Elon Musk Built a Surgical Robot: What Will He Think of Next?
In a recent advance for the Neuroscience community, Elon Musk debuted the Neuralink Surgical Robot.
Musk is also a founder of Neuralink, whose purported mission is to help humans keep up with advances in Artificial Intelligence. Apparently, Elon Musk does not want the Robots taking over.
The Surgical Robot will study, diagnose, and treat medical issues that affect the human brain. In the long term, his goal is for the Surgical Robot to hedge against the threat of A.I. by linking the human brain to a computer.
The Robot features a head, body, and base. The helmet-shaped head stabilizes the patient's head during surgery. The Robot Head also holds cameras and sensors to map the patient's brain during surgery.
