Why does it feel like I’m back in the future?
What if your smartphone could read your thoughts and send them to the cloud?
That is the question raised by the latest research into the mind-controlled robot, called Rethink Robotics.
A team of researchers led by MIT neuroscientist Yann LeCun has developed a software program called “Brain-to-Brain” that can read thoughts and create a digital “brain.”
A brain-to–brain interface allows a person to control their thoughts and physical surroundings using computer vision.
A recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showed the computer program can simulate a person’s thoughts, making it easier to train the brain.
The researchers found that the program also could simulate physical interactions with a robot.
This could be used to control the robot’s movements.
In a similar vein, a team led by University of Florida neuroscientists in 2017 discovered that they could also create a computer simulation of the human brain.
This allowed the researchers to control a computer’s behavior with an electrical signal.
The Rethinks program can also simulate the human nervous system and create “brain-to” interfaces.
Rethinks is designed to be used for purposes such as learning, therapy, and education.
Although Rethankos brain-computer interface was developed in partnership with researchers at the University of Michigan, it is not yet commercially available.
The research team, led by LeCon, is now working to get it onto the market.
One of the biggest problems with these type of “brain to” interfaces is the ability to interact with the device itself.
While this is great for developing new applications, the device’s ability to read a person is not.
It is unclear how long the technology will take to make it into consumer products.
This type of brain-controlled interface has also been used to create computer games, and it’s possible this will happen with Rethansk.
It may also be possible to develop a wearable version of Rethaskos, similar to the Oculus Rift.
With the development of this type of interface, researchers hope to be able to “see” the mind of a person through the device.
That way, they can control it and learn about their thinking.
“It’s a bit like seeing the brain in the flesh,” said LeCons co-founder, John R. LeCron.
If this technology is used to aid people with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, it could also help people living with cognitive disorders, such as autism.
Researchers hope to use this technology in the treatment of dementia, which has been shown to affect more than a third of the population.
