Neuralink website says:

“We expect our first application to be computer control for people with spinal cord injury. There are many other potential future applications for the Link. These include restoring motor and sensory function and the treatment of neurological disorders”

Hi, Cho!

Today 18:32  

Cho

Hi Manuel   😀😀                                                                           

Today 18:34   

Manuel

So I’ve done some reading on the Neuralink and I think I understand better what you are getting at

Today 18:34   

Cho

About the possible applications                                                 

Today 18:35   

Manuel

Yes, it is meant as targeted medical device for spinal cord injuries first and foremost, the rest …

Today 18:35   

Cho

… is still futuristic  🤨                                                                    

Today 18:37

Manuel

But still, it would be possible in principle, right?

Today 18:38   

Cho

What would?                                                                                   

Today 18:40   

Manuel

Besides movement, restore senses and stuff like that

Today 18:40   

Cho

Well, maybe, depending on whether we can pinpoint the relevant brain area’s and the systems scale

Today 18:41   

Manuel

Maybe?   😰

Today 18:41   

Cho

Remember that the neuralink itself isn’t a finished product yet, and no human trials have taken place

Today 18:42

Manuel

Right. But the science is sound 🖖

Today 21:44   

Cho

We understand the brain better and better, but there still is a lot to discover. I can’t exclude the possibility, but …

Today 18:45   

Manuel

Again with the “but”! 🥺🥺

Today 18:45   

Cho

Hey, it’s my job to think critically about this stuff and whether it makes sense

Today 18:46   

Cho

Mostly, I don’t think the technology is there yet, and I don’t know if it will ever be

Today 18:47   

Manuel

So uploading and downloading your consciousness …?

Today 18:48   

Cho

… is still science-fiction. Even a working neuralink would not have those capabilities

Today 18:49   

Manuel

OK, that’s useful info. I’m nearly done with my story. There’s one more thing I want to check

Today 18:48   

Cho

Sure, see you later…  ☺️☺️☺️
