  • Neuralink has successfully implanted its Telepathy device in its first human patient, allowing control of computers with the mind. Musk claimed Neuralink restored sight in monkeys using its brain chip technology.

  • He described the Blindsight implant's initial resolution as modest, similar to "early Nintendo graphics," but highlighted the possibility of exceeding normal human eyesight in the future.

🔎 Extra Insights 

Emad Mostaque has resigned as the founder and CEO of AI company Stability AI to pursue decentralized AI. Mostaque stepped down from his leadership roles and the company's board, stating his belief that AI should remain open and decentralized rather than centralized with a few major players like OpenAI and Anthropic.

Nvidia and Hippocratic AI are developing generative AI "agents" that can outperform human nurses on video calls for less per hour. The firms announced their partnership to create "empathetic healthcare agents" using Nvidia's technology and Hippocratic's vast healthcare language model.

GAIMIN, the leader in decentralized data processing power, and io.net, one of the world's largest Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks (DePIN) for AI compute, announced a partnership to process cloud gaming data. Both firms have GPU-based DePIN designs and are some of the leaders in decentralized AI. Maybe Eman Mostaque is right, decentralized AI is the future.
