Elon Musk used a Neuralink chip to teach a monkey to play on a computer with the power of thought
Billionaire Elon Musk's company Neuralink showed in the video how a monkey uses a chip to move the cursor and play a video game. Writes about it Ukrinfrom.
The video shows a 9-year-old monkey Pager. The animal was implanted with a chip six weeks before filming.
First, the primate was taught to play video games with a joystick for a reward. He received banana smoothies through a metal straw. While Pager played, the Neuralink device recorded information about how his neurons react to the movement of the cursor and learn to anticipate the movement of his hands depending on the movement of the cursor.
After the brain was studied, the joystick was disconnected from the computer. The pager continued to use the joystick, but was actually moving the cursor with the power of his thought.
Later, the joystick was taken away from Pager, but he continued to play ping-pong even without it. The primate easily controlled the power of thought.
