Engineering Minute – Mind Reading AI

AI reads "thoughts"; transcribes silent speech

Researchers at MIT have developed a wearable device and computer system that picks up nueromuscular signals in the jaw, when a person says a word in their head, and translates them into speech. The wearable device consists of bone-conduction headphones that transmit vibrations through the facial bones to the inner ear. The computer system interprets these vibrations and transcribes them into words. The system, named AlterEgo, is designed to allow the user to communicate silently with electronic devices such as a smartphone. Read more about AlterEgo at MIT.
