Google "Brain Implants" Could Make Learning Obsolete in 20 Years, Says AI Expert

#artificialintelligence

Top artificial intelligence (AI) expert and founder and CEO of Fountech.ai Nikolas Kairinos said in a Daily Star interview that within 20 years we could have implants put into our heads that will allow us to learn everything. "You won't need to memorize anything," said the specialist to the Daily Star. The brain implants will also mean that there is no need to google anything as the answers will simply pop up in your head, claims Kairinos. "Without making a sound or typing anything, you can ask something like'how do you say this in French?' and instantly you'll hear the information from the AI implant and be able to say it," he said.


Elon Musk promises 'awesome' update to Neuralink brain implant

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Elon Musk has improved his controversial Neuralink technology that he hopes will allow people to hook themselves up to a computer and become cyborgs. Musk's company Neuralink is building tiny and flexible'threads' which are ten times thinner than a human hair and can be inserted directly into the brain. Musk, the billionaire boss of Neuralink, SpaceX and Tesla, took to his usual stomping ground of Twitter to parade his latest development. He called the improvements to Neuralink and the scary robot that will insert the device into human brains'truly transformational' and'awesome' in several tweets. The tiny brain implants, called brain-machine interfaces (BMIs), connects the human brain to external devices and enables them to control computers.


Elon Musk launches Neuralink, a venture to merge the human brain with AI

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface venture called Neuralink, according to The Wall Street Journal. The company, which is still in the earliest stages of existence and has no public presence whatsoever, is centered on creating devices that can be implanted in the human brain, with the eventual purpose of helping human beings merge with software and keep pace with advancements in artificial intelligence. These enhancements could improve memory or allow for more direct interfacing with computing devices. Musk has hinted at the existence of Neuralink a few times over the last six months or so. More recently, Musk told a crowd in Dubai, "Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence."


Meet the Guys Who Sold "Neuralink" to Elon Musk without Even Realizing It

MIT Technology Review

Last week, we learned that Elon Musk will start a mind-computer interface company called Neuralink. The name added a brainy new entry to Musk's growing scroll of big ideas--Tesla, SolarCity, SpaceX, the Hyperloop. But as the news of Musk's nascent venture to merge man and machine spread across social media, an electrical engineer in Ohio named Pedram Mohseni must have been slapping his forehead. That's because in January he'd agreed to sell the name Neuralink to Musk without realizing it. Mohseni, a professor at Case Western Reserve University, and his scientific partner, Randolph Nudo of Kansas University Medical Center, had owned the trademark on "NeuraLink" since 2015 after creating their own startup company.


Elon Musk's Neuralink implant will "merge" humans with AI

#artificialintelligence

Tesla founder Elon Musk has launched tech startup Neuralink to build implants that connect human brains with computer interfaces via artificial intelligence. The approaching technology would see groups of minuscule, flexible electrode "threads" implanted into the human brain by a neurosurgical robot. These threads detect and record the electrical signals in the brain, and transmit this information outside the body. This has the potential to create a scalable high-bandwidth brain-machine interface (BMI) system, meaning that it connects the brain to an external device to form a brain-machine interface. The goal is to use Neuralink to understand and treat different forms of brain or spine-related disorders.
