Elon Musk’s Neuralink: First Brain-Chip Patient Plays Chess

Mar 23, 2024 | News | 0 comments


Neuralink, a brain-chip company, has released a video of its first patient moving a cursor on a screen using an implanted device.

On Wednesday, Elon Musk”s brain-chip firm, Neuralink, livestreamed its first implanted patient using his mind to play online chess. According to the surfaced video, the guy who is seen using the Neuralink device to move the cursor while playing chess is 29-year-old Noland Arbaugh. He got paralysed below the shoulder after an accident.

The goal of the Neuralink implant is to allow users to control a computer’s keyboard or cursor using only their thoughts.

The world is rapidly transforming into a more digital era, and innovation has no boundaries. Considering the growth of technology, market experts highly believe that “anything is possible now.” Moving forward, here is the statement of Arbaugh, the first brain-chip patient.

Neuralink’s first Patient spoke out

In the video that was live on Musk’s social media platform X, Arbaugh stated that the implant operation was “super easy.” He also shared his experience playing the video game Civilization VI with the brain implant, saying that Neuralink enabled him to “play for eight hours straight and do that again.”

Further, Noland Arbaugh said, “I was discharged from the hospital the very next day. I’m not cognitively impaired. In addition to that, he also warned people about technology, stating that they “have run into some issues” and that it is not perfect. I don’t want people to think that this is the end of the journey, there’s still a lot of work to be done, but it has already changed my life,” he added.

When was the Neuralink implanted?

According to Elon Musk’s statement on Neuralink’s progress, Arbaugh could operate a computer mouse with his thoughts after receiving an implant from the business in January. This means that the Neuralink brain chip implantation process was completed in January 2024.

About Neuralink Device

The Neuralink device is about the size of a one-pound coin. It is implanted into the skull and contains microscopic wires that can detect neuron activity and transmit a wireless signal to a receiving device. The company has also run trials on pigs and claimed that monkeys can play a basic version of the video game Pong.

In May 2023, after consulting the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Neuralink also conducted human testing on the chip.

Communication from the Neuralink

According to the former program director for brain engineering at the National Institutes of Health in the United States, Kip Ludwig, “Neuralink’s findings were not a “breakthrough.”

“It is still in the very early days post-implantation, and there is a lot of learning on both the Neuralink side and the subject’s side to maximise the amount of information for control that can be achieved,” he stated.

Ludwig also expressed that, despite the implant, the patient has benefited from being able to communicate with a computer in a manner that was not possible for them to do before. “It’s certainly a good starting point.”
