Hodak is an American entrepreneur and technologist who co-founded the controversial neurotechnology company with Elon Musk.
The company, known for putting a computer chip in a pig’s brain, could “probably build Jurassic Park” if it wanted to, Hodak said, referring to the 1993 hit film.
Neuralink is currently working on a technology that aims to allow people to connect their brains to a computer and effectively become cyborgs.
“We could probably build Jurassic Park if we wanted to,” Max Hodak tweeted. and to give some details: “They would not be genetically authentic dinosaurs, but [un emoji haussant les épaules]. Maybe 15 years of breeding + engineering to get some super exotic new species. ”
Hodak did not specify how the company’s own version of Jurassic Park would be built, but went on to suggest it could help biodiversity, the US Daily Mail informs us.
“Biodiversity is certainly valuable; conservation is important and makes sense,” he also tweeted.
“But why stop there? Why don’t we try more intentionally to generate new diversity?”
Hodak doesn’t seem disheartened by the film’s ending, based on Michael Crichton’s 1990 novel and starring Sam Neil, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum.
In the movie Jurassic Park, geneticists bring extinct dinosaurs back to life on an island near Costa Rica.
In the movie, dinosaur cloning was achieved by extracting dinosaur DNA from prehistoric mosquitoes preserved in amber.
But due to a failure of the park’s security system, dinosaurs, including a fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex, escape.
Billionaire philanthropist and park creator, played by the late Richard Attenborough, is ultimately responsible for several deaths.
