Bible Verses of the Day

6 Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, 7 a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head as he reclined at table. 8 And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste? 9 For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor.” 10 But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me. 12 In pouring this ointment on my body, she has done it to prepare me for burial. 13 Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.” [Matthew 26:6-13, ESV]

In a livestream on X, patient Noland Arbaugh explained that he was playing a game of chess online using a device in his brain to move the cursor.

He appeared in the video beside Neuralink’s brain interface software lead Bliss Chapman, and answered questions about how the technology worked, saying that it required him to “imagine the cursor moving”.

The 29-year-old said he had become paralysed from the shoulders down after a diving accident. He said the Neuralink device was “intuitive” and his experience using it was “wild”.

This week, California tech giant Nvidia announced a new collaboration with Hippocratic AI: AI-generated nurses, for only $9 an hour.

AI nurses are one of the latest AI innovations to offer personalized and cheaper healthcare services. According to Gizmodo, over 40 healthcare companies are already testing the technology.

The move to using low-cost virtual nurses brings into question the safety of trusting a non-human medical professional, as well as what it means for US nurses, who've already been quitting their jobs en masse partly due to being underpaid.
