Ellen, Elon Musk, Scifi discussed on The Leo LaPorte Show


Know everything with a chip in and all that computerese stuff. If you want to talk with me, 88 88 asked. Leo is my phone number 8888275536 told free from anywhere in the U. S. Or Canada outside that area, he still will have Tio use some sort of Technology witchcraft. Probably the best thing to do would be just you Skype out or something like that happening any VoIP solution. It will call a phone number a landline, and if you call that number, 88 88 asked Leo. It's toll free. Still free so Shouldn't cost you anything. Even from even if you want call from Russia. 88 88 asked LEAH website Tech I labs dot com. That's where we put everything I say. As if it mattered. But I've hired describe James drew foe to write this all down, so He's my Boswell so he will write it all down on DH put it there. And the only reason it's there is so that if you hear something, and you know, you say, I should know what it is that link again. You don't have to remember to write it down. It's all there. Just remember this tech guy labs. Got calm. Elon Musk. If you start a sentence that way, Elon Musk, you know it's going to be interesting. It might be infuriating. It might be bizarre, but you know it's going to be. It's not going to be boring. Elon Musk this week. Demonstrated something he's been is invested $100 million in And he's been working on for since 2016 called Nora Nora Link Neural Link a link Ellen reads a lot of SciFi fun, You know, founder of Tesla's the Electric Car Company in Space six. The company that's putting us 72,000 satellites above US for Internet. Course, was the Company that launched the the Dragon vehicle that brought the crew to the international space station and back the first American launch in many, many years, So you know He's kind of He's kind of like that, you know? I don't know how he's kind of like Iron Man. I guess it's kind of like the evil genius the brilliant genius of our time. It's good. We live in interesting times where their people like him and and Jeff Bezos and You know who just took change the world. Mark Zuckerberg? Maybe maybe for the good maybe for the worst, but just to change the world anyway. Ellen read a lot of SciFi as a kid. He also I think he said it on im going to take him at his word believes that we're not living in Actual reality. We're living in a simulation. This is a complicated one, but basically the notion that we're basically in a video game. Unclear whether the video game it was designed by s and as players and then played by us or for being played by other people. If it really is us or it's aliens or what? I don't know, but he believes you're in a simulation. I think that gives him some Magical powers because, hey, could he has the freedom to go? I'll do anything. I'll try anything. What doesn't matter? It's a simulation. So he's right. A lot of science fiction, as have I and one of the common tropes and SciFi. I'm thinking Neal Stephenson might have really kind of crystallized in snow Crash The meadow first, the idea that you could Flug thing into your head. Ah Neuromancer, another another great novel, the cyberpunk. Novel Neuromancer talks about this a lot of science fiction talks about this yet he could have a man machine interface you get somehow attach a computer to your head and either live in a simulation or used the computer to supplement your brain. So, Neil on having you know, thinking Well, it's my job to bring the future here. Single handedly Ilan created this company. Neural neural link didn't create it, but he funded it and some scientists really scientists are working on it. To create a brain machine interfaces. In fact, this week, they showed their machine that they would use to stitch a cell. If I cellophane like You have to open the skull. Okay? I'm sorry. It took a little piece of the skull. You could put it back. You're not gonna take it out and leave a hole in your head. You know, you take a little piece of the skull. Put this cellophane in it extrude super thin fibres into various brain centres. And then they put the skull. You know, they put the skull back on and it appears to your cellphone. Over Bluetooth. Anyway, they did it to a pig. Poor pig. Actually, they did, too. Well, they had three pigs. You know they have a control pig. They have the the operable pig. So they put this in the pig's head, and they showed that they could read the pig's brain waves. It's a little step. It's a baby step. It's not going. You know, we're not quite to the world where you jacket and be in another universe or anything like that quite yet, But you know you gotta make this is technology. You make little steps. You start with the pig the end with the man, that kind of thing. And they showed this conceptual machine. That you could go in to an office without no no anesthesia, and they'd just put your head in this machine and puts this thing in your head. And Ah, you two could be attached to the machine. I don't know if I want to do this. I don't know. Making progress, Ellen says the machine is very much simplified compared with what they showed you last year. Last good. Okay. I'm just I'm mentioning it because you know there you have it. That's the story. Morning Glory. It could be that you know that. I don't think it's going to be 10 years 20 years, maybe 100 years from now, this will be common place you go in. You know, when you hit your 21st birthday, your mom will give you Hey, honey. Ellen says it could should just cost a few $1000 your mama. Stay here, Honey. It's time for your surgery and you go in and you get sit down the machine. And then get back to your iPhone to your brain. Okay? Okay. I mean, You know, Wikipedia we love Wikipedia. Wikipedia is brilliant. We love it. What a great example of what the best that the Internet Khun do. It's an encyclopedia. Sometimes there's no not accurate stuff in their most the time it is surprisingly turns out when you get it. People crowded people working on something that kind of tends to be good somehow. Well, sometimes then there's the Scottish Wikipedia. A young American, a teenager, apparently since 2013 living in North Carolina. Has his hand handle is amaryllis gardener because he likes flowers has written 23,000 articles on the Scots Wikipedia 200,000 and its problem is in that Scottish doesn't speak the language. And apparently what he stunned. This is written article and and by the way, he's not doing this maliciously. Maybe he just didn't understand. My He's written. These articles in English and then goes to a appears to go to a Scottish English dictionary in does the translation sort of And so, really, he's written everything as if it was maybe perhaps, Robin Williams..

Coming up next
