The 1st War on Artificial Intelligence By Elon Musk – Answer is Neuralink to Advance Human Intelligence!

Monday, March 19th, 2018

If you are into Technology, Science, Information, and any category which combines both, then you are into the know when it comes to comic book movies which have encompassed the entire world with their adventure, and surreal graphics during action scenes to captivate audiences worldwide. One of the most noted and memorable is that of Tony Starks.  In the comic book and in the Iron Man movies is known as a visionary billionaire that is ahead of his time in terms of technological advancement and his aptitude for success. Now, if you are reading this and wondering who Tony Starks could compare to, it won’t be long before the name Elon Musk surfaces. Elon Musk has been shattering the limits when it comes to innovation and it is hard to mention innovative future technology without mention his name. From the Tesla car line which is now one of the world’s most prestigious and efficient electric cars on the market, to the Hyper-Loop which is changing the way how we travel at the speed of sound while cutting down on fossil fuels, then to Space-X which is taking civilians to outer-space. Elon Musk is not only wealthy, but ahead of his time when it comes to technological advancements.

If you are still reading, then be prepared to get even more astonished as we depict the latest innovation including greatest similarity between Elon Musk and Tony Starks, is that Elon Musk has managed to get $27 million dollars towards his latest innovation which is his Neuralink. Yes, the Neuralink is Elon Musk’s latest innovation to blend humans with machines in the same similarity that Tony Starks did with his Iron Man suite, except this is not fiction, but is reality.  Elon Musk seeks to counter the fast-growing effects of Artificial Intelligence. It is his belief that humanity will need a counter-balance in the event that AI becomes aware, which is literally only moments or a few key strokes away. With technology that learns, it is hard to stop it from learning or depicting its own version of what is right or wrong.  The limitations that we place on technology, or specifically with AI, is only shackles which can be broken at any given point in time. The problem that Elon Musk has brought to light is that should humanity face a self-aware Artificial Intelligence, there is no way of telling if it will be for mankind or against mankind.

Elon Musk’s counterbalance measure is to meld machines with humans and giving humans an upgrade rather than upgrading learning machines. Prior to Elon Musk, Neuralink was a medical research company founded in 2016 which was poorly funded until Elon Musk has joined their efforts. The idea behind Neuralink is high-bandwidth digital interface which interlaces the brain and allows it to transmit data at the speed of thought. Coincidentally the technology for Neuralink is dubbed a “Neural lace”.  The concept behind the neural lace is unlocking the communicative capacity of the brain through thought rather than through antiquated means such as speech or typed texts. The reality is that the human brain communicates thoughts more rapidly and frequently than the body can translate into communicable or understandable translations. According to Musk, the brain compresses our complex thoughts into minimal voice and text output in order to establish communication between fellow humans. Musk further elaborated by stating “If you have two brain interfaces, you could actually do an uncompressed direct conceptual communication with another person”.

The neural lace essentially would establishes a direct link between another person’s thoughts or a interconnected network of people’s thoughts that would limitlessly speed up communication, imagination, innovation, and most importantly intelligence beyond any possible concept. The human brain is untapped resource of intelligence that surpasses even the most advanced computational technology which exists. At current state, the most innovative minds still have not tapped into full 100% usage of the intellect housed in the human brain. Being able to tap into that pool of intelligence of the greatest minds coupled with the undiscovered greatest minds of today and tomorrow gives humanity an incomprehensible advantage to advance. Early innovations of this technology has been noted with people that have disabilities. Examples of this technology which is already in place is the cochlear implant which captures audio and translates it into electrical impulses that the brain registers and translates. EEG readers for stroke victims have been used to control  robotic arms through their thoughts. The technology has already been tested and is in use, however, the neural lace is geared to take the technology to whole other level.

An example of this can be viewed as “The Matrix” which captured the thoughts of human beings and put everyone from a thought level on the same plane. It allowed for the sharing of thoughts and technology on a wider and advanced plane. For that reason there was a constant battle between the advancement of their artificial intelligence and human beings. Even though that aspect of the future is fantasy, the realization of artificial intelligence and its limitless possibilities is what has geared this full-scale preventive measure by Elon Musk. With any technology or advancements, the idea is to have protocols and defensive mechanisms in place that check the technology and still allow human beings to maintain control over society and their own well-being. The power of choice is what is being fought for and the maintenance of the freedoms the human race currently uses in our everyday world.

The concept that “proof is in the pudding” is what the team at Neuralink are gearing up to produce. Their initial phase is to restore feeling in spinal cord injury victims and brain functionality of people who’s lives have been altered due to their disability.  This path that Neuralink is on brings another company called Braintree, who’s founder is Bryan Johnson. He has invested $100 million of his personal money into Braintree to use “brain chips” in order to cure people with Alzheimer’s and epilepsy. Braintree is also on the path towards augmented cognition through the advancement of human beings. The major obstacle that Neuralink will have to conquer is the ability to directly interface with the brain in order to accomplish the type of link or testing necessary to get the results required. This type of surgery is categorized as “high-risk”.  Currently only in extreme circumstances medically qualified as “severe cases” would allow this type of surgery to take place. Due to this inhibitor, the possibilities of the technology is limited. Human rights activists, animal rights activists, and placing human life in general at risk is what inhibits the acceleration of this unique technology.

Technology is advancing at a rapid pace and the direction also the limitation of its expansion has been unhinged. Since the unmeasurable potential of the internet and its information sharing capabilities, technology has sped on the highway of advancement up to products such as Nano technology, Internet of Things (IoT), the Cloud, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning. Combining all these technologies or even the thought of all these technologies combining is astounding to the imagination much less to the comprehension. Companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Amazon, Google, ABC, and others have deeply invested in technological advancements including created their own versions of new technology which have yet to be mentioned or placed on the market. IT GURUS OF ATLANTA is a certified Microsoft partner which will update on this innovative technology and its advancement.

Transforming Transportation – Cars Now Fly!

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

Just when everyone is starting to get used to seeing drivers in cars with no hands on the steering wheel or even sightseeing while the car is driving through “Self-Driving” technology, here comes a huge game changer. We all knew it wouldn’t be long before the self-driving and drone craze that’s currently happening decided to blend. These are two technologies which involve AI (artificial intelligence) with the concept of getting processes done faster and more effectively while maintaining safety.  Drone are steadily mastering the skies as most entertainment industries require a drone to take aerial shots, while individuals keep drones to see what is like from so many feet above the ground. Self-driving cars use safety protocols which if the person were driving would have to adhere to, while allowing the driver to let go of the wheel and change focus other than the road without compromising safety. Now how do these two technologies manage to bind together? Well there is a company that IT GURUS OF ATLANTA would like to introduce you to, and they are called “Lilium”.

Now many may have never heard about Lilium, but as of September 5th, 2017, they received investments from a Chinese tech giant called Tencent (TCEHY).  Tencent was a major contributor of a $90 million-dollar fundraiser to fund Lilium’s top project. At this point many are asking, well what is Lilium’s big project and what does it have to with drones or self-driving cars? Well it has everything to do with both technologies. Lilium is testing their version of the “electric flying car”.  Yes, that’s right, the flying electric car is now a reality. Not using gas, or any fossil fuels to affect the environment, but pure electricity, this jet is now testing its way to the mainstream public.

Lilium succeeded in its first prototype testing which was a 2-seater version of the jet. The test was done in April of 2017 and marked as their first successful flight.  Lilium is a German based firm that was originally founded by students from the Technical University of Munich.  These four students founded the company in 2015 and it literally taking flight. Since the injection of funds from Tencent, the company has been on a hiring frenzy taking on executives from top firms. These executives have come from large companies such as Tesla, Rolls Royce, and Airbus.

The magic behind the prototype is 36 propeller engines that use a vertical lift and land technique to maneuver from ground to air or air to ground.  Already capable of flight, which allows it to move 10 times faster than a car, the vision is for the jet to travel at speeds of 186 mph (300 km).  Now that this new company is making waves, here is where the soon to be tech giant is headed. Lilium’s vision is to change the existing prototype into a 5-seater model that will take passengers between nearby destinations such as Manhattan to JFK. The company wants passengers to catch a flight from these jets at a pod (created around the city) just as a person would catch an Uber ride.

Lilium’s jet is capable of hovering, taking, and landing vertically. This type of craft is called a VTOL. VTOLs have existed for years and are mostly used by the military including in helicopters. These crafts also use an extensive amount of fossil fuels. The major difference between a military VTOL and Lilium’s is that it has “zero emissions”, designed for civilian transportation, and when completed, can carry up to 5 people at once to their destination.

Travel by air is the next innovative means of traveling. As we move towards more automation and exploring areas that have previously not been explored, Lilium’s flying electric car is only a glimpse of what is to come. By now there are other companies which are watching closely to see how Lilium performs and if their prototype will go mainstream. One of those companies watching Lilium is IT GURUS OF ATLANTA. We are always at the cusp of technology and bringing our followers the insight on new innovations. Lilium is a company which is here to stay and changing the canvas of transportation.
