Artificial intelligence has learned to read thoughts

Artificial intelligence has learned to read thoughts A new algorithm for deep learning scientists from the University Carnegie Mellon can “read” a person’s thoughts by analyzing fMRI scans of the brain. About it reported in a press release from the University. “One of the great achievements of the human brain — the ability to combine individual concepts into complex thoughts. For example, to think not only about “bananas”, but that “I like to eat bananas in the evening with my friends,” said the study’s author Marcel Smith. — We’ve finally developed a way to see how to form complex thoughts using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the brain.
