This technology is able to help people who can not speak independently.
We live in a truly amazing time: many futuristic technologies, which a couple of decades ago were just an invention of science fiction writers, are gradually being realized today, reports Chronicle.info, citing Esoreiter.
So, the staff of the University of California said the other day that they managed, using advanced artificial intelligence, to transform the signals of the human brain, which we call thoughts, into speech. Probably someday, using such technology, dumb people can easily communicate in our world.
The fact is that even when we utter words mentally, certain areas responsible for lip movement are activated in our brain. A special device reads this activity and turns it into a synthesized voice. Volunteers participated in the development of the technology, and electrodes were connected to their heads. Experiments read (mentally) excerpts from children's books, and two artificial neural networks at this time converted the received signals into voice speech.
Turning on the video below, you can hear the result with your own ears. Despite the fact that while artificial intelligence reproduces words that are mentally pronounced by a person, it is not very clear (the conversion accuracy is now just under 70%), in the future, the Americans intend to significantly improve this figure.

It was expected that it became clear that the shorter the sentences the person mentally utters in his head, the more accurate the result will be.
