A Computer That Can Map Out Your Thoughts?

WRITTEN BY: Nouran Amin

Almost sounds like science fiction, but researchers at the University of Helsinki are working on creating images based on your thoughts. For decades, we’ve been trying to decipher the workings of a computer. This time, the study aims to help a computer decipher the human brain. But, how?

"The technique combines natural human responses with the computer's ability to create new information. In the experiment, the participants were only asked to look at the computer-generated images. The computer, in turn, modelled the images displayed and the human reaction toward the images by using human brain responses. From this, the computer can create an entirely new image that matches the user's intention," says Tuukka Ruotsalo, Academy of Finland Research Fellow at the University of Helsinki, Finland and Associate Professor at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The development is based on neuroadaptive generative modeling involving novel brain-computer interface.
