Elon Musk hold up Neuralink’s ‘show & tell’ event by a month

Elon Musk delays Neuralink's 'show & tell'

Elon Musk, Tesla CEO and billionaire tech tycoon, delayed the “show and tell” event for Neuralink until next month on November 30.

The event was originally scheduled for Halloween, but SpaceX’s rocket developer pushed it back via Twitter. Musk created Neuralink in 2016 to allow humans to interact with computer devices via an implantable brain-machine interface.

Musk stated publicly that he would like to use Neuralink (based in San Francisco) to treat conditions such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other neurodegenerative disorders.

If successful, the technology would combine artificial intelligence and human capabilities via a brain chip.

Musk previously expressed interest in testing the technology on humans and said he would seek approval by the Food and Drug Administration. However, the agency has yet to approve Neuralink’s technology using human participants.

According to Reuters, Musk reached out to Synchron Inc. to inquire about investment opportunities because of the slow regulatory approval for the brain chip devices.

The company hasn’t yet announced what information or technology will be presented at the event next year.

Musk is currently closing the $40 billion Twitter deal.
