Neuralink Brain Chip By Elon Musk Awaits FDA Approval

Neuralink Corp. by Elon Musk is working on a novel technology for patients with the potential of a brain stroke. It is a coin-sized chip projected for availability by May 2023, per the company's announcement at its Fremont, Calif, event headquarters on Wednesday evening. Neuralink is continuously working on the Neuralink Brain Chip, a composition of electrode-laced wires inserted into the skull by advanced robotics. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will likely approve the product for its first human trials within the next six months. Amidst all chaos at Twitter, Elon Musk has tasked Neuralink to be ahead of time in working on implants for other body parts, including the spinal cord to restore body movement post paralysis and an ocular implant to improve or restore human ...

Meta AI Make-A-Video can Generate Video Shorts Using Text

While the world is still trying to come to terms with DALL.E, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion, arguing a violation of intellectual rights to images randomly pulled from the Internet, the CEO of Meta (NASDAQ: META), Mark Zuckerberg, talks about the newly launched artificially intelligent (AI) program called Make-A-Video that creates text to videos using descriptions.   "All of these videos were generated by an AI system that our team at Meta built. We call it Make-A-Video. You give it a text description and it creates a video for you. We gave it descriptions like: "a teddy bear painting a self-portrait," "a baby sloth with a knitted hat trying to figure out a laptop," "a spaceship landing on mars," and "a robot surfing a wave in the ocean." This is pretty amazing progres...

Israeli Biotech Startup Renewal Bio Creates Synthetic Embryo

Renewal Bio, an Israeli biotech startup, wants to use the potential of cutting-edge stem cell research to help people live longer and better lives. Through this stem cell technology, the startup is on the mission to create synthetic embryos of people to harvest tissues for medical transplantations. In this research in stem-cell technology and artificial wombs, the founder of Renewal Bio and biologist at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Jacob Hanna, has started with mouse stem cells where he can form highly realistic-looking mouse embryos and keep them growing in an artificial womb for several days until they develop beating hearts, flowing blood, and cranial folds.  As per Hanna's research published in the Cell journal, this is the first time an embryo at an advanced...

How Elon Musk to Launch Optimus Humanoid is Self-Contradictory

The man who once accused Sophia robot of violence is now contradicting himself. Elon Musk launches the Optimus humanoid. Recently, Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) Chief Executive Elon Musk got a revelation. He discovered that overreliance on factory robots sent Tesla car manufacturing to "the 2018 fluff bot production hell" when humans were better for it.  To many, and the world afraid of losing their jobs to AI, this revelation could be a breath of relief, but no, don't just change your mind yet; there are many twists to this puzzle. Tesla man is not thinking of replacing bots but planning humanoids. Musk's Texas company now plans to deploy thousands of humanoids that are robots with near-human emotional skills. Within its factories, these humanoids, known as Tesla Bot or Optimus, will eve...

China Xpeng P5 Sedans Challenge Tesla Autonomous Driving

China Xpeng P5 Sedans are here to challenge Tesla's autonomous driving cars with the new ADAS technology. The Advanced Driver Assistance System, or ADAS, emulates Tesla's autonomous self-driving software that is programmed to auto-navigate across city streets. On Saturday, Xpeng, a car manufacturer in Guangzhou, said that certain of its P5 sedans equipped with lidar sensors would be able to acquire city Navigation Guided Pilot (NGP) software via over-the-air upgrades and drive autonomously in urban areas. Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Xpeng, He Xiaopeng, stated that it is the first Chinese automotive firm to launch an ADAS for city-level driving. With the roll-out of city NGP, Xpeng P5 Sedans, the company contributes to expanding ADAS usage scenarios from covering hig...

Shefali Bohra and Debra Babalola Got Dotplot for Breast Cancer

Dotplot is a monthly self-check guide for monitoring breast health at home. It's meant to help women catch breast cancer in its earliest stages by empowering and inspiring them to maintain a consistent self-examination schedule. Founded by Shefali Bohra and Debra Babalola, Dotplot helps women observe an anomaly in breast tissues over time. It is important to note that the product is not a machine that can immediately conclude if the anomaly is cancer or not. It needs clinical correlation. Dotplot requires users to go through a one-time onboarding process, during which they are prompted to provide information about their period cycle (if they have one) to provide an accurate date for their self-check. After entering their bra size and breast form, as well as sliding the handheld d...
