Neuralink Human Trials

On 19 September 2023, there was an announcement published on Neuralink’s official website. Where the company announced that they received the approval from independent institutional review board.

Based on this approval Neuralink now can start human trials of their devices.

This technology, if went well, then could benefit patients with paralysis and ASL.

With Neuralink is a tech device which goes inside the head and it has a component called, N1 Implant.

Which is surgically placed in the brain region. Which is then able to control the movement and intention of the person.

It’s cosmetically invisible and uses 1024 electrodes across 64 threads to record and transmit brain activity.

It is placed inside the brain with the help of R1 robot.

Then there’s a N1 user app which will be used for controlling a computer using the N1 Implant.

If these trials became a success, then it can be beneficial in the medical field. Which is the positive point.

But what about wrong human intentions and things like greed?

Which can grow like viruses in people with power, if not controlled and squashed at the initial stage!

Here are my concerns with this device and it’s future.

How is Neuralink device going to be in complete control of the person who has implanted it in their brain? Even that without having to face any concenquences of memory loss or emotional disturbance or any other kind of side-effect related to brain and thinking process.

Human thoughts are very complex, how neuralink is going to manage that?

A person gets various kind of thoughts, and face countless emotions, it’s not easy for a person to stay focused on one thing or their goal in the digital era we are living on.

If all these can be managed via A.I.? Then how and what Neuralink is going to do manage thoughts. And how Neuralink can help in decision making?

I know I am going too advanced here. But if someone is going to put a hardware in my brain, these kind of questions are natural outcome.

I am not a neuroscientists, nor I have any involvement in Neuralink. However I would love if any respected neuroscientists can spread some light on these issues. Or if Neuralink care to comment on it. It would be great.
