• Watch a monkey equipped with Elon Musk's Neuralink device play Pong with its brain

    10 days ago - By TechCrunch

    Elon Musk's Neuralink, one of his many companies and the only one currently focused on mind control , has released a new blog post and video detailing some of its recent updates - including using its hardware to make it possible for a monkey to play pong with only its brain.
    In the video above, Neuralink demonstrates how it used its sensor hardware and brain implant to record a baseline of activity from this macaque as it played a game on-screen where it had to move a token to different squares using a joystick with its hand. Using that baseline data, Neuralink was able to use machine...

    Neuralink, Elon Musk's company focused on developing brain-machine interfaces, has posted a video to YouTube that appears to show a monkey navigating an on-screen cursor using only its mind.
    Pager, a 9-year-old macaque monkey, had a Neuralink implanted about six weeks before the video was shot, the video's unnamed narrator says. He was first taught to play video games with a joystick for a banana smoothie reward, delivered through a metal straw. While he was doing this, the Neuralink device recorded information about which neurons were firing - learning, essentially, to predict hand...
