Mind Reading: New Technology That Processes Human Thoughts

Published on February 1, 2016 by   ·   No Comments



Researchers have successfully tested a technique that could potentially allow a computer to decode the thought process of the human mind.

A team of scientists from the University of Washington (WU) developed a method that could potentially be applied to paralyzed people to establish a form of mind-reading communication.

Results of the recent experiments intimate that, with the use of brain implants and special software, computers could be able to convert information from brain signals to accurately determine what images a person sees at a particular moment, in real time.

Seven patients with severe epilepsy took part in an experiment led by neuroscientist Rajesh Rao and neurosurgeon Jeff Ojermann, alongside a team of scientists from WU. The patients had electrodes temporarily implanted into their temporal lobes so that doctors could observe the focal point of a seizure.

During the experiment the subjects were exposed to a certain visual information. They were told to look for an image of an upside-down house in a set of photos flickering on computer monitors in brief 400 millisecond intervals, a random combination of images from pictures of human faces and houses to blank gray screens. Meanwhile, machines were detecting the electrical activity of the brain via electrodes connected to sophisticated software.
