Machine learning's (ML) ability to make robots behave like humans was itself a pathbreaking innovation, and now it can read your mind too!
The rise in technological innovation has led to countless advancements in various industries. Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence.
Machine learning can accurately translate thoughts into sentences, at least for a limited vocabulary of 250 words.
The ability of machine learning to make machines act like humans - machine learning that enables machines to learn and adapt to their surroundings over time, as well as, deep learning techniques - have left humans stunned. Along with offering great, exciting, and fantastic innovations, now machine learning can read your mind too. Yes, you read it right! Machine learning has reached a level where it can not only behave and act like humans but also read the complex human mind.
Machine learning has offered countless benefits to various industries including retail, healthcare, and tourism. Right from its amazing features like speech recognition, predictive analytics, text analytics, and NLP to mind-blowing innovations such as chatbots, robotsand , self-driving cars, machine learning has come a very long way. Researchers have developed machine learning systems that can read the human mind, i.e., these systems can picture the stuff you see. According to researchers, complex human brain thoughts can be gauged by analyzing the flow of blood to the brain. This helps identify the electrical activity using the information from functional MRI scans and then using a decoder that helps to decode things that humans see. “One of the big advances of the human brain was the ability to combine individual concepts into complex thoughts, to think not just of ‘bananas,’ but ‘I like to eat bananas in the evening with my friends,” researchers said.
Machine learning is revolutionizing rapidly and various industries are already leveraging this technology to make exciting advancements in their respective areas. With this new found application of AI to read minds, various business sectors are expected to find ways to benefit. The technology can be used in the medical field for understanding, let’s say, the speech of patients who are having difficulty in speaking or cannot talk at all. Moreover, the technology can be useful for industries to understand the strategies and plans of their competitors; helping businesses plan their trends accordingly. Using predictive analytics and machine learning technology to read minds, companies can analyze the market trends, make better decisions, benchmark their industry standards, and stay ahead of the curve. Furthermore, this technology could prove to be beneficial for detecting intruders and analyzing their plan of corrupting any system. For instance, intruders are continually injecting polluted data, and AI can be used to identify the intruder by reading what's going on in her mind. ‘AI can read your mind,’ - this statement sounds exciting as well as scary. We’ve read about why it's exciting, but since privacy may become an issue with this new application, it’s scary too. Therefore, privacy is one aspect that must be dealt with alongside the development of the technology.
