Is Elon Musk Capable Of Building Cyborgs? - Analytics India Magazine

#artificialintelligence

With the recent tweet on Neuralink, Elon Musk again hit the headlines this week where he stated that the company is going to update on the progress of this mysterious company in the coming month. In fact, the last major update came from this brain-machine interface company last year around the same time, where he spoke about the technology "threads," surpassing the traditional ones, which can be implanted in human brains to solve some of the brain disorders people are facing. He ultimately revealed his interest "to achieve a symbiosis with AI" by merging technology with human brains and not taking over. This raises a serious question -- can Elon Musk build cyborgs in the near future? SpaceX and Tesla CEO, Elon Musk has been known for bringing extraordinary ideas to life like electric cars, sending rockets to Mars, and creating solar cities, to name a few.


The Amalgamation of Human Brain and Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

The human brain has advanced over time in countering survival instincts, harnessing intellectual curiosity, and managing authoritative ordinances of nature. When humans got an idea about the dynamics of the environment, we started with our quest to replicate nature. While the human brain discovers ways to go beyond our physical capabilities, the combination of mathematics, algorithms, computational methods, and statistical models accumulated momentum after Alan Mathison Turing built a mathematical model for biological morphogenesis, and published a seminal paper on computing intelligence. Today, AI has developed from data models for problem-solving to artificial neural networks, a computational model predicated on the structure and functions of human biological neural networks. The brain, customarily perceived as an organ of the human body, should be understood as a biologically predicated form of artificial intelligence (AI).


AI In Human Resources – To AI or not to AI?

#artificialintelligence

Every department in a company has its own challenges. In the case of Human Resources, recruitment and onboarding processes, employee orientations, process paperwork, and background checks is a handful and many a time painstaking – mostly because of the repetitive and manual nature of the work. The most challenging of all is engaging with employees on human grounds to understand their needs. As leaders today are observing the AI revolution across every process, Human resources is no exception: there has been a visible wave of AI disruption across HR functions. According to an IBM's survey from 2017, among 6000 executives, 66% of CEO's believe that cognitive computing can drive compelling value in HR while half of the HR personnel believe this may affect roles in the HR organization.


Elon Musk claims mysterious brain chip will be able to cure depression and addiction: 'It's both great and terrifying'

The Independent - Tech

Elon Musk has revealed more details about his mysterious brain-computer chip startup Neuralink, claiming that it could be used to help cure addiction and depression. Mr Musk founded Neuralink in 2016, though few details about how the technology will work have been revealed. After receiving more than $158m (£125m) in funding, Neuralink announced in a 2019 presentation that it had developed a "sewing machine-like" device capable of connecting brains directly to computers. More information about Neuralink will be revealed on 28 August, Mr Musk said on Thursday, prompting Twitter user Pranay Pathole to ask the billionaire entrepreneur what future capabilities could be expected. "Can Neuralink be used to retrain the part of the brain which is responsible for causing addiction or depression? It'd be great if Neuralink can be used for something like addiction/ depression," he asked.


Humans Vs AI -- AI Daily - Artificial Intelligence News

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence has the potential to help solve some of the pressing problems raised by COVID and the 19 pandemics. Only humans can understand which business processes and functions are not working well and have an understanding of how they could be improved. It is up to us to find new and innovative ways to exploit the possibilities of AI. If we use the analogy of comparing apples with apples, man and artificial intelligence should be the same and not compared. But it is not the technology itself that will make the difference, but the people who use it.


Monkeying with the piano

Science

Neuroscience The anatomical organization of auditory cortical pathways in nonhuman primates (NHPs) shows remarkable similarities with humans. So why don't NHPs have a more speech-like communication system? Archakov et al. trained macaques to perform an auditory-motor task using a purpose-built piano. Mapping brain activity by functional magnetic resonance imaging showed that sound sequences activated the auditory midbrain and cortex. More importantly, sound sequences that had been learned by self-production also activated motor cortex and basal ganglia. This shows that monkeys can form auditory-motor links and that this is not the reason why they do not speak. Instead, the origin of speech in humans may have required the evolution of a command apparatus that controls the upper vocal tract. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 117 , 15242 (2020).


Machine learning helps grow artificial organs – Tech Check News

#artificialintelligence

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Ivannikov Institute for System Programming, and the Harvard Medical School-affiliated Schepens Eye Research Institute have developed a neural network capable of recognizing retinal tissues during the process of their differentiation in a dish. Unlike humans, the algorithm achieves this without the need to modify cells, making the method suitable for growing retinal tissue for developing cell replacement therapies to treat blindness and conducting research into new drugs.

In multicellular organisms, the cells making up different organs and tissues are not the same. They have distinct functions and properties, acquired in the course of development. They start out the same, as so-called stem cells, which have the potential to become any kind of cell the mature organism incorporates.

Why Business Must Strike A Balance With AI And Emotional Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

As we turn to AI to do more tasks for us, the need for emotional intelligence has never been greater. This was true even before coronavirus took hold. Now, imagine how important emotional intelligence is in creating environments where leaders must manage employees who in many cases are stressed, scared, and uncertain about what lies ahead. Still, while it's true that we need emotional intelligence in business management, that's not the only area where an empathic approach is necessary. First, what is emotional intelligence?
