Scientists Develop AI Model that Can Decode Human Thoughts into Text
Get ready to have your mind blown, because scientists from the University of Texas at Austin have made a major breakthrough in the world of artificial intelligence.
They’ve developed a technology that can read human thoughts and convert them into text using an AI model similar to the popular chatbot, ChatGPT. Yes, you read that right, scientists can now read your thoughts!
It's clear that we're standing at the edge of a technological revolution, and the possibilities for the future of AI are truly mind-boggling.
The team used an fMRI machine to record 16 hours of brain activity from three human subjects as they listened to narrative stories.
They then trained a custom AI model to decode the neural stimuli that corresponded to individual words and translate them into text. Although only a gist of the participants’ thoughts was captured, the results had an impressive accuracy rate of up to 82 percent.
The implications of this breakthrough are significant, particularly for people who are physically incapable of expressing themselves. However, there are also concerns around mental privacy and potential misuse of the technology for nefarious purposes like government or employer surveillance.
Despite these concerns, the scientists are optimistic about the potential of their technology and its ability to decode continuous language for extended periods of time with complicated ideas.
