Elon Musk’s Neuralink ‘Show & Tell’ Event Moved to November 30

Billionaire Elon Musk announced on Sunday — on Twitter, of course — that Neuralink’s ‘show and tell’ event will be moved down a month to November 30. Musk did not give further details on why the event will be delayed.

The event was originally scheduled to occur on October 31.

Neuralink is one of Musk’s many urgent pursuits — he’s currently spread very thinly across Tesla, SpaceX (which has rockets and Starlink), The Boring Company, the whole Twitter thing, and solving the world’s population crisis, among other things.

Co-founded by Musk with Max Hodak of Transcriptic in 2016, the San Francisco-based, still privately-held neurotechnology company aims to create androids, basically, by linking humans to computers via wireless computer chips (or ultra-high bandwidth brain-computer interfaces) implanted in the brain. The intent is to help cure neurological conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s, as well as spinal cord injuries, essentially connecting humans to computers, and fusing humans with artificial intelligence.

He said in 2019 that the company is targeting to have regulatory approval by the end of 2020. But as usual with Musk, who’s notorious for overpromising, the company has yet to receive regulatory approval or bring a product to market.

The company last gave updates in April 2021, where they showed a monkey playing Pong using its Neuralink.
