Science is Figuring Out How To Use Brain Signals to Create Speech

This is incredible

Technology is currently being developed that would allow a computer to translate brain signals into speech.

If you know anyone that has ever had a major stroke, or dealt with ALS - you understand what a game changer this can be

The NY Times wrote the article:

Now, scientists are reporting that they have developed a virtual prosthetic voice, a system that decodes the brain’s vocal intentions and translates them into mostly understandable speech, with no need to move a muscle, even those in the mouth.

The new system, described on Wednesday in the journal Nature,deciphers the brain’s motor commands guiding vocal movementduring speech — the tap of the tongue, the narrowing of the lips — and generates intelligible sentences that approximate a speaker’s natural cadence.
