A working brain-to-text system may be a lot closer to reality than most people might think (pun intended). Such technology may open up possibilities for direct human-to-computer interfaces and the like; real science fiction stuff.
German and U.S. researchers have decoded natural continuously spoken speech from brain waves and transformed it into text — a step toward communication with computers or humans by thought alone.
Their “Brain-to-Text” system recorded signals from an electrocorticographic (ECoG)* electrode array located on relevant surfaces of the frontal and temporal lobes of the cerebral cortex of seven epileptic patients, who participated voluntarily in the study during their clinical treatment.Kurtzweil
