What is a Brain Computer Interface (BCI)? How It Will Be New Help Disabled?

The world has witnessed the successful implantation of the Brain computer interface (BCI) in the human brain by Neuralink. Recently revealed by the founder of Neuralink Elon Musk on x.com. He posted from his official account about the confirmation of the first successful installation of the BCI device inside the human brain. The subject is in healing and the device is showing initial activities.

Scientists from Neuralink Corp. succeeded in doing so on 29/01/24 after several trials on animal subjects like monkeys and Pigs.

BCI if worked will provide a direct connection of the brain with external devices such as computers. The Device will work as a bridge between the brain and gadgets. He will not need the use his hand to operate but just a thought.

What is Brain Computer Interface (BCI)?

Brain Computer Interface (BCI) sometimes called Brain Computer Maschin (BCM) is a chip that contains several hundred electrodes, and complex circuits and is fitted with software that will help connect with the outside device.

The chip aka BCI device is made up of biocompatible material. So that it won’t hurt the brain tissue in the long run. As it has to stay there for an indefinite period.

 It will help the sick and paralyzed people to operate all the gadgets such as mobile phones and computers from a distance. 

 If this works properly it will be a miracle for disabled and paralyzed people.

Types of Brain Computer Interface (BCI)

There are primarily two types of BCI devices,

1.Invasive BCI.

This type of device is surgically implanted inside the human brain either by a Robot or by a surgeon.

2.Non Invasive BCI.

In this type, the Device is installed externally to the scalp and no surgical procedure will be required. 

It can also have subtypes based on the type of electrodes, material used, type of device, and software used.

What Parts are there in BCI?

The BCI device from all other companies will have more or less the same components and parts. While Brain Computer Interface (BCI) device from Neuralink Corp have 

1. Threads or N1 Implant or Bunch of wire – Threads contain 64 nanowires. One end is connected to the chip while the other end is to 1024 electrodes. Electrodes are directly inserted into neurons. Electrodes will read the brain activity. Thread is ultra-thin and highly flexible.

2. The Chip – The device is fitted with an electronic chip. Chip receives the neuronal signals, processes them, and transmits them to software present in end gadgets such as computers. The application later decodes it and converts it into commands.  

3. The Battery – The device is fitted with a small battery to provide power which is seated above the chip.  The battery can be charged wirelessly from an outside charger.

4. Protective Covering – The assembly is enclosed by a protective covering. The covering is biocompatible i.e. its existence will not irritate or affect the neighboring tissue. Also, this material is tough enough to withstand all the chemicals present inside the body. Which helps it to stay in good condition and not dissolve or erode due to chemicals in the surroundings.

How will it function?

A person has to think about that specific command in his mind. That specific neuronal signal will be picked up by a Specially designed electrode. Neuronal signals will get transferred to electronic chips through the thread. The chip will convert the signal and transmit it wirelessly to software. The software application will read the signal, decode it, and turn it into the command for respective gadgets to operate as imagined such as mobile phones or computers.

Who will benefit from this device?

people who are paralyzed, disabled, or those who lack limbs due to disease or accident or have neurological issues and can’t use limbs. Because they can’t function like normal humans and need special assistance.

Elon Musk believes that with BCI devices these people will be able to type faster than trained typists. They will be able to operate the electronic gadgets remotely and become productive.

Dr. J. Vidal and associates first introduced the term and concept of Brain Computer Interface (BCI) in the 70s decade. The motto behind this was to develop the alternate brain signals output pathway for disabled and paralyzed people over the traditional output pathway of the peripheral nervous system. This research opened the door to all new science branches.

Neuralink Corp is not the only company involved in the research and development of Brain Computer Interface (BCI). There are several other companies such as  BlackRock Neurotec, Neurable, Emotive Systes Inc., Syncrone, Kernel, BitBrain Technology, Precision, NextMind Technology, Paradromics Inc. Forest Neurotec, Inbrain and there are more on the list.

All these companies are working on the same concept. The only difference is some companies are working on implantable electrodes and some are EEG based and electrodes external to the skull.

All You Need To Know About First Implantation Of Chip Into Human Brain By Neuralink Scientists.

Elon Musk claimed the successful implantation of a chip into the human brain for the first time in the history of mankind. Scientists from the “Neuralink” company achieved this milestone. 

 “ Neuralink” founder Elon Musk posted from his official account on x.com to make it public.  

After several trials on different animals attempt is made to implant it inside the human brain. This chip has been given the name “Telepathy”  device. SpaceX founder Musk claimed that with this chip humans will be able to operate all the digital gadgets from a distance without touching and just by thinking.

For example, if one wants to play a song on his phone just think about it or give commands in your mind and your phone will start playing the exact song just like telepathy.

Neuralink Corp” is a neurotechnology company founded by Elon Musk and seven scientists and engineers in 2016 that deals in neuroscience. The company is based in Fremont, California, United States. Since its inception, scientists have been working toward developing the brain chip which is called “Brain and Computer Interface (BCI)”. 

Elon Musk further added, “The chip was implanted on 29th Jan 2024, the person is doing good and recovering. Promising Neuron spikes are being detected in the subject. Initial clients will be those who don’t have limbs.” He gave the example of the great scientist Stephan Hawking typing faster than a typist.

If this works it will be a miracle for people without limbs or those who are paralyzed or disabled. They will be able to operate multiple devices like computers and mobile phones and can be productive.

Brain Computer Interface (BCI) chips or Telepathy devices will be implanted inside the human brain with the help of robots. The electrodes get pierced inside brain tissue and will work as a connecting link between the brain and the chip.  

The electrodes will capture the commands from the neuron that the subject has given in his mind and it will get read and processed by BCI DEVICE. Which eventually gets transferred to the concerned gadgets the person wants to operate and ta da! The gadget will follow the exact command to show the desired result.

Musk is famous for his out-of-the-box thinking and this invention is one of such inventions. He envisioned this through “Neuralink”. Worked on it with his fellow scientists and engineers and it looks like a eureka moment has come for the Neuralink team.

Before human trials several thousand trials were made on different types of animals, especially primates as primates are closest genetically to humans.

Neuralink and Elon Musk were severely criticized by people and animal rights associations for alleged complications and deaths of subject animals. Multiple articles are being published on reputed news portals like Fortune, Reuters, and Wired about the criticism of animal harm. 

Federal investigation was conducted but they found nothing wrong with the company.

The criticism was also raised related to corporate culture inside Neuralink Corp. Later Elon Musk advised employees of Neuralink to text him directly if they have any issues in the corporate management. 

Neuralink is not the only company that Musk has built. There are multi-billion dollar companies such as SpaceX, Tesla, Solar City, and Boring Company Musk founded and run successfully. Recently his acquisition of Twitter made big headlines as there was much criticism and ups and downs going on in the company like changing its name to X.COM and adding paid account verification of laid off employees.

Wall Street Giant Charlie Munger An Invisible Hero Of Berkshire Hathway.

An ace investor and vice chairman of Berkshire Hathway Charlie Munger recently died peacefully. He was 90 years old. He experienced a long and fulfilling career as well as life.

Charles Thomas Munger was an American Businessman, ace investor, and philanthropist.  who created the profound portfolio that made him a Billionaire. He ruled Wall Street for decades. As per Forbes at the time of death, Munger’s net worth was around $2.2 Billion.

Charlie Munger was a second in command of one of the biggest companies Berkshire Hathaway after Warren Buffet. Charlie in one of his interviews stated that” Berkshire Hathway was not in good condition before his arrival into management”. He then took command of management and silently reformed the whole company by staying behind the curtains. 

He never tried to take any limelight thanks to his humbleness and introverted behavior.

Though Charlie always remained overshadowed by the influence of Mr Buffet, he gave a new approach and new strategies for the company. Such as Charlie was the one who suggested Buffet to buy Good Businesses at a fair price rather than buy Bad businesses at a lower price. 

 Warren Buffett always openly praised Charlie and his work. He once said in an interview,” He (Charlie) was the architect of the company and I was just a general contractor”. 

    It is said that Warren Buffet met Charlie Munger at the Dinner Party in 1959 in the club. They become friends instantly. Later Buffet convinced Charlie to Join the firm in 1970. Their friendship and partnership lasted till the demise of Munger. It was a 50 year long partnership. Both of them worked like two wheels of the Chariot Named Berkshire Hathaway.

 Though Charlie was known for his association with Buffet and being Vice-chair of Berkshire Hathaway. He has a long and successful career in different jobs and businesses other than Berkshire. 

He was born in Omaha, Nebraska, United States on the 1st of January 1924. An interesting fact about him is at an early age he worked in the grocery store of Warren Buffet’s grandfather.

As a teenager, he worked in his grandfather’s Law Firm Buffet and Co. He dropped out of High school in 1943 to serve in the United States Army as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. He served in World War 2.

Later took admission in the Harvard Law School to graduate as a lawyer in 1948. His father and grandfather were also lawyers. His grandfather was a U.S. District Judge.

He later moved to California to continue his endeavor. Munger worked briefly in the law firm before forming his own law firm named Munger, Tolles, and Olsen LLP. After a couple of years, he gave up law practice to concentrate on his investment journey.

He formed his own investment firm and ran it successfully before working for Buffet. Munger was famous for his humor and witty responses.

Recently Charlie made a headline when he openly criticized the Cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, and Discount Brokerage app Robinhood. He denied the long-term existence of Cryptocurrencies and labeled them as “Immoral”. Also, he called Bitcoin “Noxious Poison”. Munger criticized the Robinhood app and said trading on it is like gambling.

Both Buffet-Charlie duo made Berkshire Hathaway a multi-billion dollar conglomerate involved in multiple businesses such as investment, Finance and services, Aviation, Insurance and reinsurance, Utilities, Energy, Manufacturing, Services, Retail, Media, and Real estate. 

Charlie Munger’s name will always remain star studded on the boulevards of Wall Street.

It all started when Pop singer Joe Jonas DM to the “Game Of Thrones” star Sophie Turner in 2016 later they started dating each other. Though it wasn’t an instant match initially later they got along well when she found out that Joe was not as bad as she thought as per what she admitted in one TV show.

After dating each other for years the couple got married twice once with close friends and family in California followed by a star-studded and fairy tale ceremony in France in 2019.

As the news of their divorce broke out recently all the followers were shocked as no one expected this to happen. They were always getting along well in public gatherings and on social media posts. No media ever reported any dispute of rough phage going on in their relationship. Both of them adopted the dog together and posted it on social media. They also inked a tattoo together named “To infinity” on Joe Jonas’ hand while “And Beyond” on Sophie’s hand.

Joe was found to be sporting the wedding ring all the way along even in the live show. Actress Sophie Turner was found attending the recent live show of Jonas Brothers at Yankee Stadium.

Sophie Turner updated a post on Instagram to declare the separation. She added, after four wonderful years of marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end their marriage. Everyone may be speculative about why but it was truly a mutual and united decision. She also asks everyone to respect their decision and privacy.

Further court proceedings will be carried out in Florida’s Miami-Dade Court as stated by Billboard.

Both followers and paparazzi are surprised as well as shocked about knowing about this high-profile divorce as news breaks out of the blue no one ever expected this.

Jonas brother’s band is a leading Pop-Rock band formed in 2005 and given many hit songs including “Sucker” which featured all three J- sisters including Sophie Turner, Nick Jonas’ wife famous Bollywood actress turned singer turned Hollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, and Kevin Jonas’ wife and actress Danielle Jonas released in 2019.

After the divorce will finalize kids will probably stay with Joe Jonas. Both Joe and Sophie will find their separate ways.

Eureka! Moment For Indian Aerospace Agency ISRO As Chandrayan-3 Successfully Lands On South Pole Of Moon.

In a historic moment, the Indian Space Agency ISRO’s CHANDRAYAN-3 made a soft landing on the south pole of the moon on 23rd August. With this achievement, India became the fourth country in the world whose spacecraft landed on the surface of the Moon and the first country to do a soft landing on the Lunar South Pole.

Before India only Russia in 1959(Luna-2), the United States in 1969(Appolo-11) which put Neil Armstrong on the moon, and China in 2013 (Change’e-4) was able to land their spacecraft on the moon and now India in 2023 became the fourth country to do so. Indian space agency ISRO ( Indian Space Research Organisation) is getting applause from all over the world including the American space agency NASA for this achievement.

On 23 August 2023 At 12.32UTC (i.e. 6.03 PM Indian standard time), 40 days after it took off from ISRO’s Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Shreeharikota, Andhra Pradesh, India on 14 July 023 at 09.05.17 UTC ( i.e. 2.35 PM Indian standard time) the soft landing took place uneventfully.

The VIKRAM (named after the founder of the Indian Space Program Vikram Sarabhai) Lander separated from the Chandrayan -3 spacecraft in lunar orbit and finally landed softly on the south pole of the moon. Soft landing on the South Pole is one of the important achievements in the history of aerospace exploration as no one has succeeded yet in achieving this. Before scientists used to think that it was next to impossible to land on the South Pole as it had several hurdles to do so such as rocky and uneven terrain, lack of proper visibility, inability to maintain communication in the last stage of landing with Lander, and so on.

Vikram Lander ways around 1700kg (or 3747.86 lb) and is 2-meter-tall while PPRAGYAN Rover is a lunar rover that is present inside the Lander which eventually comes out and helps in doing further research ways 26 Kg (or 60 lb).

All the systems will operate on solar-powered panels and will be active for 14 Earth days (or one Lunar day) under normal circumstances.

Both Lander and Rover are fitted with proper instruments to carry out multiple tests to find out the source of water on the south pole, the quantity and variety of different elements on the moon’s surface, the possibility of future lunar human colonization, Surface temperature, Gas and plasma environment on the moon. The Propulsion Module will keep orbiting around the moon 100km above the moon’s surface and help as a relay satellite for VIKRAM Lander to transmit the collected data to Earth. The propulsion Module will also help in research by observing the Earth from the moon’s orbit.

The South Pole is thought to be the huge storage of iced water on the moon. When discovered it can be used as the source of water for our astronauts and a fuel source for spacecraft.

Chandrayan-3 is the third Lunar Mission of India from the Chandrayan (means Moon Vehicle) Program, it was follow on mission to Chandrayan-2. The first two attempts Chandrayan-1 (2008) and Chandrayan-2 (2019) failed eventually. Chandrayan-1 was a Lunar Impact Prob and Pilot Project but Chandrayan-2 was a fully flagged Lunar Mission that was almost successful but failed in the last stage due to the crash of Its Lander while soft landing. But these two previous missions helped in the success of Chandrayan-3.

India’s Chandrayan-3 was not the only moon mission that was carried out this year. After 47 years Russia Sent its Spacecraft LUNA-25 a few days after India’s launch but it crashed prematurely before making a soft landing on the Lunar surface. A privately owned Japanese aerospace startup company Ispace Inc. also made a failed attempt to land on the moon. It failed due to they lost contact with their lander named Hakuto-R Mission or M1.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi conveyed his best wishes to ISRO chief S. Somnath and all the scientists and engineers involved in the Chandrayan-3 Mission for a successful landing.

ISRO’s next space project ADITYA L-1 for the solar mission was successfully launched on 02 September 2023. It will not land on the sun rather it is meant to observe the external corona of the sun’s surface from a distance.

Oppenheimer Vs Barbie, Who Will Win The Race?

Two blockbuster movies released side by side in the mid of last month on 19 July has divided the world into two group Between those who like Oppenheimer vs Barbie. Both movies have become the talk of the town over online media and offline groups.

Worldwide both movies have grossed hundreds of millions of dollars and have cut to cut race. Both Oppenheimer and Barbie are successful to hook the audience and bringing back the pre-Covid Glory. 

Until the last report, Barbie has grossed more than $1.18 billion worldwide while Oppenheimer is no less in this competition and grossed more than $650 million Worldwide as per DIgitalSpy. This made Greta Gerwig the first woman director to gross billion dollars and Oppenheimer to make among the top 10 R-rated movies.

Both movies got a variable response in different parts of the world such as in the United States, Canada, Australia, and South Korea viewers preferred to watch Barbie. In Europe, India, and China Oppenheimer is clearly the most like a movie. In China, the response to the Barbie movie was dull in the beginning but a few days after its release it saw a huge turnover.

During the Covid-19 Pandemic Cinema industry including both Hollywood and TV saw a down period of almost 2-3 years. Now, After the blockbuster collection of the movie, it looks like Cinema’s good old days are on the doorstep.

Greta Gerwig’s Barbie is Rom-Com starring Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken. People from all age groups especially younger people. But the most amazing thing is the first time ever in the history of cinema audiences used a dress code such as wearing pink clothes to watch a movie.

Oppenheimer Christopher Nolan directed film is a biography of American Physicist and Atomic Scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer Who was one of the lead scientists in the Manhattan Project and eventually leads to the formation of the Atom Bomb character played by Cillian Murphy.

Films are mostly liked by elderly audiences and those who like critically acclaimed movies or movies based on science, documentaries, and biographies.

Supporters from both movies were found debating on social media and online groups about which movie is best and which movie will do better in the coming days.

So, It looks like the race between Oppenheimer and Barbie will continue to the stage of the Oscar Award. It will be interesting to see which movie will win more Oscars.

It is clear from the box office earning until today Barbie is winning the race in until now But Oppenheimer is n less, it almost earned half of Barbie’s total earnings and the game is still on.

Craziness of this level was last experienced during the release of “Avengers: End Game” in 2019. Endgame was the biggest blockbuster hit and then Covid-19 struck and the world halted for some time. The entertainment industry suffered a huge loss. But we are hopeful this glory to Hollywood will continue.  

How Mark Zuckerberg’s Most Ambitious Venture Threads Lose Half of Its Active Users Even After Bumper Launch?

Instagram’s Threads application launched earlier last month. Which set the record of gaining 100 million followers in just a span of five days beating ChatGPT’s record. But it looks like all is not well with Instagram Threads at it Lose half of its active users in just a month.

As per the news published in Business Insider Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg told his office staff that almost half of the users that signed in for the Threads platform stopped coming back to the platform.

After the launch of Threads, it created a sensation among Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter users and become the first application to acquire a whopping 100 million users in just 5 days surpassing the record of ChatGPT.

Threads are text-based microblogging social platforms. Some users think that Threads is just a replacement for Twitter and is a competitor to it, even Elon Musk in his tweet state that Meta’s Threads platform is nothing but a copy of tweeter.

There are several reasons that help to gain a huge number of users to threads such as Mark and Instagram’s reputation, the Unavailability of text-based feature in Instagram, easy sign-up from an Instagram account in a few clicks, current ruckus going on in Twitter lately, Easy to use interface of Threads.

But the issue is why in the world do users stop coming back to the Threads platform? Threads team must evaluate the reasons for this downfall to stay in competition.

Because Threads garnered a huge response initially, the expectation was high from Threads to become a big bang hit but it looks like users are not that much satisfied with Meta’s Threads Platform.

Lately, Twitter imposes various conditions on its user such as access to limited posts, paid verification, and various changes that happened after its acquisitions. Also, users are not very happy about Twitter showing too many sponsored ads in between posts. Collectively all of these issues

As per the news published in Business Insider, Instagram’s chef Adam Mosseri explained that It is obvious to experience some drop in users initially after the launch of a new application, but such a huge drop was not expected. Threads is new and its time is yet to come. Also, it is lacking many features such as Trending topics, Hashtags, Photo and Video sharing features, and many more like its competitor.

He further added that” We are working on adding more features to this platform to make it more user friendly and also working on other ways to hook the users by sending them frequent notifications so that they will keep returning to the platform.”
