Elon Musk's Neuralink raises over 0 million from Google Ventures and others

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s brain-chip startup, Neuralink, has raised $205 million in a funding round led by Dubai-based venture capital firm Vy Capital, with participation from Alphabet Inc’s Google Ventures, the company said Thursday.

Neuralink aims to implant wireless brain computer chips to help cure neurological conditions including Alzheimer’s, dementia and spinal cord injuries and fuse humankind with artificial intelligence.

The company released a video in April showing a male macaque playing a videogame “Mind Pong” after getting chips embedded on each side of its brain.
