Stanford scientists have developed new AI software turning into thoughts into sentences

Stanford scientists have recently developed new software that can turn mental handwriting into on-screen words and sentences. They have called it “mindwriting.”

In order to create this software, Stanford University researchers have used an artificial intelligence (AI) system with a device called a brain-computer interface (BC), that was implanted in the brain of a man with full-body paralysis. The software was then able to understand the information from the BCI and converted the man’s thoughts into a computer text.

This allowed the man to communicate and write quickly and more efficiently than any previous method developed before. This technology development could benefit millions of people who have been immobilized or have lost their ability to speak.

The software can enable a person with paralysis to compose sentences at speeds nearly comparable to those of able-bodied adults of the same age typing on a smartphone. This could then restore the ability to communicate by text.
