Scientists Reveal New Potential Therapeutic Targets for Mental and Neurological Disorders

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, mathematics, media & arts, neuroscience

A recent study from researchers at the University of California, Irvine found that the removal of cilia from the striatum region of the brain negatively impacted time perception and judgement, opening the possibility for new therapeutic targets for mental and neurological conditions such as schizophrenia, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases, autism spectrum disorder.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disorder that affects how a person communicates and interacts with others. It is characterized by difficulty with social communication and interaction, as well as repetitive behaviors and interests. ASD can range from mild to severe, and individuals with ASD may have a wide range of abilities and challenges. It is a spectrum disorder because the symptoms and characteristics of ASD can vary widely from person to person. Some people with ASD are highly skilled in certain areas, such as music or math, while others may have significant learning disabilities.

What Is Wright’s Law

Posted by in categories: business, internet, satellites

Here’s some interesting SpaceX News!

For the last few months, SpaceX has been having trouble launching Starlink satellites, once going almost two months between Starlink launches. The problem wasn’t that SpaceX was launching less often, but that SpaceX had a surge in business. The long-term solution was to go from 61 launches last year to about 100 launches this year. (SpaceX only did 31 launches in 2021, so they are growing rapidly!)

This month was much better for Starlink launches, with 3 this month. The key to squeezing in 3 launches was that SpaceX did 7 launches this month which is a 7 12 = 84 launch rate, definitely higher than last’s years 61 launch rate.

It was one of the teachers of the school’s engineering program who suggested that their classmates could help him by developing a robotic hand.

15-year-old Tennessee boy Sergio Peralta now has a robotic hand, thanks to his classmates. A group of high school students designed a robotic hand for their newcomer.

“In the first days of school, I honestly felt like hiding my hand,” he said to CBS News.

ChatGPT And Reimagining Human Intelligence

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

By now you have probably heard about ChatGPT (and used it!). Even to those familiar with AI tools, ChatGPT generated a wow moment. Perhaps it is the sheer breadth of possible applications, the accessibility, or the ease of use. In any event, people are scrambling to figure out what it means for them and their businesses. There appear to be three main reactions to date — ignore, ban (with or without detection), or embrace. While completely understandable as short-term reactions, the first two are not intermediate or long-term practical. The technology is too powerful, too easy to use, and too helpful to too many people.


What does ChatGPT mean for how we consider human intelligence? The key to benefiting from these technologies is to better understand what humans are capable of.

The Generative AI Revolution Is Creating The Next Phase Of Autonomous Enterprise

Posted by in categories: business, finance, robotics/AI

According to the Financial Times, investments in generative AI in 2022 exceeded $2 billion. OpenAI’s valuation for a potential sale of some shares was set at an impressive $29 billion by the Wall Street Journal. Clearly, this indicates the enormity of interest from investors and corporations in generative AI technology. As the world continues to embrace technology and automation, businesses are beginning to explore the infinite possibilities of Generative AI. This type of Artificial Intelligence is on the cusp of creating autonomous, self-sustaining digital-only enterprises that can interact with humans without the active need for human interaction.

Generative AI is quickly becoming more widely adopted as enterprises are beginning to utilize it for a variety of tasks, including marketing, customer service, sales, learning and client relationships. This type of AI can create marketing content, generate pitch documents and product ideas and craft sophisticated advertising campaigns – all custom driven to help improve conversion rates and drive more revenue.

Generative AI companies are beginning to see massive success in venture capital, with many raising large sums of money and achieving high valuations. As per TechCrunch, Jasper, a copywriter assistant, recently raised $125 million at a $1.5 billion valuation, while Hugging Face raised $100 million at a $2 billion valuation, and Stability AI raised $101 million at a $1 billion valuation. In addition, Inflection AI raised $225 million at a post-money valuation of $1 billion according to TechCrunch. These successes can be compared to OpenAI, who in 2019, received more than $1 billion from Microsoft in funding with a $25 billion valuation.

Impact Of AI On The Music Industry (Part 2 Of A Two Part Series)

Posted by in categories: law, media & arts, robotics/AI

My last article focused on the recent announcement of Google’s MusicLM, although not accessible to the public, due to copyright issues, it does give one new insights that AI is disrupting the value of human talent in the musical field.

Music has been core to humankind for centuries with the first piece of music, a Hurrian Hymn, discovered in the 1950s on a clay tablet inscribed in Cuneiform text. It’s the oldest surviving melody and is over 3,400 years old. Songs are human’s way of communicating stories and encompassing everything we know of as humans.


This article continues to explore the impact of AI on the music industry and looks at some of the pros and the cons, reinforcing the need for increased legal frameworks and copyright protections for musicians.

Why Meta’s Yann LeCun Is An AI GodFather And Why ChatGPT3 Is Not Revolutionary

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Last week, I attended a community event, that Collective Forecast organized where Yann LeCun was the guest speaker. The session was attended by leading experts in AI, ML, CEOs, journalists, and company representatives who simply wanted to hear what was on Yann’s mind. The session was jam packed with everyone engaged and cherishing each word.

Yann is is well known for his work on on convolutional neural networks (CNN), and is a founding father of convolutional nets. Yann received the 2018 Turing Award (often referred to as “Nobel Prize of Computing”), together with Yoshua Bengio and Geoffrey Hinton, for their work on deep learning.


This article summarizes a recent discussion with Yann LeCun discussing why ChatGPT3 is not revolutionary and why AI is not as Smart as a Cat.
