Neuralink Reveals Monkey Playing Video Game With Its Mind

Neuralink, Elon Musk’s start-up that is developing implantable brain-machine interfaces to connect the human brain to computers, has released a video which shows a monkey playing a video game using only its mind. Elon Musk shared the video of the monkey playing Pong on Twitter this morning.

Pager, a nine-year-old macaque monkey, had a Neuralink implanted about six weeks before the video was filmed. He was first taught to play an on-screen game with a joystick. The video shows Pager initially using the joystick to move a coloured square in the video game. Neuralink was able to use machine learning to anticipate where the monkey would move the square and predict its hand movements.
