Neural network reconstructs human thoughts from brain waves in real time
  • Russian scientists have built an interface that can recreate videos through interpreting brain signals as the videos are being watched.
  • The interface utilizes artificial neural networks and EEGs to reconstruct images in real time.
  • This shows that an electroencephalogram (EEG, collection of brain signals recorded from scalp) can be used to reconstruct images from the brain.
  • This also means that EEGs can be the basis for non-invasive brain-computer interfaces without implants (as opposed to Elon Musk’s implanted neural interfaces).
