Decoding the business of brain–computer interfaces

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business, computing, neuroscience

Here’s a nice article discussing the progress of the brain-computer interface industry, some existing startups in the space, and where the industry may go in the future.


Fifty years after the term brain–computer interface was coined, the neurotechnology is being pursued by an array of start-up companies using a variety of different technologies. But the path to clinical and commercial success remains uncertain.

3 Companies Already Working on the Next Phase of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Posted by in categories: business, quantum physics, robotics/AI, supercomputing

These businesses are building tech that could exceed the abilities of today’s AI.

The field of artificial intelligence is still in its early years, yet several businesses are already working on technology that can become the foundation for AI’s future. These companies are developing quantum computing systems capable of processing mountains of data in seconds, which would take decades for a conventional computer.

Quantum machines can execute multiple computations simultaneously, accelerating processing time, while typical computers must process data in a linear fashion. This means quantum systems can evolve AI beyond the abilities of the most powerful supercomputers, enabling AI to drive cars and help find cures to diseases.

OpenAI will use Reddit posts to train ChatGPT under new deal

Posted by in categories: business, internet, law, policy, robotics/AI

Earlier this month, Reddit published a Public Content Policy stating: Unfortunately, we see more and more commercial entities using unauthorized access or misusing authorized access to collect public data in bulk, including Reddit public content. Worse, these entities perceive they have no limitation on their usage of that data, and they do so with no regard for user rights or privacy, ignoring reasonable legal, safety, and user removal requests.

In its blog post on Thursday, Reddit said that deals like OpenAI’s are part of an open Internet. It added that part of being open means Reddit content needs to be accessible to those fostering human learning and researching ways to build community, belonging, and empowerment online.

Reddit has been vocal about its interest in pursuing data licensing deals as a core part of its business. Its building of AI partnerships sparks discourse around the use of user-generated content to fuel AI models without users being compensated and some potentially not considering that their social media posts would be used this way. OpenAI and Stack Overflow faced pushback earlier this month when integrating Stack Overflow content with ChatGPT. Some of Stack Overflow’s user community responded by sabotaging their own posts.

TMSC Announces Low-Power N4e Node, Says It’s Boosting Specialty Nodes by 50%

Posted by in categories: business, energy

It’s unclear what customers or applications might be earmarked for this node, but it’s possible it could be dedicated to IoT and other consumer devices that need to sip power. Typically, these applications use legacy nodes as it would be too expensive to use advanced processes for inexpensive devices, but TSMC is planning for the future since this effort won’t be realized until 2029 or so.

TSMC’s Dr. Kevin Zhang, senior vice president of business development and overseas Operations, says the company has already started building Greenfield, but he didn’t indicate where it’s located. He says the rapid deployment of the Greenfield fab is the first time the company has essentially skipped what we assume is a lengthy review process and put shovels in dirt already.

According to Zhang, TSMC’s move is part of its larger effort to build some resiliency into its global supply chain. That resiliency will be achieved both by building fabs outside of Taiwan and increasing capacity for nodes it thinks will be in demand in the future. Anandtech notes the company’s most advanced low-power node is currently N6e, which is a 6nm/7nm node that uses between 0.4V and 0.9V. For N4e, the company is reportedly looking to drop that all the way down to 0.4V, but it didn’t offer any additional details about its performance or attributes at the symposium.

Revolutionizing Renewable Energy: Scientists Develop New Low-Cost Battery With Over 8000 Uses

Posted by in categories: business, solar power, sustainability

Researchers at Linköping University in Sweden have developed a battery constructed from zinc and lignin that can be recharged over 8,000 times. This innovation aims to offer an affordable and eco-friendly battery alternative, especially for regions with limited electricity access. The findings are detailed in the journal Energy & Environmental Materials.

“Solar panels have become relatively inexpensive, and many people in low-income countries have adopted them. However, near the equator, the sun sets at around 6 PM, leaving households and businesses without electricity. The hope is that this battery technology, even with lower performance than the expensive Li-ion batteries, will eventually offer a solution for these situations,” says Reverant Crispin, professor of organic electronics at Linköping University.
