'We could probably build Jurassic Park,' says co-founder of Elon Musk's Neuralink

The Independent - Tech 

Neuralink co-founder Max Hodak, who started the brain-computer interface company with Elon Musk, has claimed that humans have the technology to recreate Jurassic Park. "We could probably build jurassic park if we wanted to. "Maybe 15 years of breeding engineering to get super exotic novel species". It is unclear who Hodak is referring to when he says "we". Neuralink has demonstrated a chip implanted into the brain of a pig and a monkey, but does not appear to have made any announcements with regards to animal cloning. If Hodak is referring to scientists and genetic researchers as a whole, the prospect becomes more feasible – although is undeniably difficult. Scientists have cloned a number of animals, including wolves, dogs, cats, monkeys and, famously, sheep. A black-footed ferret, which is on the US endangered species list, has also been cloned, but scientists have not managed to create an extinct animal yet.
