Neuralink CEO Max Hodak suddenly announced that he was leaving the company he founded with Elon Musk in 2016 . Hodak posted this on his Twitter page and said he had n’t worked with Neuralink in a few weeks .
Max Hodak did not explain the reasons for his departure . Instead, he wrote that he had learned a lot at Neuralink and would remain his supporter even after leaving. Elon Musk did not comment on this news and did not say goodbye to his partner in any way . It is not yet clear how much damage Max Hodak’s untimely resignation will do to Neuralink .
Elon Musk is used to resignations
The company recently demonstrated its brain implant technology on a monkey, and the monkey was implanted with a wireless chip that could play ping-pong with power without the help of a physical controller.
Musk is no stranger to high-profile executive breakups. Because Tesla’s top executives had left the company similarly before. While Hodak’s case is not an immediate sign of a severe division within the company, it certainly raises many questions.
