By measuring brain signals, the AI was able to decipher what the person had heard from the story.In this way, the volunteers' brains acted as an intermediary between the AI and a recording, giving Meta a powerful tool to understand thought on less than three seconds of brain data.
The correct answer was usually in the AI's 'top 10 guesses'. However, the machine has almost no practical use because of how expensive it is, making it impractical for clinical uses.Read more on dailystar.co.uk
