Brain-computer interface company Neuralink will start human trials within 6 months after demonstrating monkeys typing with their minds

Yesterday, Musk's brain-computer interface company Neuralink demonstrated a monkey typing on a virtual keyboard controlled by its brain at an event.

According to reports, Neuralink's N1 chip embedded in the monkey's skull can read the monkey's brain activity. By highlighting the letter keys on the virtual keyboard with a yellow highlight and guiding the monkey to move the cursor, Neuralink successfully enabled the monkey to achieve "ideal typing".

At the same time, Musk also announced that Neuralink's human trials are expected to begin within six months. In fact, start-ups such as Synchron have been able to implant small devices into patients' brains. However, Neuralink's plan is more radical, requiring patients to remove a large piece of skull before implanting the device, so it has been stuck in the animal experiment stage before.

In addition to the brain-computer interface, Musk also revealed that Neuralink is developing a spinal cord implant that can help paralyzed patients regain their mobility, as well as an eye implant to help restore vision.

Cook met with Musk at Apple headquarters: Apple never considered removing Twitter

Yesterday, Musk said in a series of tweets that he had met with Apple CEO Tim Cook to dispel "the misunderstanding that Twitter may be removed from the App Store."

Musk said that Cook told him in the meeting that "Apple has never considered doing this."

According to The Information, Musk’s new Twitter Blue was originally scheduled to be launched today, but perhaps because Musk was dissatisfied with Apple’s 30% tax on the App Store, the new Twitter Blue certification service was delayed.

At the same time, Zuckerberg has also bombarded Apple on this issue recently, arguing that the "Apple tax" deprives consumers of choice:

"It's problematic for a company to be able to control the app experience on a device. The vast majority of the profits in the mobile ecosystem go to Apple."

Zuckerberg believes that Apple's content moderation rules for apps are a "conflict of interest" because they often point at competitors.

 Will the data that humans "feed" to AI run out?

When training language models, AI researchers often use text from sources such as Wikipedia and news media to train AI, and the same data is only used once.

And a recent study pointed out that the text that can be used to train AI may be exhausted as early as 2026, because there is not enough high-quality data that can be used to train text data.

High-quality data tends to be created by professional writers, while low-quality data usually comes from comments on social media such as Twitter.

After that, if you want AI to use more data, you will inevitably have to relax the "high quality" restriction, but this will lead to a decrease in the quality of AI:

"We've seen how small models trained on high-quality data can outperform large models trained on low-quality data."

However, there are also AI researchers who are beginning to develop data sources other than text—online video.

For example, after watching 2,000 hours of "Minecraft" players' game screen recordings, Open AI can use this as a blueprint to continue to analyze a large number of unlabeled videos on the Internet, generate action tags, and then perform on a larger data set. train.

Based on these first-person video data, in theory, AI can help people browse websites, book flights or shop for daily necessities online in the future.

"With more data and a bigger model, I hope it makes it feel like you're watching a human being play a game, rather than a baby AI trying to mimic a human," said a researcher at OpenAI.
