Early Life

Childhood and family

Elon Reeve Musk was born on June 28, 1971, in Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa. His mother is Maye Musk (née Haldeman), a model and dietitian born in Saskatchewan, Canada, but raised in South Africa.

Education

Aware it would be easier to enter the United States from Canada, Musk applied for a Canadian passport through his Canadian-born mother. While awaiting the documentation, he attended the University of Pretoria for five months; this allowed Musk to avoid mandatory service in the South African military. Arriving in Canada in June 1989, Musk failed to locate his great-uncle in Montreal and instead stayed at a youth hostel.

Elon Musk’s brain chip start-up Neuralink implants brain-computer interface device in first human

 

The first human patient has received an implant (brain-computer interface device) from brain-chip startup Neuralink on Sunday (28th January, 2024) and is recovering well, the company’s billionaire founder Elon Musk said. “Initial results show promising neuron spike detection,” Musk stated in a post on his social media platform X on Monday (29th January, 2024).

 

USFDA (The U.S. Food and Drug Administration) had granted clearance to the company last year to conduct its first trial to test its implant on humans, a crucial milestone in the startup’s goal to help patients overcome paralysis and a host of neurological ailments.

Elon Musk shared a video of Optimus (Tesla humanoid robot) walking like a human

 

Elon Musk has shared a video of a humanoid robot (AI robot being developed by his company, Tesla) called Optimus. Optimus is ‘capable of performing tasks that are unsafe, repetitive or boring’. In the video the robot can be seen walking. The video has created chatter. “Going for a walk with Optimus,” Elon Musk wrote.

 

The video shows a robot walking sluggishly from one end of a room to another. A few people can be seen observing the movements of the robot. Within a few hours of posting, the clip went viral and garnered over nine million views and accumulated tons of comments from people.

A Delaware court threw out Elon Musk’s $56 billion Tesla pay package on Tuesday

 

After a Delaware court threw out Elon Musk’s $56 billion pay package on Tuesday (30th January, 2024), the Tesla CEO and a board widely regarded as captive to him need to find a way to negotiate a replacement contract. It is not going to be easy.

 

The ruling is bound to spur on investors who for years have been continuously raising concerns about Tesla board independence. This could possibly be a turning point for Musk, who recently stated he was uncomfortable transforming Tesla into an AI leader if his control did not rise with a fresh pay package.
