In an interview with the MSNBC channel broadcast this Saturday, US President Joe Biden stated that his son Hunter “has done nothing wrong” and that he is “proud of him.” These remarks come amid news that federal prosecutors will soon decide whether to charge Hunter with crimes of tax evasion and lying on a form when purchasing a firearm.
Hunter Biden has been at the center of public scrutiny after a scandal erupted around his laptop, the contents of which came to light ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Emails from the laptop detail the president’s son’s involvement in numerous foreign companies, as well as million-dollar deals in China that depended on introducing partners to his father or an alleged scheme to arrange funding for a Pentagon contractor to study dangerous biological agents in Ukraine.
On another topic, a team of Chinese scientists has conducted a significant experiment in the field of brain science by achieving the connection between the brain and the computer through minimally invasive surgery on a monkey. Based on signals of brain electrical activity recorded by an interventional electroencephalograph, the animal was able to actively control a mechanical arm.
According to Ma Yongjie, it will take another five years or more for interventional BCI technology to work clinically. The manager of a Chinese BCI device company points out that the US has a clear advantage in invasive BCI technology, but China excels in non-invasive technology, being a pioneer in BCI decoding and applications. Also, the breakthrough into the interventionist BCI could be a great way to catch up with foreign competitors.
