[국제]Musk: “In 6 months we will start experimenting with chip implantation in the human brain”

[앵커]

Tesla CEO Elon Musk predicted that in the next half year he would be able to experiment with implanting a wireless chip into the human brain.

The key is to get permission from the US Food and Drug Administration.

This was reported by reporter Han Young-kyu.

Billionaire innovator Elon Musk expects to be able to conduct human experiments by inserting computer chips into human brains within the next six months.

He said he prepared very carefully for his first human test and submitted most of the necessary documents to the US Food and Drug Administration.

Elon Musk announced that he would conduct an experiment to restore sight to the blind through Neuralink, which he founded.

Another was an experiment that allowed people who couldn’t move their muscles, like Dr. Stephen Hawking, to use a smartphone faster than normal people.

However, these plans are progressing more slowly than expected.

It was originally said to aim to get regulatory approval by 2020, but it was pushed back to the end of October this year, and this deadline was also pushed back without any explanation.

Meanwhile, a company called Synchron received regulatory approval and first implanted a chip in the brain last July and is conducting clinical trials.

Whether Musk’s grandiose plan to allow humans to manipulate complex electronics with thoughts alone through implanted chips and eventually overcome physical disabilities and cure brain diseases will be realized depends on whether the experiment is conducted correctly with permission from the Food and Drug Administration.
