Musk had a "brief affair" with Nicole Shanshan, the wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin, last year, WSJ reported.

In response, Musk responded to the question on Twitter, denying that he had a "romantic relationship" with Sergey Brin's wife:

"Sergey Brin and I are friends and we went to a party together last night. I've only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with a lot of people. There's no love story (between us)."

It is reported that Sergey Brin and Larry Page co-founded Google. In 2019, Brin announced that he was stepping down as president of Google, but he still retained a controlling stake.

During the 2008 financial crisis, Brin provided Tesla with $500,000 in funding, and in 2015, Google participated in a $1 billion investment in SpaceX.

Brin has allegedly asked his financial advisers to sell his personal investment in Musk's company following tensions between the two. Moreover, Brin filed for divorce earlier this year, citing "irreconcilable differences."

However, according to the first financial report, no public documents have been inquired to confirm that Brin has sold his holdings in related companies.

Wu Zunyou: Monkeypox epidemic will not cause large-scale epidemic in my country

Yesterday, Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, issued an article explaining the monkeypox epidemic.

He said: "Judging from the population and transmission methods of monkeypox in Europe and the United States, it is only a matter of time before monkeypox spreads to mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macau.

(However) due to the limitation of the mode of transmission, the speed of its spread and the range of people affected are far from that of the new crown epidemic. In other words, the monkeypox outbreak will not cause a massive epidemic in our country. "

In addition, on the 25th local time, the first confirmed case of monkeypox was found in Japan, and the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a global travel warning on the monkeypox epidemic. Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that there have been more than 2,800 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the United States, and the monkeypox virus has been detected in wastewater in many places in California.

Future machines can 'sniff' out explosives and your underlying disease

A recent report in "WSJ" pointed out that just as image technology can recognize faces and audio technology can extract text content, researchers are broadening our understanding and application of odor information.

The sense of smell is complex.

On the one hand, the smell itself is composed of many different chemicals, and on the other hand, the olfactory receptors of animals are also very diverse. In humans, we only have three color receptors, but hundreds of olfactory receptors.

Startup Koniku uses bioengineered living nerve cells directly as the basis for sensors to recognize subtle scent signatures to identify explosives. Koniku plans to use the sensor in airport scenarios in the future.

MIT's Dr. Mershin uses scent technology to identify prostate cancer, the scent recognition system is based on artificial intelligence technology. The Mershin team says the system is currently 90 percent accurate.

While none of these technologies are in widespread use, experts concerned with data privacy have warned that odor monitoring could jeopardize personal privacy.

For example, someone might apply the technology to a mobile phone that monitors the user's scent to identify health problems.

But it can "sniff" not only health information, but also other personal information of users, such as diet or other living habits, because many factors can affect people's body odor.

We are not ready for the application of this technology. It will raise deep ethical dilemmas.
