Researchers have demonstrated a striking method to reconstruct words, based on the brain waves of patients thinking of those words.
Based on signals from listening patients, a computer model was used to reconstruct the sounds of words that patients were thinking of.

The method may in future help comatose and locked-in patients communicate.

Several approaches have in recent years suggested that scientists are closing in on methods to tap into our very thoughts; the current study achieved its result by implanting electrodes directly into a part of participants' brains.



What think, Pit?


Could you one day just post in here by thinking what you want to say?

The day where we can read each other's minds is drawing ever closer.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

And there's still a chance we did not. Not trying to open a can of worms, just saying.

Reading minds and going to the moon aren't the slightest bit related.

This means that the government can control what goes on in our minds. This is the work of the Capitalist scum keeping the working man down.

Your statement was a very generalized one.


Personally though, i don't like the idea. No privacy. Governments may well try to use it to invade privacy.

The day we all realise how truly disgusting and perverse we all are is drawing ever closer.

Fair enough. In this instance, because we can doesn't mean we should.

I agree somewhat, in that it's a complete invasion of privacy if it were to be used by the state in the future. But then, one has to admit, it would lead to a world with vastly diminished crime, and every 'bad' thought would eventually be eradicated from mankind.. Just makes me think of 1984. Man I love that book.
We've survived before, we'll do it agian. Play up Pompey.

That's the thing that scares me about it. This could be used for good to allow people to speak when they previously couldn't, but this could also be used for control. It's a little scary.

If used for the good of man, it's good. If used for allowing a few to control many, it's bad.

Going by the track record of mankind, it's bad.

Scientifically interesting, ethically/morally, murder, IMO.
