Popular social media Facebook has begun working on a technology that can collect human thoughts directly from neurons and turn them into letters.
The social media company has been trying for years to invent a device to understand the thoughts of the human brain. Within a year of the announcement of such technology in 2016, they invested in brain-machine interface research.
Now Facebook says it is experimenting with mind-blowing technology to help paralysis patients. The brain signal will be decoded and converted into letters.
CTRL Lab, a small US start-up, is working on a device called Lab Wristband. They are now connected with Facebook. They claim that the human brain will be connected to the computer through this device.
According to BuzzFeed News, Facebook discussed the new neural sensor at their annual meeting. The media did not disclose the details of the meeting. Suffice it to say, an audio record sent for staff purposes emphasizes this type of artificial intelligence. Trying to bring it quickly.
Earlier, several technologists said that such a discovery is a really difficult task. And if Facebook does, it will be a new chapter in the history of social media and technology.
There is a lot of competition in the technology world to invent such devices. Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has also said for years that they have been working on a device that can read the minds of paralyzed people.
The BBC spoke to a scientist working on such a device on the human brain. The woman researcher, Mahnaz Urbaneh, studied at the University of Sheffield. He calls this process the ‘non-invasive technique’, where the conductor reaches the top of the skull; Not inside the brain. This method will record the electrical activity.
Asked how far such technology has come, he said that even a few years ago it seemed like science fiction. But now the reality is catching up. We have had success using some of these technologies for patients with Parkinson’s disease.
He said such devices would come out of various labs very quickly. Revolution can happen. The neural interface is going to be a groundbreaking discovery. This will change the way we interact with the environment. People’s lives will change.
