Billionaire Elon Musk said Sunday that the "show & tell" involving his brain-computer interface company Neuralink has been postponed.
The event, originally scheduled for Oct. 31, has been rescheduled for Nov. 30, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO said in a tweet that provided no further information.
Musk started Neuralink in 2016 with the goal of creating an implantable device that would allow humans to directly interact with computers via their brains rather than input devices such as touch screens, keyboards or even voice assistants. He has pitched the project as a means of helping humanity keep up with advances in artificial intelligence, but more recently the focus has been on creating a device to help restore capabilities to people with disabilities.
Neuralink demonstrations in 2020 and 2021 have shown the technology at work with pigs and monkeys, but Musk has reportedly been frustrated with the rate of progress at the company. Back in December, he said that the project was working well in monkeys and that he hoped to test this year it in humans, such as those with quadriplegia, pending approval by the Food and Drug Administration. Neuralink's efforts have yet to receive FDA approval.
Neuralink didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
