Decoding Speech From Thoughts Without Brain Surgery

Posted by Peter Rudin on 30. September 2022 in News

The advanced pattern-recognition capabilities of AI deep learning offer new glimmer of hope of a non-invasive solution to help patients who are unable to speak due to neurodegenerative diseases.

To address this challenge, Meta AI researchers used AI deep learning, specifically a convolutional neural network (CNN), to help decode brain activity using data captured without open brain surgery.

As for the societal impact, the Meta AI researcher caution, “Although these results hold great promise for the development of a safe and scalable system to help patients with communication deficits, the scientific community should remain vigilant that it will not be adapted to decode brain signals without the consent of the participants.”
