Neuroscientists decode human thoughts into text in real-time

Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), have successfully synthesized human thoughts into real-time speech. This paves the way for consumer devices that can respond to thoughts without the need for the user to audibly state commands.

In April, researchers at UCSF announced a ‘neural speech prosthesis’ that could produce relatively natural-sounding speech from decoded brain activity. In a study published today, they revealed that they continued that work and have successfully decoded brain activity as speech in real-time. They have been able to turn brain signals for speech into written sentences. The project aims to transform how patients with severe disabilities can communicate in the future.
