Being able to think at a machine, who can then understand you or speak out loud for you, may be a reality in our near future.

Researchers from three teams used data obtained from brain tumor removal surgeries or through electrodes planted on epilepsy patients' brains to pinpoint the origin of seizures, and trained an AI to interpret the brain activity data into speech, reports Science Magazine.

Computer - Models - Individual - Signals - Speech

Before you get too excited though, computer models can only be trained on each individual, because the signals that translate speech apparently differ from person to person, and the extremely precise nature of the data required needs the skull to be opened.

Accuracy of the reconstructed speech ranged from 40 to 80 percent accuracy and understandability. However, none of...
