integrating the human brain and AI can help AI to understand human behaviors much deeper.
4. Privacy Issues
Everybody is now concerned about privacy issues. Data getting leaked is one of the serious issues that everyone is facing.
Since AI is directly integrated with our data, body, and even our mind, privacy concerns can be a potential drawback.
The company has to bring in a code of conduct with which the device has to be programmed. This can help the company in building trust and value in the minds of the customers.
The device has to be built in the best quality possible as it is closely linked to the human body and any slight negligence can even cause fatal.
As we all step into a milestone of innovation, it is essential to maintain a cautious mind and be careful of all aspects. Let’s see what the company is the potential of bringing into the world and what revolution it can cause.
