With implantable brain chips, there is a risk that the devices could be hacked for malicious intentions and hackers could involuntarily turn users into “killing machines,” according to a Turkish IT specialist
An IT specialist, computer professional, or an IT professional may be: a person working in the field of information technology; a person who has undergone training in a computer-field-related colleges, universities and computer institutes; or. a person who has proven extensive knowledge in the area of computing.

And in the most severe scenario, hacking a Neuralink-like device could turn "hosts" into programmable drone armies capable of doing anything their "master" wanted. Autopilot software features in cars have already resulted in deaths; imagine what a hacked army of sentient beings could do.
Enter Neuralink, a Silicon Valley start-up backed by Elon Musk that has developed a neuroprosthetic device known as a brain-computer interface. Among other things, Musk claims this chip could cure tinnitus, the neurological condition that causes ringing in your ears, within five years.
The Silicon Valley company, which has already successfully implanted artificial intelligence microchips in the brains of a macaque monkey named Pager and a pig named Gertrude, is now recruiting for a “clinical trial director” to run tests of the technology in humans.
A brain implant or neural implant is a technological system that enables communication between the brain and electronic devices. Brain implants are placed inside the brain via a surgical procedure and can be used to monitor brain activity or stimulate parts of the brain.
A score of 130 or above is considered as high IQ, People with high IQ come out as exceptionally intelligent people. For example Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Issac Newton and considerably Elon Musk, they all fall in the category of people with high IQ.
Will The Neuralink Chip Make People Smarter? By dramatically reducing the time it takes to gather information, Neuralink will certainly render humankind a much smarter species than before, especially those that first take the step from human to cyborg by installing the N1 Neuralink Chip.
To contact Elon Musk, write a letter that's addressed to him and send it to Corporate Secretary, Tesla, Inc. 3500 Deer Creek Road, Palo Alto, CA 94304 United States. You can also reach out to Elon Musk over Twitter by using his Twitter handle @elonmusk.
Musk famously purchased $1.5 billion in the king of cryptocurrencies using spare cash on the EV maker's balance sheet, a highly unorthodox move since most companies abhor putting their war chests at risk.
A new report based on testimonials from Neuralink employees indicates unfavourable working conditions. Most employees complain about Musk's dissatisfaction with the pace of work 'even though we were moving at unprecedented speeds'. As per employees, the work culture at Neuralink is driven by fear.
Is it Possible to Remove Neuralink From the Brain? An article shared on the Know Your Mobile website, says that people who have had the N1 chip implanted can remove it at any time. However, experts said that removing the chip will mean performing another surgery and paying more equipment fees.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk could become the first person to ever accumulate a $1 trillion net worth, and it could happen as soon as 2024, says a new report. Musk is currently said to be the richest person in the world, overtaking former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos last year to claim the title, reports Teslarati.
Elon Musk's fortune has grown to astronomical proportions as a result of Tesla's share price, which tripled in value to more than $1 trillion (£801.7 billion) in 2021 - although it is now worth around $730 billion (£585.2 billion).
One of the more tongue-in-cheek examples of a brain-machine interface is Necomimi. Created by Japanese company Neurowear, the Necomimi reads human emotions through brain waves, sending the responses to a tail affixed to a user's behind.
Brain implants for epilepsy do not change an individual's personality or self-perceptions, the results of a study published in AJOB Neuroscience show. “Next-generation brain stimulation devices can modulate brain activity without human intervention, which raises new ethical and policy questions.
There are generally two options: leave the device implanted but inactive or remove the device (explantation). Here, we examine whether investigators of brain implant studies have an obligation to offer and cover the cost of device removal.
