Elon Musk, the founder of Neuralink, mentioned that a person with their brain technology implanted can control a computer mouse simply by thinking. Musk shared in a conversation on social media that the patient appears to have fully recovered without any negative effects that they know of and is capable of moving the mouse around the screen using only their thoughts. Neuralink’s Journey to Help People Control Devices Neuralink is a startup owned by a billionaire. They claim to have created a brain implant to help people use their brain signals to control outside devices. The company wants to help…

Elon Musk’s company Neuralink recently placed its brain implant in a person for the first time. Musk shared on X (previously known as Twitter) that the patient is doing well. Neuralink is working on a brain implant to assist people with serious paralysis in controlling devices through their neural signals. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1752098683024220632/ The company started recruiting participants for its first human trial in the fall after getting approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in May, as mentioned in a blog post. Neuralink’s Telepathy On Monday, Musk mentioned on X that Neuralink’s initial product is named Telepathy. If the technology…

A new research report from the American College of Cardiology has pointed out a possible problem when you use erectile dysfunction drugs along with common chest pain medications. The study looked at a specific type of medication called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5i), which is what makes well-known erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis work. Although these drugs help many men dealing with ED, the research indicates a potential issue when PDE5i is taken with certain chest pain medications. Dr. Daniel Peter Andersson, who is an Associate Professor at Karolinska Institute and the main author of the study,…

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) is making a big difference in medicine. Now, AI is helping scientists find new antibiotics, something that hasn’t happened in 60 years. Scientists discovered, a new substance that can kill a type of bacteria that’s resistant to drugs. This bacteria causes the deaths of thousands of people worldwide every year. This discovery could be a crucial moment in the fight against antibiotic resistance. James Collins, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and one of the study’s authors, stated that they used AI to figure out which molecules would be good antibiotics.…

The study released on Tuesday suggests that the free version of ChatGPT might not give accurate or complete answers, or even no answer, to questions about medications. This could be risky for patients using OpenAI’s chatbot. Pharmacists from Long Island University asked 39 questions to the free ChatGPT in May. They found that only 10 of the responses were considered good based on their criteria. The chatbot’s replies to the other 29 drug-related questions either didn’t directly answer the question, were wrong, incomplete, or a combination of these issues, according to the study. Study Findings and Warnings for Users The…

A lot of people are interested in getting brain implants from Neuralink, as mentioned in a recent report by Bloomberg, who wrote a book about Elon Musk. Neuralink, a company founded by Elon Musk, hasn’t put its brain implant into a person yet. But they plan to do surgeries on 11 people next year and over 22,000 people by 2030, according to report. He said he visited the company’s buildings 10 times over three years. Neuralink’s Path to Human Brain Implant Trials Earlier this year, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave Neuralink approval to start testing its brain…

Artificial intelligence, which is a kind of computer technology, is being used a lot in medicine to help diagnose illnesses. A team of researchers from Austria and Australia, led by a skin doctor named Harald Kittler from Medical University of Vienna. Looked into how helpful AI is for diagnosing and treating skin problems with dark spots in real-life medical situations. AI in Skin Cancer Diagnosis In a study published, they tested two different computer programs on smartphones that use AI to see how well they can diagnose skin issues compared to human doctors. They found that the AI program is…

Many individuals are grappling with issues related to their mental health and overall well-being, encompassing aspects such as physical health, cognitive functioning, and emotional stability. Thankfully, World Mental Health Day, observed on October 10th, serves as an opportunity to raise awareness about mental health and dismantle the stigma often associated with mental health struggles. The objective behind this day is to raise awareness about mental health issues and destigmatize the topic to have an open discussion about mobilizing efforts in support of mental health. Here at Exhibit, we’re all about tech, and of course, technology does play a role in…

Genetic mutations entail alterations in our DNA sequence, occurring as cells replicate during the process of cell division. These mutations serve as the primary wellspring of human genetic diversity and bear significance in evolutionary and medical genetics. An alteration impacting our genes can potentially lead to a genetic disorder, although the presence of a mutation does not guarantee the development of such a disorder. Hence, DeepMind, the artificial intelligence division of Google, has introduced AlphaMissense, a machine learning model, with the purpose of discerning which DNA variations within our genomes are probable culprits in causing diseases. Additionally, DeepMind is unveiling…

According to the report, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, under the command of the US Department of Energy, has begun emitting X-rays using the recently developed Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL). The project, called LCLS-II, involved an investment of US$ 1.1 billion. Stanford University’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory has been at the forefront of creating and operating scientific instruments for more than sixty years. The original LCLS reached first light in April 2009, marking a milestone for the world’s first XFEL. Scientists, continue to use many different methods to study and gain a deeper understanding of…
