Elon Musk Says Neuralink Human Trials Soon, Hopes To Get One Brain Chip Himself

0

Elon Musk’s current focus may be on Twitter following his $44 billion acquisition, but he is the visionary behind some of the world’s most innovative companies, including SpaceX, Tesla, The Boring Company, and, of course, Neuralink.

Elon Musk now claims that Neuralink’s new interface will allow people to communicate directly with a computer through their thoughts, using a device implanted in their brains. Also, Musk has clearly expressed that he wishes to get one chip for himself.

“We’ve submitted I think most of our paperwork to the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) and we think probably in about six months we should be able to have our first Neuralink in a human,” Musk said.

He added, “We’ve been working hard to be ready for our first human (implant), and obviously we want to be extremely careful and certain that it will work well before putting a device in a human.”

As per AFP, Neuralink’s human trials have been delayed by almost two full years. Earlier, Musk had claimed that Neuralink would be able to perform human trials by 2020.

Currently, coin-sized prototype chips have been implanted in Monkeys. At a recent Neuralink presentation, the Musk-owned start-up showed monkeys doing simple tasks — like moving a computer cursor, playing simple games through their Neuralink prototype.

As for real-world applications, Musk has promised that Neuralink’s efforts would aid in helping humans restore vision and mobility. “As miraculous as it may sound, we are confident that it is possible to restore full body functionality to someone who has a severed spinal cord,” Musk said.

Musk’s end-goal with Neuralink is to ensure that in future, A.I — as fast as it is progressing — doesn’t overcome humans.

Taking a Solo Cab Ride? Follow These Tips For A Safe Journey

Many people credit their personal development to their experiences as a lone traveller, be it exploring your own city or foreign lands. There is a widespread misconception that travelling alone is dangerous only for women. Not only women but men too get harassed. So today we are here to give some safety tips that can be used by men and women, when they are taking a cab ride alone.

Ask for ID proof from the driver

Check your driver’s licence, company ID or any other ID proof; and if possible, take a photo of the photo ID and email it to a friend or family member.

Keep GPS on

Keep your phone’s GPS turned on until you arrive at your destination. You will be safe if you do this.

Take a picture of the number plate

Never forget to take a picture of the cab’s number plate.

Avoid taking shortcuts

Many cab drivers suggest taking shortcuts. Always avoid that and never agree to take these shortcuts.

Always have a speed dial list

Keep the phone numbers of family and close friends on speed dial. You can contact them in a matter of seconds if necessary.

Keep your mobile charged

Before boarding the cab or going anywhere, make sure to charge your phone. Carry a backup battery, such as a power bank with you if possible. Check to see if the call and data pack is activated.

Have safety tools

Remember to keep pepper spray, as well as any sharp objects, in your purse or bag. Keep these items in the bag in a location, so that they are taken out quickly when needed.

A Place In The Sun’s Jonnie Irwin ‘determined to make the most’

Jonnie Irwin has shared an update with his fans, saying he’s ‘determined to make the most’ of the day after a ‘horrible’ night filled with ‘getting painkillers’.

Last month, the A Place In The Sun star publicly shared that he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and given ‘months to live’.

‘I don’t know how long I have left, but I try to stay positive and my attitude is that I’m living with cancer, not dying from it,’ he said, having revealed that cancer in his lung had spread to his brain.

However, on Saturday the 49-year-old shared a positive update with fans.

Taking to his Instagram stories, he said: ‘After a terrible night’s sleep, up and down and getting painkillers – oh it was just horrible – it’s a beautiful day.

‘So I’ve got a steroid inside me and some more painkillers and I’m determined to make the most of this.’

He then showed his followers a stunning view of his cycling route.

After sharing the news of his diagnosis, Jonnie said in a recent interview that he’s received ‘messages from people all over the world, wishing me well’.

‘Thousands of people have left me heart-warming comments on Instagram and I promise I will try to read them all,’ he told The Sun, boasting 131,000 followers on the social media platform.

‘They range from practical, scientific advice to ones from very religious people. There are thousands and thousands of them on my social media platforms and it’s been great.’

He added: ‘I’ve not hidden away but I’m not bothered about the limelight. I had no idea how much people really liked what I did and I know that now.’

Jonnie shares three children with his wife Jessica Holmes – three-year-old son Rex and two-year-old twins Rafa and Cormac.

England v Senegal: Gareth Southgate says ‘favourites’ tag means nothing before last-16 tie

Host nation: Qatar Dates: 20 November-18 December Coverage: Live on BBC TV, BBC iPlayer, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Sounds and the BBC Sport website and app. Day-by-day TV listingsFull coverage details

Gareth Southgate says England’s tag as “favourites” means nothing as they prepare for their World Cup last-16 meeting with Senegal.

The Three Lions meet African champions Senegal in their first knockout stage match in Qatar on Sunday at 19:00 GMT.

England qualified as Group B winners with a 3-0 win over Wales on Tuesday, while Senegal were runners-up behind the Netherlands in Group A.

“We will be considered favourites,” Southgate said.

“But that doesn’t really mean anything in a one-off game,” the England boss added.

“It doesn’t mean there isn’t any pressure for Senegal because every international team has great pressure in their own nation and externally as well.”

The meeting at Al Bayt Stadium is the first between the two nations and the winner will meet reigning champions France or Poland in the quarter-finals.

England ready to go the distance

While Senegal have reached the knockout stage of a World Cup for just the second time, England are bidding to make the last eight in consecutive tournaments for the first time since 2006, following their run to the semi-finals four years ago.

Southgate’s side were eliminated by an extra-time Croatia winner in Russia, before then losing out to Italy on penalties in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley last summer.

“We are two tournaments on from when we played Colombia at this stage in Moscow. I think our level of experience is better, our level of ambition is different,” Southgate told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“When we qualified from our group stage in Russia, we were probably celebrating quite a bit. This time was a great evening for our fans and we enjoyed the win, but we were already thinking of the next game.

“We know the focus has to be on this one game, nothing else.”

Asked about the prospect of penalties, Southgate added: “We are aiming to win the game and avoid extra time and penalties, but if we need to go 120 minutes or beyond that we have to be ready for that mentally and physically and I believe we are.”

‘We have huge respect for Senegal’

Senegal lifted the Africa Cup of Nations trophy for the first time in February as Aliou Cisse’s side overcame Egypt in a penalty shootout.

The Teranga Lions were dealt a huge blow prior to the World Cup when star player Sadio Mane was ruled out of the tournament with a knee injury he suffered playing for Bayern Munich less than two weeks before his nation’s opening match.

But victories over hosts Qatar and Ecuador, after an opening defeat by the Netherlands, ensured they have qualified for the knockout stage for the first time in 20 years.

“We have been very impressed with Senegal,” Southgate said.

“They are African champions and are very proud and have great spirit and belief in their team. They have some excellent individual players who can cause problems, but a good structure as well.

“Cisse has done a fantastic job. We know the size of the job ahead of us.”

Senegal coach Cisse was unable to attend his news conference on Saturday because of illness, raising doubts over whether he will be on the touchline.

‘Important Maguire has felt the love’

Southgate has so far seen his faith in Harry Maguire repaid by the Manchester United centre-back, despite his recent struggles at club level.

Partnering Manchester City defender John Stones at the heart of a back four, England kept successive clean sheets against the USA and Wales following a 6-2 thrashing of Iran.

Southgate believes the 29-year-old Maguire, who has started one league game for his club since August, has benefited from England’s style of play – as well as the appreciation shown by the fans.

“He knows we’ve got complete belief in him,” Southgate said. “He’s had huge performances for England in two tournaments where we’ve had a huge degree of progress as a country.

“As with most players of that quality, it is about confidence. You can see that when he plays in our team. We play in a way that suits him.

“He feels the love of the fans, that was clear in the stadium the other night, and that was brilliant to see because that hasn’t always been the case in the last few months with England.

“He’s helped to form a really important bedrock for our team.”

Kane aiming to come into best form

England captain Harry Kane won the golden boot at the 2018 World Cup, and although he is yet to score in Qatar – despite England’s tournament-high nine group-stage goals – he has contributed three assists.

The Tottenham striker had an injury scare earlier in the tournament after sustaining a knock against Iran but says he is now focused on hitting his peak.

“First and foremost my foot feels fine, no problem at all. It has been getting getter and better day by day,” Kane confirmed on Saturday.

“Form-wise I feel like I have been playing well. Goals are what I’m going to be judged on most, but I’m a calm individual and I always try to focus on doing my best for the team.

“I will continue to do that. If the goals come, great, it will give us a better chance of winning. It will be a tough game, but tomorrow hopefully I can get off the mark.

“I feel really good, I feel fit and sharp. I feel as match fit as I’m ever going to feel. Only time will tell. I can try and come into the best form with these knockout games.”

An ATM at Art Basel publicly ranks its users by their bank account balance : NPR

Brooklyn-based art collective MSCHF created an ATM that displays and ranks the cash balance of users.

MSCHF

What if everyone in a room knew your bank balance?

A Brooklyn art collective has created an ATM that lets people put their balance on display at the Art Basel in Miami Beach.

The ATM created by MSCHF puts the cash balance of those who use it on display at the art fair and ranks people by wealth. American DJ and music producer Diplo posted on Twitter a video of him taking the No. 1 spot on the ATM at $3 million on Friday.

“ATM Leaderboard is an extremely literal distillation of wealth-flaunting impulses,” said Daniel Greenberg, co-founder of MSCHF. “From its conception, we had mentally earmarked this work for a location like Miami Basel, a place where there is a dense concentration of people renting Lamborghinis and wearing Rolexes.”

The ATM was sold for $75,000 at Art Basel, Greenberg told NPR. Wherever the ATM crops up next is up to the discretion of the buyer, but top scores on the leaderboard will remain on the ATM after each showing to encourage people to top previous users.

MSCHF collaborated on the ATM with Perrotin, a contemporary art gallery that has also presented quirky pieces like a banana duct-taped to a wall priced at $120,000 in 2019.

MSCHF creates products that often go viral with the help of top influencers.

Kylie Jenner, with over 370 million followers on Instagram as of Dec. 3, shared a photo of a pair of imitation Birkenstock sandals made with leather from Hermès Birkin bags she snagged from MSCHF last year. Lil Nas X partnered with MSCHF to create “Satan Shoes” — an aftermarket Nike sneaker with drops of blood that sold out in under a minute. MSCHF was sued by Nike last year for selling their shoes, which cost $1,018 a pair, unauthorized.

The Witcher Blood Origin: Lenny Henry exalts ‘wonderful’ Deaf co-star

Sir Lenny’s character Chief Druid Balor bears incredible power and influence (Picture: Netflix)

Sir Lenny Henry has showered his The Witcher: Blood Origin co-star Amy Murray with praise, revealing he learnt some ‘rude things’ in sign language thanks to the Deaf actress.

The prequel series, which is set to premiere on Christmas Day on Netflix, is set more than 1,000 years before the events of The Witcher, when Elven society was still in its prime.

The show – which boasts a cast including Michelle Yeoh, Sophia Brown and Laurence O’Fuarain – will also depict the creation of the first Witcher centuries before Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) came into existence, as well as the Conjunction of the Spheres, which brought monsters into their world.

While speaking to Metro.co.uk and other media, Sir Lenny opened up about his experience of playing Chief Druid Balor in the upcoming drama, a scheming being with the ability to channel magic.

One of Balor’s close companions is Fenrik (Amy Murray), who just like the actress who plays her, is Deaf.

Sir Lenny, 64, admitted that at times, he was so ‘fascinated’ by Amy’s use of sign language that he ended up missing his cues in scenes.

‘I worked with Amy Murray and she’s Deaf. I had to do lots of scenes where she was signing, and I don’t sign,’ he explained.

‘So there was quite a lot of laughing as she was saying things, and I was missing my cues because I was fascinated with her fingers, and I wasn’t really listening to what the interpreter was saying. I was just trying to figure it out, because Balor was supposed to be able to understand sign language. So it was very difficult.’

The actor remarked how in his opinion, in the real world, ‘signing should be a language that’s mandatory at school’.

‘Amy taught me some things – she taught me “L E N N Y”. And she taught me some rude things. She taught me lots of things that I’m not even supposed to be able to tell you. But she taught me lots of rude things. I mean, hilarious,’ he said.

Sir Lenny recently starred in another fantasy show, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Picture: Netflix)

‘She also signs in a Scottish accent, which I think is genius. I loved the entire experience [of making The Witcher: Blood Origin]. It was all brilliant. But the biggest thing was working with Amy Murray, she was wonderful.’

A month ago, the celebrated entertainer released a book called The Book of Legends, which he described as a ‘quest for kids’, telling the tale of siblings Bran and Fran who embark on an exciting adventure.

‘It was inspired by Amy, one of the kids is Deaf,’ Sir Lenny said.

‘He’s called Bran and he’s Deaf, and he signs all the way through, and there’s a page for signing in the book.’

Another co-star the Comic Relief co-founder enjoyed fun memories with was Jacob Collins-Levy, who plays Eredin in the series.

‘When we were raising the monolith in a few of the scenes, we had to wait for a very long time because the monolith took a long time to raise. We sang David Bowie songs, he’s a big David Bowie fan,’ Sir Lenny recalled.

‘So we were there singing: “Fashion, turn to the left. Fashion!” There were all these elves joining in with us singing girl TVC 15, and: “Ground Control to Major Tom.” So we sang all the time. It was big fun, the whole thing.’

The Witcher: Blood Origin premieres on December 25 on Netflix.

Netherlands 3-1 USA: Dutch overcome USA to book quarter-final spot

The Netherlands survived a late scare against the United States to move into the Fifa World Cup quarter-finals with a ruthless display of finishing.

The US had the game’s biggest early chance when Christian Pulisic was denied by the legs of Dutch goalkeeper Andries Noppert and the failure to take that opportunity proved highly expensive.

Louis van Gaal’s side responded in the finest Dutch traditions in the 10th minute when Memphis Depay crowned a magnificent 21-pass move by turning in Denzel Dumfries’ cross.

The US battled hard but lacked a cutting edge and were punished in similar fashion with the final kick of the first half when Daley Blind arrived with perfect timing on the end of another Dumfries cut back.

The Dutch were given anxious moments when the US pulled a goal back in the 76th minute as Haji Wright’s freak deflection from Pulisic’s cross looped in at the far post.

But they restored their two-goal lead five minutes later when creator Dumfries turned scorer, side-footing in a volley at the far post from Blind’s cross.

Van Gaal’s Dutch march on

Van Gaal has been over this course before with the Netherlands, when he guided them to a World Cup semi-final in Brazil in 2014, only to lose on penalties to Argentina after a goalless draw in Sao Paulo.

And his vast experience means they cannot be under-estimated here as they set up a last eight meeting with either their 2014 conquerors Argentina or Australia, who meet at 19:00 GMT on Saturday.

No-one would pretend this is a classic Dutch side but they have a sprinkling of quality in all areas and the beauty of their first goal, which would have delighted the purists in their homeland, was a graphic demonstration of their capabilities.

Virgil van Dijk is the world-class defensive leader alongside Nathan Ake, while both full-backs Blind and Dumfries made crucial contributions.

Frenkie de Jong brings control to midfield and there is real threat in the shape of Depay, who scored his first goal of this World Cup, and one of the break-out stars of this World Cup, Cody Gakpo.

It was a display that delighted the band of Dutch fans inside Khalifa International Stadium as Van Gaal’s side march on.

Pulisic miss proves costly

USA react at full-time
The USA have failed to win all 24 World Cup matches in which they conceded the first goal of the game, losing 19 times in the process

The States’ main man Christian Pulisic looked close to tears after the final whistle as he reflected on the chance that got away in those opening moments, an opportunity that might have made this a very different tie.

Pulisic was sent through on goal by Tyler Adams’ clever delivery but the outstretched leg of Dutch keeper Noppert made the block. Pulisic should have scored and he knew it.

The US were soon in arrears and could never get close enough to the Netherlands, apart from Wright’s goal, which was heavily laced with good fortune.

The left side of their defence was brutally exposed by the Dutch for all three goals and this, mixed with poor finishing, meant their World Cup ends in the first knockout round.

There is something for them to build on after getting out of the group stages here, but there will also be disappointment at the sense of a missed opportunity. They will depart Qatar and start their preparations for the Fifa World Cup 2026, which they will jointly host with Canada and Mexico.

A man and his beloved dog have died after a collision in North Yorkshire.

Craig Dixon, 39, was walking his dog Duchess in Guisborough on Friday afternoon when they were struck by a silver Citroen C3.

Several bystanders rushed to help the pair and waited with them until an ambulance arrived.

Mr Dixon was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at hospital, while Duchess also died as a result of injuries sustained in the accident.

A 38-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

He remains in police custody being questioned.

A statement from Cleveland Police read: ‘Our thoughts and sympathy are with Mr Dixon’s family at this extremely difficult time.

The improved LinkedIn messaging experience will make it easier for the members around the globe to find and respond to the messages that matter most, said the company.

Microsoft-owned LinkedIn has announced a new feature — “Focused Inbox” for a better messaging experience on the platform.

The improved LinkedIn messaging experience will make it easier for the members around the globe to find and respond to the messages that matter most, said the company.

The Focused Inbox feature will offer a dual-tabbed experience that will categorise users’ incoming messages into “Focused” and “Other”.

Focused will contain the most relevant new opportunities and outreach, while Other will contain the remainder of users’ conversations.

“With conversations up nearly 20 per cent since last year, we’re seeing more professionals on LinkedIn are turning to messaging to connect and engage with each other. Early feedback we’ve heard is that it’s helped our members efficiently keep track of and respond to ongoing conversations and opportunities,” said LinkedIn.

The company said that it is gradually rolling out Focused Inbox to all members globally.

Users will soon get a notification at the top of their LinkedIn Inbox to try the New Focused Inbox, where they will be able to opt into this new experience.

Last month, LinkedIn rolled out a new feature that allows users on Android and the Web to schedule posts to send at a later time.
