Line between warrior and machine blurs as China and U.S. military use artificial intelligence


The arrest of Harvard Professor Charles Lieber for failing to reveal his work for the Chinese is more than alarming. One of the world's leading experts in nanotechnology, Mr. Lieber contributed to China's Thousand Talents Program and assisted China in its military arms race with the United States, whether knowingly or not. Americans should be concerned that China is pursuing military nanotechnology solutions, including linking soldiers' brains directly to computers. Since at least 2000, when President Clinton proclaimed his National Nanotechnology Initiative, U.S. government agencies have been heavily engaged in nanotechnology research. A significant part of the work has been funded by the Defense Department, and the long-term goal is to create a new kind of warrior linking the human brain to machines, to millions of sensors and to the computer cloud.

Why Elon Musk Created Neuralink -


Many people wonder why Elon Musk created neuralink. If you aren't exactly sure what is Neuralink in simple terms it is connecting your brain to computers. "You want to be extra rigorous about making the best possble think you can. Find everything that's wrong with it and fix it. Seek negative feedback, particularly from friends."

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's mind-reading technology could be about to take a big leap forward ZDNet


The dreams of those who want to connect their brains to computers could be about to take another step towards reality, as Elon Musk took to Twitter to tease an "awesome" update around his neural interface start-up Neuralink. Commenting on the findings of analysis firm ARK, which ranked deep learning as the number one "big idea of 2020", Musk Tweeted that the impact of high-bandwidth combined with high-precision neural interfaces is "underappreciated". "Neuralink may have this in a human as soon as this year," he added. And then in another Tweet, the Tesla CEO said rather mysteriously: "Wait until you see the next version vs what was presented last year. Elon Musk took to Twitter this week to tease an "awesome" update to his 31 million followers. In a presentation a few months ago, Musk effectively pitched the first findings of Neuralink, which he believes down the line will lead to a perfect mesh of humans and artificial intelligence. The three year-old company is working on ...

Elon Musk hires AI that 'reports directly' to him 24/7


Musk, who has crossed swords with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and former Alibaba Chairman Jack Ma over the role of AI, is finally giving the technology some space, like in his startup Neuralink which is creating a brain-machine interface. Tagging Lex Fridman, popular host of the Artificial Intelligence podcast on YouTube, Musk tweeted: "At Tesla, using AI to solve self-driving isn't just icing on the cake, it the cake" @lexfridman It reports directly to me & we meet/email/text almost every day. My actions, not just words, show how critically I view (benign) AI," the Tesla CEO added. For him, AI can only do'benign' tasks and those jobs too are being evaluated critically by him. Tesla is using advanced AI for vision and planning, supported by efficient use of inference hardware to achieve a general solution to full self-driving. The company is building silicon chips that power its full self-driving software from the ground up, taking every small architectural and micro-architectural improvement into account while pushing hard to squeeze maximum silicon performance-per-watt. The company is applying cutting-edge research to train deep neural networks on problems ranging from perception to control. "Our per-camera networks analyze raw images to perform semantic segmentation, object detection and monocular depth estimation.

The small wonderful ways AI is changing our lives for the better


It's easy to get cynical about artificial intelligence (AI). China is using facial recognition against the Uighurs. NYT: 'One Month, 500,000 Face Scans: How China Is Using A.I. to Profile a Minority' Google's participating in the development of autonomous weapons. The Intercept: 'Google Continues Investments in Military and Police AI Technology Through Venture Capital Arm' And facial recognition programmes are still struggling to recognise black faces. But last year I also saw another side.

Google, Facebook, Neuralink Sued For Weaponized AI Tech Transfer, Complicity To Genocide In China


Extracting humanities digital footprints in breach of the Nuremberg Laws, FTC Act (15 U.S.C. §§ 41–58 and Engaging in irresponsible and unsafe Research and development of Artificial General Intelligence or Artificial Super Intelligence that could enslave or kill off humanity or give the power to the defendants to enslave humanity in numerous ways on the 5G and other developing networks.

Elon Musk wants to link brains directly to machines


ELON MUSK, perhaps the world's most famous entrepreneur, is sometimes referred to as "the Trump of technology"--not for political reasons, but because of his habit of making, at short notice, spectacular pronouncements that stretch the bounds of credibility. On July 16th he was at it again, unveiling a new type of brain-machine interface (BMI). If human beings do not enter a symbiosis with artificial intelligence (AI), he declared, they are sure to be left behind. And he, the announcement implied, was going to be the man who stopped that happening. Connecting brains directly to machines is a long-standing aspiration.

Elon Musk said his AI-brain-chips company could 'solve' autism and schizophrenia


Elon Musk said he thinks his neural-technology company, Neuralink, will be able to "solve" schizophrenia and autism. On the latest "Artificial Intelligence" podcast with Lex Fridman, published Tuesday, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO was asked about the most exciting effects he foresees for Neuralink, whose goal is to develop an AI-enabled chip that could be implanted in a person's brain to record brain activity and potentially stimulate it. "So Neuralink I think at first will solve a lot of brain-related diseases," Musk said. "So could be anything from, like, autism, schizophrenia, memory loss -- like, everyone experiences memory loss at certain points in age. Parents can't remember their kids' names and that kind of thing."
