With Neuralink, Elon Musk Wants To Graft Into Our Brain An Implant Capable Of Controlling A Smartphone Or A Computer.

What do you think ? Able to control a phone or computer. What do you think ?Able to control a phone or computer. What do you think ?Able to control a phone or computer. What do you think ?

So, to sum up, Neuralink is in the process of developing a technical solution of electrodes based on flexible wires that can be implanted in the brain by a robot and controlled by an integrated circuit in a very small box that can be integrated under the skull.

According to the company, the first applications of this technology will make it possible to repair humans suffering from various pathologies, while in a second stage, it will be a question of increasing the capacities of humans who wish it via the direct connection of the brain with a AI.

To quote Olivier Ezratty, contrary to what one might think, for the moment Neuralink above all offers incremental innovation in miniaturization compared to existing techniques, such as treatment techniques for Parkinson's disease or the various projects gait control for tetraplegics.

It is quite likely that Neuralink will focus primarily on repairing disabilities before seriously starting their work on the connection between the brain and an AI.

But if they were to accelerate their efforts on the side of the human/machine connection, it would probably remain fairly basic, namely focused on inputs and outputs (for example querying a search engine, or publishing of a tweet).

The arguments that lead to think this are that the brain is too complex to be able to write directly in it, for example to make you memorize books or voluminous information. In fact, the number of synapses involved for these kinds of tasks is such that for Neuralink to do the job, its implants would have to be 10 or even 100 times smaller (otherwise the necessary implant would be bigger than the brain) .

So, probably nothing to panic about. At this stage, the best thing is still to learn and observe, and perhaps to define what is ethically acceptable or not, in order to support the subject in a slightly more enlightened way. I have the impression that apart from a few health professionals, technophiles and individuals interested in transhumanist ideas, most decision-makers are completely helpless on this theme.

I see the headlines of current newspapers and articles and it's frankly laughable like "Elon Musk is turning us into cyborgs" and other such bullshit. Thank you for putting a little reason and facts in this mess!

In the longer term though… say within a century or two – we may have the beginnings of science fiction technology (Peter F Hamilton…)

To the extent that Elon Musk wants to provide technological solutions, develop diagnostic tools and therapies for people with neurological or psychiatric disorders, that's fine. As soon as one leaves the medical framework, its fanciful ambitions (which I respect by the way) do not really suit me. This raises an ethical issue, I am sure. Could this project become a violation of our conscious life, of our thoughts, of our intimacy?

Implanting an AI chip in a human brain , good or bad idea?human, good or bad idea?human, good or bad idea?human, good or bad idea?human, good or bad idea?human, good or bad idea?human, good or bad idea?

The idea in itself is not bad, insofar as this "chip" would aim to correct or cure a neurological condition that cannot be treated by other means. It is also for this main reason that we seek to develop the brain implant. For example, to restore the use of one or more limbs to a paralyzed person, to fight against Alzheimer's or other degenerative diseases, not to "enhance" a healthy individual, for whom the game would not necessarily be worth the candle... This is not an operation of the appendix or a simple circumcision that we are talking about here! An internal neuro-prosthesis requires perforating the cranial box and installing a foreign body inside, where there is already our dear brain,

If our brain was implanted in a robot, could we live forever if our brains were properly preserved? Basically the only living tissues would be those in the brain .brain.brain.brain....

Nope. Just like the rest of our body, our brain is made up of cells. These cells are not immortal. They can, and they will die if they cannot divide. Even if cells in your brain are indeed formed by neural stem cells, most of them in the hippocampus, this neurogenesis is not enough to compensate for the wear and tear of standard neurons. The brain of a normal, healthy 60-year-old is smaller than that of a 20-year-old, because a lot of neurons are dead. The theoretical maximum lifespan of a neuron is only about 120-something years. It doesn't matter if the rest of the body is still functional; when too many brain cells are dead, it's over.

Chinese researchers have implanted human (intelligence) genes into the brains of monkeys. Will this bring a mutation in these monkeys over generations?

We have to wait for the experiment to deliver its results. Otherwise, the idea does not seem far-fetched to me, the monkey being perhaps the animal closest to the human being.

What would happen if I passed a very thin object, like a needle, through my brain ???????

Without even taking into account the skull that would be in the way, if you could pass a needle from one side of your brain to the other without hitting any arteries, it would be a miracle. However, some patients are treated by having very fine electrodes implanted very deep in the brain, connected to an external stimulator. So it can be done. Sources:

What part of the human body cannot feel pain?

Which part of our body does not feel anything? The one or even if we slice it in 2 you don't feel anything...

The brain , because it has no nociceptors

This allows surgeons, for example, to question a fully awake patient to ensure that:

no cognitive function will be damaged during brain tumor removal,

the stimulation electrodes implanted in the brain of a patient suffering from Parkinson's disease are correctly positioned to significantly reduce his tremors.

You can also slice the brain in half. It 's called a callosotomy

, but you must not be mistaken with the cutting plan. P erpendicular to the corpus callosum, I do not guarantee the result :)

What do you think of transhumanism?

For having thought a little about the subject since cerebral transhumanism is the central theme of my SF novel In Real Life *, I am... torn. The benefits can be huge, but so can the downsides. In fact, for me, it's double or nothing.

Potential positive aspects :

The absorption of most of our multimedia equipment . No more need for camera and microphones when it is enough to have someone with eyes and ears to transmit images and sounds. (By the same token, you eliminate crime.) No need for sensors when you have a nose and skin. No more need for computers when your brain can communicate directly with a data server or perform complex operations aided by the implant.

Direct access to knowledge and faster learning . If your brain can download data, skills, do you still need schools, universities, training, upgrades? No. And that's a negative aspect too, because you can create a chasm between those who could have been implanted and the others, those who still have to work to learn.

Access to real virtual realities . Like the Oculus Rift, but in your head, with more sensations. If reality is only a set of sensations and perceptions, it can be simulated. And it can also be recorded. You can therefore, in theory, travel without moving, exploring a virtual reality created for you from the experience of an existing person or from a set of data. For example, in my book, I replaced "primitive" sleep with a sleep where dreams are virtual realities that we choose from a catalog, dreams where we can have the craziest experiences - make an appointment. meet his friends on an island paradise for a barbecue, go surfing in Hawaii or explore Ancient Greece.

Harmonization of minds . If you can link your brain to a machine, you can link your brain to… lots of other brains. You can share thoughts, emotions, sensations, in real time. No more misunderstandings or misunderstandings. No more lying or intimacy either. On a larger scale, you can harmonize the network so that good ideas automatically spread to all brains and increase productivity. You can also harmonize the work so that a village, a city, a company functions like a beehive.

Negatives:

Well what if you have one of these devices and your pretty democracy turns into dictatorship? Where does your freedom of thought go ? Where do your personality, your ideas, your sense of reality go? How far can this diet take control of your brain?

What if a hacker/enemy government hacks you? The Wannacry ransomware suddenly becomes very very very dangerous.

What happens if the company that distributes these devices, after implanting them in everyone at low cost and closing schools and universities, starts to monetize knowledge and skills like the paid applications of the 'Apple Store? Do you see how a single company could claim the monopoly of knowledge and its transmission?

If there are several companies that distribute these devices and they are incompatible, then we are no longer in iPhone vs Android or Mac vs PC. We literally create communities of people capable of understanding and communicating with each other at lightning speed, but… hermetic to others. Now imagine that the same Mac vs. Pc apply: the software available exclusively on Mac, it becomes a learning module available exclusively on the Apple implant. Besides that, loads of others are only available on Microsoft models. You end up with communities that can carry out certain tasks, certain professions, and others not. You find yourself having to choose an implant for your child – no more school remember? - and the choice of this implant already becomes a choice of profession and socio-professional category. For life !

And what if the technology changes? That teenagers, benefiting from new implants that are more advanced but incompatible with the old ones, find themselves cut off from the older generations?

Well I'll stop there for the demonstration, but we could go on for a long time - I'm very far from having covered here all the aspects that I exploited in my trilogy or that I plan to tackle in a potential prequel. Still, with the same device, we can switch to a scholarly, egalitarian and tolerant society, thanks to an implant that allows the circulation of knowledge and eliminates subjectivity by connecting individuals, or we can switch to a 1984 2.0 remake, where Big Brother can make you its puppets, its male slaves. Or even Matrix, where men are connected but kept in an illusion. Or an intermediate solution: humanity can find itself split into two camps: the unconnected, those who are too poor to acquire an implant and who see themselves condemned to carry out the dirty work, and the connected, those who have access to knowledge, to skills, and can thus ensure their hegemony. And within the connected, it is the war between the Apple camp and the PC camp. Do you see why I'm torn? Some positive aspects are downright dreamy, but some risks are monstrously scary.

No. 1000 years is 40 generations, not enough for significant genetic changes to take place.

If you came across a Neanderthal man resurrected after 30,000 years in the street, you might find him a little weird, but he would look like you enough for you not to doubt his humanity.

In 1000 years we may have implants to give us access to Windows 3021 by thought, or we may even download our brains into a computer when we die so that a digital clone will survive us.

But biology still has good sides that in 1000 years we will still look like Homo sapiens.

Between the ongoing experiments that manage to implant simple memories in the brains of study subjects on the one hand, and the countless studies and maps of the human brain on the other hand.

I wouldn't be surprised if one day they develop a real lie detector that will scan your brain to check if you are using your memory or rather your imagination.

And on that day, good luck leading the life of an outlaw.

But I think it will still be decades before that exists.

Your question can only be answered by a believer who knows what his God creates, desires and does.

The only thing I can tell you is that in August 2008, I suffered a cardiac arrest for five minutes. Fortunately, I was already in an ambulance and I survived. But I have no memory of those five minutes. No, no "light at the bottom of the tunnel," nothing.

I will therefore conclude that death is the end of consciousness. And if you're interested, I'm living just fine now with an implanted pacemaker and defibrillator.

What is the difference between cognitive psychology and neuropsychology?

Cognitive psychology aims to describe the functional architecture of the brain. This

means that for each information processing system implanted in the brain (language, memory, attention, etc.), cognitive psychology will aim to describe the location of this function within the brain.

As for neuropsychology , it will make a specific contribution since it will be based on the study of brain-damaged patients . We can take advantage of deficits resulting from brain damage to better understand the organization and functioning of normal mental processes.

There will be several in parallel:

5G for all

biometric payments

implants in the brain, allowing for example to restore the mobility of certain disabled patients

autonomous driving on the road

supercomputers or quantum computers

gene therapy

As a man, are you attracted to women who don't wax?

No, I find underarm hair pretty disgusting. I don't mind the jersey as long as it's reasonably trimmed.

I am fully aware that it is cultural. The current trend is that underarm hair is a masculine trait. When we have been immersed in this culture since childhood, it is difficult to go back to these associations, which are very deeply implanted in our brains.

I don't judge women who let it grow. It is their absolute right. But it's also my right not to find them feminine or attractive.
