Eerie AI can now READ people’s minds by translating brain activity

SCIENTISTS have developed a new artificial intelligence (AI) model that has the eerie ability to read people’s minds.

It might sound alarming, but the US researchers also uncovered a way to stop your mind from being read against your will.

Researchers called the new AI model a “real leap forward” in helping those who are mentally conscious but unable to physically speak.

It’s a major advancement in the technology that may one day help those unable to talk after a stroke.

The team trained an AI system called a semantic decoder to translate a person’s brain activity into text.

Participants listened to a story, or imagined telling a story, when the AI decoder turned brain activity scans from an fMRI scanner into words to read aloud.
