Mono juega videojuegos

Elon Musk, el hombre más rico del mundo, reveló que Neuralink, una de sus empresa, conectó un dispositivo inalámbrico en el cráneo de un mono para que juegue videojuegos con su mente.

“Tenemos un mono con un implante inalámbrico en su cráneo con pequeños cables que puede jugar videojuegos con su mente””, compartió Musk, también fundador y propietario de Tesla y SpaceX, entre otros proyectos futuristas, en la red social ClubHouse.

El empresario aseguró que el animal está “feliz” y que no se puede ver dónde está el implante.

El objetivo, aseguró, es que los monos jueguen mentalmente al “Pong” como parte de sus investigaciones para desarrollar una interfaz cerebro-dispositivo sin cables.

“Tenemos las mejores instalaciones de monos en el mundo. Queremos que jueguen mentalmente entre ellos”, dijo Musk.

El experimento busca desarrollar tecnología para reparar lesiones cerebrales y espinales, explicó el empresario sudafricano.

“Hay versiones primitivas de este dispositivo con cables que salen de la cabeza, pero es como un Fitbit en el cráneo con pequeños cables que van al cerebro”, agregó.

Republicanos proponen su plan de estímulo al presidente Biden

Senadores republicanos presentan este lunes al presidente Joe Biden su plan de estímulo, una propuesta menos costosa a la que impulsa el mandatario demócrata de 1.9 billones de dólares para enfrentar la crisis de la pandemia del Covid-19.

Se trata de un encuentro de “buena voluntad” en el que intercambiarán ideas sobre el plan, según informó la Casa Blanca.

Biden quiere contar con el apoyo republicano para aprobar su propuesta, a pesar de que los demócratas tienen ahora los suficientes votos en ambas cámaras del Congreso para hacerlo.

“Los trabajadores estadounidenses necesitan ayuda y la necesitan ahora. Es por eso que pido al Congreso que apruebe de inmediato mi Plan de Rescate Estadounidense que brindará ayuda directa, extenderá el seguro de desempleo, ayudará a la gente a poner comida en la mesa y mantener un techo sobre sus cabezas, y más”, dijo Biden este lunes a través de la cuenta oficial del presidente en Twitter.

De acuerdo con medios de prensa, el plan de los senadores republicanos asciende a unos 600,000 millones de dólares.

La portavoz de la Casa Blanca Jen Psaki, dijo en rueda de prensa, que el monto final del plan estará cerca de los 1,9 billones de dólares anunciados por Biden.
