Now from the "This is scary as $h!+" department. Apparently mind-reading technology can now transcribe people’s thoughts in real time based on the blood flow in their brains.
A study put three people in MRI machines and got them to listen to stories. For the first time, researchers claim, they produced a rolling text of people’s thoughts, and not just single words or sentences, without using a brain implant.
The technology did not exactly replicate the stories but captured the main points. The breakthrough raises some serious concerns about ‘mental privacy’ as it could be the first step in being able to eavesdrop on others’ thoughts. On top of it all "the Grandfather of Ai quit to warn about his lifes work on the subject"
What are your thoughts worth? Is there a price? Whose thoughts would you like to track for a day?
