Is Elon Musk Building A Jurassic Park?

“We could probably build Jurassic Park if we wanted to,” Max Hodak tweeted Saturday. “Wouldn’t be genetically authentic dinosaurs but [shrugging emoji]. Maybe 15 years of breeding + engineering to get super exotic novel species.”

In the film “Jurassic Park,” scientists working for a wealthy industrialist are able to genetically engineer dinosaurs and are working toward opening a theme park to showcase them when things go wrong.

Launched in 2017, Neuralink works on creating brain-computer interfaces with the hopes to one day help those afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, paralysis, and spinal cord injuries, among others.

In August 2020, Musk debuted Gertrude, a pig that Neuralink had implanted a small computer chip in its brain. The chip was planted near the part of the brain that controls its snout, so as Gertrude ate, a computer showed waves and spikes being emitted from the chip, monitoring Gertrude’s neural response.

Hodak didn’t further explain what technology Neuralink could use to engineer the long-extinct dinosaurs.
