Neuralink pārliecinoši rāda priekšzīmi [1][2] tam, kā jābūvē smadzeņu-datoru interfeisus. Publikācija apraksta tikai agrīnu koncepta demonstratoru ar virkni skaidri iezīmētu tālāku uzlabojumu, bet jau tas vien ir daudz iespaidīgāks par visiem iepriekšējiem lielo projektu gala rezultātiem, kopā ņemtiem (pie tam ar tikai nepilnu 3 gadu ilgu R&D fāzi).

We have built arrays of small and flexible electrode “threads”, with as many as 3,072 electrodes per array distributed across 96 threads. We have also built a neurosurgical robot capable of inserting six threads (192 electrodes) per minute. Each thread can be individually inserted into the brain with micron precision for avoidance of surface vasculature and targeting specific brain regions. The electrode array is packaged into a small implantable device that contains custom chips for low-power on-board amplification and digitization.

Today I learned there is a word, κᾰκοθερής (kakotherḗs), literally meaning “bad at summer”. Unfitted to endure summer heat. We poor souls have a Greek term just for us, fancy that. Kudos to D for pointing out.

Using precisely specified symbols and geometric shapes as a tool for and the extension of the individual will to bind and command an autonomous semi-intelligent entity that, in other circumstances, would be fully capable of inflicting grievous injury and harm. All right, I’m convinced, this is actual ritual magic in the traditional sense of the word.

I should just use my Alcor membership and be done with it. Cryostasis sounds so good right now.

Vai kāds man varētu paskaidrot, kāds varētu būt iespējamais iemesls manas necilās personas bloķēšanai pēc šādas atbildes? Mani šādi starpgadījumi nekādā mērā nesatrauc, bet šoreiz, manuprāt, tēma ir tik ļoti neitrāla un atbilde – tik neagresīva, ka man pašam nesanāk uzmodelēt ticamu domu gājienu (atskaitot “bloķēju visus, kas uzdrošinās uzdot jautājumus maniem publiskajiem ierakstiem”).

In a parallel universe, Papers, Please is a game about a small-name scientist trying to publish. Most other things remain the same – the poverty, the long hours in a dreary room, the constant reports up the command chain, the persistent feeling of existential emptiness and dread.

I think we can all agree that, no matter our contributions to our respective fields, we will not beat 15 July 1992 when Dr. D’Eath and Dr. Payne published a paper in Phys. Rev., exploring the physics of black holes smashing into each other at relativistic speeds.
