Researchers have created a mind-reading AI

Australian scientists have unveiled DeWaves, a technology that translates human thoughts into understandable text. The study was published on a preprint server and presented at the NeurIPS 2023 conference.

Researchers from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) have made breakthroughs in the field of artificial intelligence and neuroscience. Their development, called DeWaves, is capable of translating thoughts into text using non-invasive technology that only requires a device that fits tightly to the body.

Computer scientist Chin-Ten Lin from UTS said their research represents the first successful attempt to directly translate raw EEG waves into understandable language. The move promises to make communication easier for people with disabilities, such as stroke survivors or paraplegics.

DeWaves operates on the basis of EEG, recording brain waves through a special device worn on the head, and then converting them into text. The researchers have already achieved translation accuracy of over 40%, which is a 3% improvement over previous methods.

An important difference between DeWaves and other technologies is its non-invasiveness. While invasive methods require surgery or expensive equipment, DeWaves uses simple tools to read brain waves.

Despite the success, the research team aims to increase accuracy to 90%, comparable to conventional language translation or speech recognition software.

DeWaves is an important step in the field of assistive technology and artificial intelligence, enabling the development of more accessible and intuitive methods of human-machine interaction.
