t was recently announced that a team of researchers at the University of Cambridge has created a brain implant which can be used to translate thought into spoken words. As they state in their paper, this could be used to help people with paralysis or other conditions which have limited or impaired speech. The results so far from the research are quite promising and the team is already beginning to work on further tests to measure the effectiveness of their new brain implant.
In the paper, it is said that the device is able to transmit the patient’s thoughts into written sentences, which is then sent to a server of the same name and translated into spoken words. There is the option for the patient to make the device communicate with their vocal chords, using what is called a LEEP unit. This unit is actually similar to a simple computer that you use to communicate by voice and is considered somewhat futuristic as well as a type of voice synthesizer. However, even though some people have expressed an interest in this particular brain implant, there are still a few skeptics that are wondering if it will be possible for someone to communicate through their brain implants in the future.
The decision here is going to have to come down to how much money is being spent on the research of the A.I. Brain Implant Translates Thoughts into Spoken Words or how fast the technology is developed. If it takes a lot longer than five years for the technology to become available for use in the field of medicine, then the brain implant system should not be considered. However, if the scientists behind the research to achieve the goals that they have set forth for the system, then it may be one of the greatest innovations ever in the field of medicine. However, the development of this technology may take a little while to work out and the needs of the patient may be greatly underestimated. If this was to happen, there may be many people who become slaves to their own thoughts for the rest of their lives.
