Musk Presents Advances In Its Project To Connect Minds And Machines

 

For Musk, being able to control the machines with the mind is vital to avoid being overtaken by artificial intelligence. In his words, humans face the risk of being relegated to the role of “domestic cats.”

Billionaire Elon Musk reported that his startup Neuralink is making progress in an interface that connects the brain with computers, which is expected to begin to be tested in people next year.

“We can make a complete brain-machine interface,” Musk said with members of Neuralink at an event in San Francisco to showcase their advances and recruit talent in the fields of software, robotics, neuroscience, among others.

The project can “achieve a kind of symbiosis with artificial intelligence,” said Musk, a futuristic entrepreneur who also heads Tesla and SpaceX.

Musk says that a link that unites minds with machines is vital if people want to avoid being overtaken by artificial intelligence that, according to him, confronts humans at the risk of being relegated to a role of “domestic cats.”

Neuralink showed the first version of a tiny sensor that can be implanted in a brain through a small incision made by a robot specially built to perform this task of high precision.

“They are mini electrodes, and the robot implants them delicately,” said Musk, noting that there may be thousands of these electrodes connected to a brain.

“It’s something that will not be stressful to place, that will work well and does not require physical connections,” he said.

The chip will communicate by air with a hearing aid that sends information to a smartphone application, according to Neuralink.

For now, the goal is for a person with implants to control the phone with thoughts, but the technology can eventually be extended to other devices, such as robotic arms.

“It has tremendous potential,” said Musk. “We hope to have it in a human patient before the end of next year.”

According to a Neuralink neurosurgeon, one of the first objectives of this technology is to treat patients with neurological diseases. But in the long term, it is to make the implants so safe, reliable and straightforward that they can enter the field of elective surgery for those who want to empower their brain with the power of a computer.

Musk said that the goal is to place one of these implants in the brain is a procedure as simple as a laser eye surgery.

Apple Develops 6G Technology And It May Be Tried In 2030

After releasing the 5G iPhone some time ago, the company made by Steve Jobs reportedly started developing 6G technology. It was stated that the company was currently opening job vacancies.

The vacancies are intended for research technicians whose job is to develop 6G technology. Later they will be placed in Apple offices in Silicon Valley and San Diego, where they develop wireless technology and chip designs.

It was stated that this technology could be used in 2030. And interestingly, the analysts say that 6G can be 100 times faster than the 5G technology which is considered to be very fast at this time.

Cool! Apple Watch Develops Technology To Detect Early Heart Failure

Apple Watch is already known to save a person’s life. The feature embedded in the smartwatch notifies the user’s condition which can also be seen by others.

And now, Apple announced that they will expand the technology. The new technology will be studied first and the study was led by Canadian cardiologist Dr. Heather Ross of the Ted Rogers Center for Heart Research.

They will later develop the Apple Watch to have the ability to detect heart failure early.

“We believe that the biometric data obtained from the Apple Watch can provide comparable, precise, and accurate measurements of fitness, prognostic markers, and early warning signals, compared to traditional diagnostics,” said Ross.

With this technology, the chance to survive is even higher because we already know our disease from an early age.

The study will last three months and include a follow-up of two years. Participants will be given Apple Watch Series 6 which includes a blood oxygen monitor and an iPhone.

Cool! Nigerian Students Build Robots to Care for Covid-19 Patients

Several Nigerian students have created robots that are expected to help treat Covid-19 patients in hospitals. This robot can be controlled remotely, thereby reducing exposure to the Covid-19 virus from patients to medical personnel.

This robot is equipped with the ability to measure temperature, transport drugs and medical personnel can communicate with patients through cameras and screens.

The robot is in the form of a cabinet with wheels that are controlled remotely and is nicknamed “MAIROBOT”.

In one demonstration, a school nurse fills MAIROBOT with drugs, while a student uses a controller and glasses to look through the camera, then moves the machine through the corridor and into a mock isolation room to scan a student’s forehead for his temperature.

“I hope MAIROBOT can reduce and reduce the risks faced by these health workers — I want health workers to be safer,” said Nabila Abbas.

The robotics team at Glisten International Academy in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, started to collaborate online with MAIROBOT, then met to complete a project in their lab.

However, MAIROBOT, which took about three months to build, is still in its early stages.

During the demonstration, the doors to the isolation room must be left open, and the robots can only carry drugs. So, the patient in question will take the medicine himself, while the nurse watches the camera.

“We are currently refining it,” said David Adeniyi, the teacher who oversees the robotics team.

MAIROBOT is expected to be commercially available one day. On the other hand, Abbas believes that the use of robots in the medical industry will not stop just for handling Covid-19.

“Other infectious diseases can also be treated with MAIROBOT, such as Ebola, Lassa fever and all these infectious viruses,” he said.
