Elon Musk's Neuralink and Nuclear intimidation in the Ukraine War

25 April 2022

By GP course scholars

Session I: 1600-1630 hours
The rise of Neuralink: A changing paradigm of humanity
Elon Musk's Neuralink is preparing itself for clinical trials as a fresh round of funding bolsters its aim to use brain-implantable chips for therapeutic reasons. This raises fresh questions about the idea of the post-human and what Musk’s penchant for the same means for humanity.
