    A device created by MIT is beeing able to decipher the signals send by the brain to the muscles in the face.

    To communicate by thoughts could soon be no longer science fiction. Searchers of the pretigious Massachuesetts Institue of Technology (MIT) have developed AlterEgo, a device able to decode what the user wants to express. He analysis the signals sent from the brain to the muscles of the face during the process of verbalization.

    The portable device deploys sensors distributed over seven areas between the ear, cheek and
    the chin.

    The signals pass then by techniques of automatic learning to correlate them with defined words.


    "AlterEgo can recognize the numbers from 0 to 9 and has a vocabulary of about 100 words" his designer precised, Arnav Kapur. The MIT graduate welcomes for example, a rate of precision of more than 90% with a dictionary - to say the least - 20 words. "But i think we'll may manage complete conversations one day, he added. The system is also equipped with a chip linked to a programm that could interrogate Google. So no voice controls are needed to obtain informations."You talk to him. He speaks to you. But no word is said, "resume Kapur.

    AlterEgo promises applications in various fields, like that of the handicap or security. He includes also earphones that work by bone conduction sound, a technology assuring the bearer of the device a listening without beeing tracked by unwanted ears.


    So and for fun the google translation to gain time i changed that i gave sense

    I am curious about this idea because I have some reservations about AI. It is built to allow a person to silently communicate with devices and perhaps others using the same device, without speaking.

    This might be good for someone who has had a stroke and cannot speak, which becomes very frustrating for them. However, the videos are showing it as a cool thing with young people demonstrating its use.

    So, I'm back in my conundrum - seeing some positives for people with physical problems but concerned that it may end up like an invisible barrier that isolates people from each other.

    Thanks for bringing this one to our attention.

    I did find some more info about it. https://www.media.mit.edu/projects/alterego/overview/
