Carnegie Mellon University computer program reads human mind
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, June 10, 2008
Scientists at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh are training a computer to decode the human mind. Their computer program can read a person's brain scan and figure out what noun he or she is thinking. The goal is to perfect the program so that it can help autistic, schizophrenic or paralyzed people. The work expands on a separate study the same scientists published showing that people's brains activate similarly when they think about the same word.
