Neuralink Founder Elon Musk Says First Prototype To Connect Human Brains To Computers With Implantable Microchips Powered By AI Ready In 2020

Elon Musk founded Neuralink Corp. to create a direct connection between your brain and computers via human implantable microchips says he’s ready to start.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Elon Musk, the futurist billionaire behind SpaceX and Tesla, outlined his plans to connect humans’ brains directly to computers on Tuesday night, describing a campaign to create “symbiosis with artificial intelligence.” He said the first prototype could be implanted in a person by the end of next year.

In a massive display of irony, Elon Musk, the same man that has famously warned that AI is ‘summoning the demon‘ now wants to be the person who implants your brain with a microchip. Not only that, he even said to Joe Rogan in the podcast clip below, “if you can’t beat them, join them”. And that’s just how fast things change from one nanosecond to the next in the end times, if you snooze you lose. Or in this case, snooze and gain a microchip in your head.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJV)

Just as in when nearly all prophetic fulfillments take place, there is usually a long ramp up time to the event, and then when it happens it happens so fast the vast majority of people completely miss it. The gospel of Luke warned for 20 centuries that the last days would be as it was in the ‘days of Lot‘, and Christians for generations knew exactly what that meant and what to look for. Yet, with the rise and dominance of the LGBTQ+ P for Pedophile Movement, churches all over the world are becoming ‘welcoming and affirming‘. What happened?

“And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias the prophet unto our fathers, Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive: For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.” Acts 28:25-27 (KJV)

The same thing that is happening right now with the long-touted and warned against human implantable microchip, and it is happening before your very eyes just like the Bible said it would. Yesterday’s faith and last year’s Bible study won’t do you much good, these are the end times, and you need to reup each and every day. There is no Mark of the Beast without the Beast, and yes the Church is removed in the Rapture before that happens, but pay close attention to what Elon Musk is saying. We could see some really wacky times before we board Flight #777, so it’s best to resolve in your mind now what you will do when the time comes. I will not be receiving an implantable chip for any reason at any time, no matter how cool and exciting they make it. How about you?

Elon Musk wants to hook your brain directly up to computers

FROM MACH: Arriving at that goal “will take a long time,” Musk said in a presentation at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, noting that securing federal approval for implanted neural devices is difficult. But testing on animals is already underway, and “a monkey has been able to control the computer with his brain,” he said.

Elon Musk founded Neuralink Corp. in July 2016 to create “ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers.” The company said in 2017 that its initial goal was to devise brain interfaces to alleviate the symptoms of chronic medical conditions.

It’s widely presumed, however, that Musk is characteristically after something much larger. He has frequently warned that the rapid advance of artificial intelligence, or AI, threatens to leave humanity in the dust, calling it an existential risk.

Musk repeated Tuesday night that one of the goals of Neuralink was to treat brain disorders, saying, “We can solve that with a chip.” But he went on to say that it also sought to help you “preserve and enhance your own brain” and to “create a well-aligned future.”

As he has before, Musk warned that as it stands, humanity is at risk of being left behind by the rapid advancement of artificial intelligence, or AI — “even in a benign AI scenario — hopefully, it is a benign scenario.”

Addressing that, Musk said Tuesday, will require finding a way for the brain to “merge” with AI, most likely through tiny wireless chips implanted in the brain through a 2-millimeter incision to create what he called “some sort of symbiosis with artificial intelligence,” with a goal of no less than securing “humanity’s future as a civilization relative to AI.”

The biggest technical hurdle is bandwidth, Musk said, meaning the tools humans use to interface with computers, like current hardware systems and smartphones.

While Neuralink “aspirationally” hopes to implant the first chip in a human patient before the end of 2020, Musk acknowledged that the larger goal will take a long time. Still, the ultimate hope is for “some sort of symbiosis with artificial intelligence,” which he said would take root “at the civilizational scale.”

“With a high-bandwidth brain interface, I think we can have the option of merging with AI,” he said.

Asked how Neuralink could make such an advance system affordable and widely available, Musk said the infrastructure would be so simple that it wouldn’t need expensive neuroscientists to implant and maintain.

“I think it’s safe to say you could repay the loan with superhuman intelligence,” he said. “I think it’s a safe bet.” In November, Musk touted “an AI extension of yourself” in an interview with comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan, saying: “If you can’t beat it, join it. READ MORE

Electric vehicles, rockets… and now brain-computer interfaces. Elon Musk’s newest venture, Neuralink, aims to bridge the gap between humans and artificial intelligence by implanting tiny chips that can link up to the brain. At a press conference on July 16, Neuralink’s ambitious plans were detailed for the first time, showcasing a future (a very distant future!) technology that could help people deal with brain or spinal cord injuries or controlling 3D digital avatars.

Elon Musk, The Man Who Wants To Implant a Microchip Into Everyone’s Brain Just Bought Twitter, Should You Be Worried? Nah, It’ll Be Great!

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said in a statement included in the press release announcing the $44 billion deal. “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Twitter’s board has accepted an offer from billionaire Elon Musk to buy the social media company and take it private, the company announced Monday.

Elon Musk is becoming something of a modern-day folk hero, what between flying rockets into space better than NASA, and launching cyber satellites more effectively than the Pentagon, to now buying Twitter because he wants “free speech ” for the world, you might be tempted to think he’s the best thing since sliced bread. As the old infomercials from the 1970’s used to say, “but wait…there’s more!”

And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.” Luke 4:5-7 (KJB)

How much more? Just remember that Elon Musk is also the same guy who wants to put a microchip into everyone’s brain with his company Neuralink. Everything that Elon Musk is touching right now is turning to rock, solid gold, but ask yourself this question. Since Musk is, by his own admission, not a born again Christian, who might it be that is blessing him with this astonishing level of wealth, power and influence? My guess would be it’s the one to whom the kingdoms of this world have been given. Now get ready for your Neuralink microchip brain implant, don’t worry, you’ll love it. No, not me, you. I choose Jesus.

Twitter accepts Elon Musk’s buyout deal

FROM CNBC: “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said in a statement included in the press release announcing the $44 billion deal. “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”

The cash deal at $54.20 per share is valued at around $44 billion, according to the press release. Twitter will become a private company once the deal is complete.

The announcement ends a weeks-long saga Musk kicked off when he disclosed a large stake in the company. Soon after, the company said he would join the board, only for Musk to reverse course on that plan several days later. Then, he offered to buy the company at $54.20 per share, his “best and final.” That offer valued Twitter at about $43 billion.

Assuming the deal closes and Musk takes ownership of Twitter, the company will be controlled by the world’s richest person and someone who’s been a heavy critic of the platform while using it in legally contentious ways, mostly through sensitive posts about his car manufacturer, Tesla. Though Musk has indicated that his primary interest in Twitter has to do with what he views as the company’s censorship of free speech, Musk critics are justifiably concerned that the billionaire’s control over the platform will result in the silencing of their voices and others with whom he may disagree.

Twitter’s board sought to fend off a hostile takeover by adopting a so-called poison pill, or shareholder rights agreement, that would allow other shareholders to buy the stock at a discount should Musk or another person or group acquire more than 15% of outstanding common stock. The plan would dilute that person’s holdings in a strategy commonly employed to prevent unwanted acquisitions. READ MORE

The World’s Top Billionaires Are Racing To Be First To Market With Brain Computer Interface Microchips Bringing Us Closer To Mark Of The Beast

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) acquire, analyze, and translate brain signals into commands that are linked to the devices performing the desired actions. Implantable biometric devices are the hottest sector of the technology field today, as we are watching Silicon Valley working feverishly to turn us into cyborgs. There is no turning back at this point, and the only question is not if this will happen, but how soon it will happen. It’s happening.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

In a surprising move, Peter Thiel, co-founder of Palantir and a venture capitalist has recently invested $10 million in Blackrock Neurotech, a company that does research similar to that of Elon Musk’s Neuralink— mapping the brain.

What is the Mark of the Beast? Glad you asked, it’s a human-implantable device that allows the host to conduct financial transactions commonly known as ‘buying and selling’. Pretty simple concept to understand, yes? No knowledge of Greek or Hebrew needed, just a dime store King James Bible that bargain stores literally sell for one dollar. So is anyone surprised that that two of the world’s top billionaires who make their fortunes with money, Thiel of PayPal and Musk of Bitcoin, are now racing to bring to market the first human-implantable brain chip?

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)

Implantable biometric devices are the hottest sector of the technology field today, as we are watching Silicon Valley working feverishly to turn us into cyborgs. There is no turning back at this point, and the only question is not if this will happen, but how soon it will happen. It’s happening.

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) acquire, analyze, and translate brain signals into commands that are linked to the devices performing the desired actions.

FROM ANALYTICS INDIA: Peter Thiel who co-founded Paypal with Musk in 1998 is backing Blackrock Neurotech with an undisclosed stake in the company. The company, which is  headquartered in Utah, has been serving the neuroscience research community with hardware and software since 2008. It is working on  brain-computer interface (BCI) devices that could help improve people’s cognitive abilities.

Blackrock Neurotech CEO Marcus Gerhardt in his conversation with CBNC stated that Blackrock has been generating profits since 2015 despite the tech having a limited market. This was the first time the firm had taken any significant venture capital funding.

Brain Computer Interfaces or BCIs, which are only a few millimetres long, are designed to assist the disabled; to restore the functionality of people with neuromuscular disorders such as ALS , cerebral bias, stroke or spinal cord injury. When it comes to BCIs, Neuralink stands tall. The company has demonstrated its capabilities by making a monkey to play pong using a chip planted on its skull. Whereas, Blackrock Neurotech has claimed success by testing its device on 28 patients across Europe, China, and the U.S. Meanwhile, Neuralink is hoping to start with human trials later this year.

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) acquire, analyse, and translate brain signals into commands that are linked to the devices performing the desired actions. BCIs do not use normal neuromuscular exit pathways. The main objective of BCI is to help restore the functioning of people with a neuromuscular disorder. The miniature sensors are placed in areas where the activity needs to be monitored by the doctor. If a patient experiences difficult hand movements, the device would be implanted in the premotor cortex. Once in place, electrodes attached to the device record brain activity (i.e. what the patient is thinking), which are then sent to a computer.

Recently a team of researchers at Stanford University connected a brain-interface device to a paralysed man’s nervous system. The software quickly translated data from the BCI to convert people’s handwriting thoughts into text on a computer screen. The man was able to write twice as fast as he could using an earlier method developed by the scientists from Stanford. The study was conducted by Jaimie Henderson and Krishna Shenoy, who have worked together since 2005 on brain-computer interfaces.

According to Andrew Jackson, professor of neural interfaces at Newcastle University, Blackrock Neurotech still has a long way to go. In his conversation with CNBC , he stated that Neuralink’s device is far more capable than Blackrock Neurotech as it can record more brain cell activity as it has more channel’s (recording sites) than Blackrock’s BCIs. The device is able to record multiple points of the flexible electrodes that are sewn by the surgical robot into the brain as compared to Blackrock which only has a single recording site.

Another point of difference is Blackrock’s patients have wires coming out of their skin. Now both companies are working on wireless devices. But, Blackrock trumps Neuralink in one category.  The Thiel backed company has been researching long before Neuralink was conceived. However, the fate of both companies will be decided by their commercial viability and clinical efficiency. So far, the patients didn’t have to pay for the procedures for Blackrock’s BCIs as part of the clinical trial. It will be interesting to see how the company transforms the device to be commercially available by next year. READ MORE

CRISPR, AI & Brain-Machine Interface: The Future Is Faster Than You Think

Emerging technologies have unprecedented potential to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues. Among the most powerful — and controversial — is the gene-editing tech, CRISPR-Cas9, which will improve agricultural yields, cure genetic disorders, and eradicate infectious diseases like malaria. But CRISPR and other disruptive technologies, like brain-machine interfaces and artificial intelligence, also pose complex philosophical and ethical questions.

Neuralink Chip Implant Allows Monkey To Play Video Game ‘Pong’ Using Only Its Brain As Elon Musk Prepares To Chip Human Brains Next

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Neuralink, the brain-implant start up founded by SpaceX head honcho and self-appointed techno king Elon Musk, has unveiled a new video of a nine-year-old monkey named ‘Pager’ playing Pong…with its brain.

Big Tech titan Elon Musk seemingly has the ‘midas touch’ with just about every he puts his hands on succeeds to a very high degree. From launching rockets into space to the self-driving Tesla, Musk is firing on all eight cylinders, pun intended. Not only that, after a jaw-dropping Neuralink test on a monkey named Pager, he is now getting ready to launch human implantable microchips for your brain.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)

Watching the video of the monkey playing the video game using the controls is unsettling enough, but then about halfway through, Pager the monkey suddenly figures out that all he needs to keep playing the game is using his thoughts. If that doesn’t show you how deep we are into the end times right now, then nothing will.

Elon Musk’s Neuralink reveals monkey playing Pong with brain implant

FROM CNET: The three minute video shows Pager learning to control a computer with his brain activity. At first, the monkey uses a joystick to interact with the computer for a “tasty banana smoothie, delivered through a straw.” The narrator states Pager has two Neuralink devices implanted in his brain. The devices, which Musk calls a “Fitbit for your skull,” were revealed at a press briefing in August 2020.

As Pager plays through the games, the narrator explains the Neuralink devices in his brain are reading his brain activity and that activity is being decoded by a computer. When the team disconnect the joystick, Pager keeps playing the game — and the brain-implant allows him to play “MindPong,” as Neuralink has dubbed it. Musk claimed in a tweet Thursday that the first product from the startup would allow “someone with paralysis to use a smartphone with their mind faster than someone using thumbs.” That’s a future that still seems a long way off.

“MindPong is an initial demonstration of the potential capabilities of the N1 Link,” the company said in a press release. “However, it’s important to remember that it is a small slice of what our device is intended to achieve.”

Neuralink has been relatively radio-silent since it was first founded in 2016. In the past two years, the startup has produced two Musk-helmed press briefings, detailing its forward momentum. In 2019, the Neuralink device debuted and steady progress seemed to have been made in the following year, when the pig implants were revealed.

The briefings also functioned as recruitment drives, with Musk asking people to get in touch and join up. A similar call out is posted at the end of the Neuralink monkey video. But information is still scant: Musk and Neuralink have published one scientific paper, in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, back in October 2019.

Musk teased Neuralink had wired up a monkey’s brain to play video games during a Clubhouse meeting back in February. “We have a monkey with a wireless implant in their skull who can play video games using his mind,” he noted. We’ve now see that in action, but we haven’t got much in the way of scientific evidence here, just yet.

In the concurrent press release on Neuralink’s website, the company states “our first goal is to give people with paralysis their digital freedom back: to communicate more easily via text, to follow their curiosity on the web, to express their creativity through photography and art, and, yes, to play video games.”

It’s been a weird few days for Neuralink. Earlier this week Neuralink president and co-founder, Max Hodak, made an ambiguous tweet about Jurassic Park that many publications took to mean Neuralink was investing in dino DNA development. Monkeys playing Pong isn’t quite dino DNA but… maybe it’s even more impressive? Who am I to say? READ MORE
