Integrated AI – Neuralink concept demo video – Brain-machine interface/BMI design, Ray Kurzweil, AI
A few weeks ago, Dr. Ray Kurzfeld addressed a private audience at Singularity University. He gave an in-pron to update about all things large language models, including Google Palm, but he also gave an update about brain machine interfaces like Neuralink. He’s actually began to merge with that. He wants us to be as nurses. Computers were actually put them really inside our minds, will be able to connect to the cloud. I mean, consider yourself on. It wouldn’t be very smart if it didn’t connect to the cloud. Most of its intelligence is constantly getting from the cloud. Then we’ll do the same thing with our brains. We’ll be able to think that much more deeply by basically amplifying our ability to do intelligent type processing directly with the cloud. And so our thinking then will be a hybrid of our natural thinking and the thinking in the cloud. But the cloud will amplify. There are already several different companies that are looking at brain machine interfaces. These are electronic connections between our brain and artificial intelligence. So it’s amplifying our intelligence. Today I wanted to look at the Neuralink concept. Neuralink is quite a few years old now. And the video I’m going to show is from 2019. Back then, three years ago, Elon hired a design studio called Card 79. They’re very famous for coming up with futuristic thinking and forecasts. They have offices in Vancouver and San Francisco. They designed a brain machine interface concept for Neuralink that focused on a balance between comfort, discreteness and ease of use. Now to help with this spec, they looked at different air shapes, finding a design for the pill that would be a universal fit. They explored completely hidden brain machine interfaces, as well as very small indicators that someone was actually wearing a brain machine interface, like these different examples of over the ear designs. The final design shown here fits behind the ear and acts as an interface between your brain and the cloud. The design studio also provided some examples of use. They said, first, it can allow you to prompt your internal AI with questions or data queries. And as a result, the system would make you feel like you have superhuman intelligence. Because of the speed that brain computer interfaces enable, it would look like you didn’t use a computer to search for a fact. But just knew what 2324 multiplied by 8 is, what is the capital of Uruguay, etc. Also, BCI would make your everyday life and navigation easier as a lot of services like maps, Yelp, recommendations and weather could be accessed without looking at your phone or computer. Card 79 also developed a private concept directly for Neuralink. They didn’t release the video very loudly. I think it’s only got a few hundred views, but I thought I’d go deep inside their concept and show what they actually developed by way of how Neuralink, how brain machine interfaces, and this is a copy of it here, would actually work in day-to-day life. The video is called A Day in the Mind and follows a man through a regular day as he interacts with his personal AI named Eva via his brain machine interface. Morning, Eva. Show all personal notifications and today’s type stories. This part of the video is very important. The man has complete control over his BMI. In fact, there’s an encrypted connection between his brain interface and the outside world that he turns on and off using his cell phone or device. In this instance, we’ll find different ways of doing that. The operating system head OS is showing an encrypted connection between AI and brain. Good morning, Vance. It is 823. Monday, June 11, 2046. Now, there’s no way that this technology would take that long to enter our lives. In an interview with the ABC last month, I noted that I’m already seeing the beginnings of artificial general intelligence right now in 2022. A few weeks ago, Elon Musk also commented that Neuralink will even be able to perform advanced processing in the brain, including being able to cancel out re-in-the-years, like Tinnitus, before the year 2027. You have 13 new thought messages. I’ve also put together your curated news for the day. Hey, Eva, how did I sleep last night? Looks like you got six hours and 40 minutes of sleep. That’s 14% last than last week’s average. Studies show that having a cooler temperature could help give you better sleep. Would you like me to adjust your bedroom temperature this evening? Yeah, let’s try that. Setting bedroom temperature to 70 degrees Fahrenheit for this evening. Breaking news from ESPN. Giant’s shortstop, Chris Poppick, has been traded to the Yankees for Outfielder, Fulee Bay, Nunez. You have an incoming message from Brian. Janus wants to chat with you. Laila sent you an invitation for an event happening next week. You’ve got silence all notifications except phone calls and messages until 11.30. Okay, I’ll take care of that. Do not disturb mode will be mandatory. It’ll be so important. And we’ll find new ways of engaging this. Besides the phone, there might be some thought or some click that we can put in place to make sure that notifications are off. Precits. Sixty sync. Up a region 25. Eyes preset. Twenty-three. 30 blonde eyebrows. Precits. Thirty blonde bass. Template air. Precits. Twenty percent. Increase grow. Hair line flat. Coin ear template. Increase 20 percent. Concave two degrees. Base mouth. Found rectangle. Can you press it number two. Jolline beard template. Was too mouthful body. Vance. Ready for export. Looks good, Eva. Send this to the team for review. Sharing with team now. Thank you, Eva. This part’s a little clumsy. Perhaps jobs won’t even exist as we know them. But you get the idea. Remember that BMI’s probably won’t be a voice in your head. This is not auditory, but instead it’ll be an immediate thought, a realization. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Take one small zucchini and slice into one half inch pieces. Yo, man. What’s going on? Oh, dude, nothing much. It’s just been working a ton on the sink. Take one small squash. Almost done. I’m about to be work right now. What do you have to? What are you doing? Nice man. I am at home cooking some raditouille. Okay. Fancy malrad, so I like that. Dude, I actually is all coming into town this weekend. What are you doing? Oh, nice. Uh, I don’t know. Let me check. You have a dinner date with Rihanna on Sunday. But free all day Saturday. Saturday nights free. Okay, Saturday night. You know, we’re going in the bitter end. You down? The bitter end. Dude, you’re buying. You always get with that. I’ll pick your prompt five then. Sounds good, man. All right, living. This might be the most dated part of the video from 2019. Uh, it even uses an older video screen to do FaceTime-esque video calls. Preparing dinner by hand is also a little bit outdated. It neglects the automation that’s already jumping into our lives and making our lives easier through things like robots or cyber devices. All his days, no matter what the odds, he’ll never run club like the man in the red sweater, and beaten him into a more fundamental and privileged circumstances without changes as approached in. He understood that you can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after with a club. You would say that last line under inspirational quotes. Saving to your inspirational quotes. Sorry, we won’t be writing books like that either. In a 2020 essay titled We Are Entering the Singularity, Curtswell said, there are lots of books I’d like to read and websites I’d like to go to, and I find my bandwidth limiting. We’ll be able to enhance our cognitive patent recognition capabilities greatly. Think faster and download knowledge. Good morning, Vance. Good morning, Eva. Hey, Eva, we’ve got a big day ahead. What’s the most inspiring quote that I read last week? Based on your serotonin levels, the most impactful quote was, you can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club. It’s an exciting concept and it really gives some practical insights and ideas on how we might actually work with a brain machine interface and how it might impact some very small parts of our lives. Obviously, imagination is going to be a whole lot bigger and it’s going to impact in much different ways in the next few years. As I spoke about an earlier video about BMI’s, Neuralink is currently an invasive BMI. It’s the world’s first in-brain wearable device, but there are several new alternatives now, including completely wireless solutions that use red light and near-infrared light to interface with the brain directly. I’m on the edge of my seat, ready for the next development in brain machine interfaces. This one looked at Neuralink as a concept and how it might impact our lives. In very small ways, I’m sure we’ll see this broaden and broaden and we’ll actually need to come up with entirely new ways of being thanks to amplifying our intelligence through computing.
