Living in the future has tradeoffs. This will be “interesting”:
In an unprecedented scientific achievement, experts have developed a system that is capable of reading human thoughts and converting them into text.
The core of this technology lies in its ability to record and decode brain activity through an electroencephalogram (EEG) cap. Participants in the study silently read texts while the cap captured their brain’s electrical activity.
This EEG data is then processed by an AI model named DeWave, a creation of the UTS team. DeWave distinguishes itself by translating EEG signals into coherent words and sentences, learning from extensive EEG datasets.
The current translation accuracy is around 40 percent on the BLEU-1 scale, with aspirations to reach the efficacy of traditional language translation or speech recognition systems, which hover around 90 percent.
The implications in multiple dimensions are staggering.
If someone were to read my thoughts they may not like what they read.
