Max Hodak, the president of Neuralink, a company that aims to connect human brains with computers which was cofounded by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, has said he left the company a few weeks ago. Hodak did not provide any reason for his departure.
In a post on Twitter on Saturday, Hodak, who is also a Neuralink cofounder, said he learned “a ton” at the company and that he remained a “huge cheerleader” for it. Although Hodak did not reveal where he was going next, he mentioned he was moving on to new things. In a response to a comment, he did seem to cross out “Jurassic Park” as one possible option, a reference to his recent statement that Neuralink could probably build a real-life version of Steven Spielberg’s dinosaur clone park.
“Wouldn’t be genetically authentic dinosaurs but,” Hodak stated on Twitter on April 4, adding a man shrugging emoji. “Maybe 15 years of breeding + engineering to get super exotic novel species.”
