Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s neuroscience startup Neuralink on Friday unveiled a pig named Gertrude that has had a coin-sized computer chip in its brain for two months, showing off an early step toward the goal of curing human diseases with the same type of implant.
On the one hand it is amazing what Neuralink is doing, this chip could potentially cure a lot of diseases like Alzheimer, hearing problems, dementia etc, on the other hand this technology could also be used in harmful ways. This of course is true for many inventions and we can see that in the past these kind of things often find a military use. In the hands of a world leader who wants to control the population this could turn out to be an ideal tool. Let’s keep an eye on this one to.
