Neuralink, Elon Musk’s brain chip company, to start human clinical trials

Published

on

Elon Musk’s brain implant company Neuralink is now hiring a director of clinical trials, an indication that the company’s long-standing goal of implanting chips in human brains is drawing closer.

This new position would have as its mission the supervision of the long-promised human trials of its medical device startup, according to the list. Neuralink’s brain implant, which Musk has said already allows monkeys to play video games with just their thoughts, is intended to help treat a variety of neurological disorders, such as paralysis.

Brain Chip Clinical Trials Coming Soon

Last month, Musk told the Wall Street Journal that Neuralink hoped to implant his device in human brains sometime in 2022. However, he has made similar predictions in the past that proved overly optimistic, including in 2019, when he said during a presentation that the device would be in human skulls by the following year.

The first human test that medical device manufacturers must perform on the way to US Food and Drug Administration approval is known as feasibility testing. Next, after a submission, review, and approval process with the FDA based on proof of feasibility, is a pivotal device test.

As reported from Bloomberg, the job description for the position, based in the United States, promises that the applicant “will work closely with some of the most innovative doctors and engineers”, as well as with “The first participants of the Neuralink clinical trial”. It also indicates that the work will mean leading and building “the team responsible for enabling Neuralink clinical research activities”, as well as adhere to regulations.

Last year, another company working on brain-machine interfaces, Synchron, said the FDA had approved its planned feasibility study. Synchron is currently in the recruitment stage, a spokeswoman said. As for Neuralink, it’s unclear exactly how far they’ve come with this process. Representatives for Neuralink and the FDA did not respond to press requests for comment.

Rogozin Roskosmos wants to create CT and MRI equipment

Director General of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin said today that the enterprises of the state corporation plan to create equipment for computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

During the New Horizons marathon, Dmitry Rogozin made a short statement: “We would like to create MRI and CT equipment for our regions.”

Rogozin: Roskosmos wants to create CT and MRI equipment

He confirmed that as part of the diversification program, Roscosmos enterprises are creating medical equipment. Center them. M. V. Khrunicheva creates pressure chambers for newborns and for the restoration of limbs, the Research and Production Corporation “Systems of Precision Instrumentation” develops digital glasses – an emulator of full vision for people with one seeing eye.

The timing of the appearance of equipment for CT and MRI manufactured by Roscosmos has not yet been specified.

Samsung cheated the unique S95B QD OLED TV turned out to

Earlier this year, Samsung introduced the S95B QD-OLED TV, which stands out with its new panel and 144Hz support. And with the last point there is a nuance.

Samsung cheated: the unique S95B QD-OLED TV turned out to be better than the company describes it

The fact is that the frequency of 120 Hz is indicated on the Samsung website, and the company spoke about it during the announcement. However, the TV was found to be capable of running at 144Hz while maintaining 4K UHD resolution.

The author of the HDTVTest channel conducted a series of tests and determined that the TV can indeed operate at a higher frequency than stated. At the same time, it works in full 4K UHD without various tricks like reduced vertical resolution and does not miss a single frame. Is that in this mode the color depth is limited to 8 bits.

In order to get the TV to work in this mode, you will need a PC, since modern consoles only support 120 Hz. You also need a video card with HDMI 2.1 and an appropriate cable. The author tested the novelty with the GeForce RTX 3090. Everything worked fine, including G-Sync.

The Samsung S95B QD-OLED is therefore a unique TV not only because of its new panel, but also because of its support for 144Hz at 4K UHD resolution.

prototype Xiaomi 12 Ultra

The source published a list of parameters, indicating a 120x zoom, a focal length range of 12-120 mm (equivalent) and an aperture range of F / 1.95-4.1. All this exactly matches the camera specifications of the current Xiaomi flagship.

That is, the periscope telephoto camera will still be able to provide 10x optical and 120x digital zoom and will be characterized by an aperture of F / 4.1, the main camera will have an aperture of F / 1.95, and the ultra wide-angle camera will offer a focal length of 12 mm equivalent.

But this does not mean at all that the Xiaomi 12 Ultra camera will not change. The company can change all three sensors while maintaining the above parameters. At a minimum, the device is credited with a new Sony IMX 989 main optical sensor with an optical format of about 1 inch.
