Musk says he has uploaded his brain to the cloud

In response to questions from Dogecoin founder Billy Marcus on Twitter on July 19, Musk said he had uploaded his brain to the cloud and had talked to his virtual version.

Musk founded Neuralink, a neurotechnology company, in 2016, which is working on developing brain-computer interfaces.

After the human body is implanted with a brain-computer chip, it can control body movements through thoughts, which will help the paralyzed and disabled people to restore their body functions.

At the same time, Neuralink also claims that its device has functions such as relieving depression, treating obsessive-compulsive disorder and treating traumatic brain injury.

The project has been tested and publicly demonstrated in monkeys and pigs in 2021, with human trials planned for 2022.

But according to inputmag , as of January this year, Neuralink's implantable brain-computer interface human experiment has not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.

In addition, Paul Merolla, a founding member of Neuralink, has recently left. At present, the founding team of 8 people who helped build Neuralink six years ago is only 1 person other than Musk. (Bloomberg & WSJ & inputmag & Sina Technology)

Yuzuru Hanyu officially announces retirement

On July 19, Japanese figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu held a press conference in Tokyo, officially announcing his farewell to competitive figure skating events, and will focus on the stage of professional performance skating in the future.

Yuzuru Hanyu said that what prompted his decision was an ankle injury before the free skating competition at the Beijing Winter Olympics:

When I got home from the Beijing Winter Olympics, I couldn't skate because of my ankle pain. At that time I thought about all the aspects, all the scenarios, and then I felt that I didn't need to go back to this (competition) stage again.

During his competitive career, Yuzuru Hanyu has won almost every honor that figure skating can win. In addition to 2 Olympic gold medals, he also won 2 World Championships, 4 Grand Prix Championships, and 6 Japanese National Championships.

However, Yuzuru Hanyu said that he will continue to challenge for four and a half weeks as a professional figure skater. At the same time, people familiar with the matter revealed that Yuzuru Hanyu will also form a new ice performance team. (Olympics)

ByteDance confirms self-developed chips

On July 19, ByteDance responded to the news of its self-developed chips on the Internet, saying that ByteDance is indeed exploring chip designs that can be used by itself in the professional field.

A ByteDance spokesperson said that it started to develop its own chips because it has not found a chip supplier that can meet ByteDance’s requirements. ByteDance will customize chips for business areas such as video platforms, information and entertainment applications, and has stressed that it will not sell its chips to other companies.

The move marks ByteDance joining a string of Chinese internet giants developing semiconductors.

" Lei Technology " also wrote an article that enterprises independently design the CPU architecture and only need to pay the cost of chip design and foundry cost, which can not only improve the work efficiency of server chips, but also save some costs.

At the same time, “Considering that ByteDance will have to compete with giants like Meta in the metaverse field in the future, more efficient self-developed chips will become one of ByteDance’s killers, which can be said to be imperative.” (Phoenix Network Technology & Lei Technology)

iQIYI and Douyin reach a partnership

On July 19, iQIYI and Douyin Group announced that they have reached a cooperation and will explore the secondary creation and promotion of long video content.

According to the cooperation, iQIYI will license its long video content to Douyin for short video creation such as commentary, mixed cutting, and stripping. At the same time, Douyin will also enable users to click on Douyin to jump to iQiyi to watch the feature film.

A person familiar with the matter revealed that Douyin initially chose Youku to cooperate, but the cooperation failed in the end. (Securities Times & 36kr)

Mars Responds to Skittles Alleged DNA Alterations

According to a report by the Russian Satellite News Agency on the 18th, an American consumer recently sued Mars, saying that the skittles it produced contained too much titanium dioxide.

Titanium dioxide, an additive used in pigments, binders and plastics, can cause damage to the brain, liver and kidneys, and may even cause changes in the body's DNA.

"Our use of titanium dioxide complies with U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations," a Mars spokesman said in a statement to NBC.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration stipulates that when titanium dioxide is used as an additive, the ingredient cannot exceed 1% by weight of the food. The European food safety regulator has determined that titanium dioxide is not safe and will plan to ban the use of titanium dioxide from next month.

According to CCTV Finance, Mars promised as early as 2016 that it would gradually abandon the use of titanium dioxide in food in the next few years. (Daily Economic News)

Little genius tablet was interviewed for pornographic violence

In response to the recent issue that some apps of the Little Talent T1 children's tablet contain pornographic, bloody, violent and other content, the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Consumers Association jointly interviewed Guangdong Little Talent Technology Co., Ltd. on July 18.

According to China Consumer News, the problems involved in the little genius children's tablet include:

· The app store includes a variety of bad apps, and "parental remote control" is a dummy;

· The game contains bloody, violent and criminal content, and there is no Chinese language, duration and login requirements;

· Several downloadable manga apps for over 12 years old contain sexual violence.

In this regard, Xiaocai has announced rectification measures, which will permanently remove apps with bad content, strengthen the review mechanism, and set up reporting and complaint channels. (IT House)

Welcome to Bio 2.0, biotechnology can also be "software"

Pharmaceutical research and development can be "open source" and drugs can be "customized". These are the changes brought about by the transition from "Biotech" to "Techbio" (also known as "Bio 2.0").

The media that pays attention to European venture capital, Sifted, recently pointed out that more and more European VCs have begun to invest in Bio 2.0 companies. The field has raised $18 billion so far in 2020, about as much as in the previous six years combined.

In the eyes of many investors, the difference between Bio 2.0 and previous biotech companies is that Bio 2.0 is more about building platforms or "infrastructure" for research, rather than finding a specific drug.

The change is that biology is no longer just trial and error, we can now use biology as a technology.

Behind this are advances in machine learning, automation and engineering.

NFX provides a more specific explanation: DNA sequencing and synthesis technologies allow biology to be "digitized", so we can use machine learning, artificial intelligence, etc. to analyze digitized biological information.

In addition, in the laboratory, researchers' manual pipetting has also become large-scale automation, helping to shorten the research innovation cycle.

In techbio, startups can apply engineering to basic science to advance research faster.

This is also why (startup) teams can start with an idea, because they no longer have to spend a decade to discover and perfect CRISPR-Cas9 (gene editing technology).
