Elon Musk Unveils Neuralink`s Plans For Brain-Reading `Threads` and a Robot To Insert Them

Neuralink, the secretive company developing brain-machine interfaces, held a press conference today where it unveiled some of the technology it`s been developing to the public for the first time. The first big advance is flexible "threads," which are less likely to damage the brain than the materials currently used in brain-machine interfaces and create the possibility of transferring a higher volume of data. "The threads are 4 to 6 um in width, which makes them considerably thinner than a human hair," reports The Verge. The other big advance that Neuralink unveiled is a machine that automatically embeds the threads into the brain. From the report: In the future, scientists from Neuralink hope to use a laser beam to get through the skull, rather than drilling holes, they said in interviews with The New York Times. Early experiments will be done with neuroscientists at Stanford University, according to that report. The company aims for human trials as soon as the second quarter of next year, according to The New York Times. The system presented today, if it`s functional, may be a substantial advance over older technology. BrainGate relied on the Utah Array, a series of stiff needles that allows for up to 128 electrode channels. Not only is that fewer channels than Neuralink is promising -- meaning less data from the brain is being picked up -- it`s also stiffer than Neuralink`s threads. That`s a problem for long-term functionality: the brain shifts in the skull but the needles of the array don`t, leading to damage. The thin polymers Neuralink is using may solve that problem. However, Neuralink`s technology is more difficult to implant than the Utah Array, precisely because it`s so flexible. To combat that problem, the company has developed "a neurosurgical robot capable of inserting six threads (192 electrodes) per minute [automatically]," according to the white paper. In photos, it looks something like a cross between a microscope and a sewing machine. It also avoids blood vessels, which may lead to less of an inflammatory response in the brain, the paper says. Finally, the paper says that Neuralink has developed a custom chip that is better able to read, clean up, and amplify signals from the brain. Right now, it can only transmit data via a wired connection (it uses USB-C), but ultimately the goal is to create a system than can work wirelessly. Currently, the company is testing the robot and threads on rats, but it`s hoping to actually begin working with human test subjects as early as next year. Story is developing...

BLM will move some functions to Grand Junction

Though it sounds like a good deal for Colorado, at least one conservation agency takes issue with Interior Secretary David Bernhardt`s decision to move the Bureau of Land Management`s headquarters from Washington, D.C., to Grand Junction. Rep. Scott Tipton, for example, who represents Colorado`s 3rd Congressional District, praised the move, saying he "could not be happier." He noted that the West contains 99 percent of federal lands and "local input provided to the BLM from our constituents will no doubt improve how federal lands are managed." The BLM, in a letter to Congress , outlined why it`s a good idea to move the agency. And Bernhardt, a former oil industry lobbyist, said in a statement said: …

`Hustlers` trailer gives us the J-Lo stripper heist movie we truly deserve

When Jennifer Lopez asks if you’re in, you say yes. So get on board with this trailer for Hustlers , loosely based on a true story, about a group of strippers scheming to fleece their sleazy, loaded clients out of more than just a few fistfuls of dollar bills.  J-Lo plays the ringleader, telling her fellow dancers that “the game is rigged” — and hey, don`t the post-crash Wall Street bros and execs they’re targeting deserve a little retribution? The heels are stacked and so is this cast: as well as Lopez, there’s Crazy Rich Asians star Constance Wu, Riverdale ’s Lil Reinhart, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, current internet queen Lizzo, and Cardi B in her feature debut. The superstar (herself a former stripper) was cast after director Lorene Scafaria slid into her Instagram DMs. Read more... More about Trailers , Jennifer Lopez , Trailer , Cardi B , and Hustlers
