MIT invented a device that can hear words in your mind

Anyone who is a fan of science fiction is likely to know about the concept of sub vocalization, practice of silently calling out words in your head.

MIT invented a device that can hear words in your mind

It’s a common habit f people while reading but now this concept is being incorporated in technology t interact with computers and mobile devices of various sorts.

To achieve that goal many were working but recently MIT researchers have made a breakthrough in this regard. They have invented a device that can be worn on face and measures the neuromuscular signals that are triggered when a person starts to sub vocalize.

The gadget looks like a medical device one wears on her face but it is likely to get smaller in size and the applications can be virtually limitless.

This MIT device has electrodes that pick up the signals when a person vocalizes internally. It also has bone conduction headphones that use the vibrations of the bones in inner ear without causing any blockage to ear canal. These signals and vibrations data is then sent to a computer that distinguishes in between words by using neural networks.

So far the device has been used to navigate Roku, asking for time and reporting the moves of a Chess opponent for getting optimal counter moves via computer. All of this was done in complete silence.

The device was built by a team of MIT grad students. The lead author of this group is Arnav Kapur who gave a statement saying that, “the idea behind this was to build an IA (intelligence augmentation) Device.

Our idea was to build a computing platform that was more internal, a system that can be combined with human and a machine in minor ways. That would feel like an internal extension of our own intellect.”
