So basically, you think of someone, anyone, specially their face. This machine then prints out the face you thought of!!


The machine that knows what you are thinking about: Groundbreaking mind-reading experiment reconstructs the faces people are looking at from their scans of their brains

    Researchers used fMRI scans for experiments
    Were able to tell which faces subjects were looking at
    Could be used by police to identify criminals from witnesses brains
    Could also help reconstruct dreams
    Believed to be most advanced 'mind reading' experiment ever carried out

They say the discovery could allow witnesses to create e-fits simply by thinking about a criminal's face - and could even help reconstruct dreams.

I wouldn't have thought they could afford it, but how scary if they did - and they scanned you, and you were NOT thinking of the Great Leader 'Kim mentally ill'?

Exactly.

Kind of like a Logan's Run pulsing light, but on your forehead that warns when you are not thinking of the Dear Leader.

this seems like it must be using some sort of computer program designed around reproducing human faces though?   What would it print out if you pictured a pyramid ?  Or a Spoon?       Interesting though..  it seemed to get the skin tone/shade fairly close

Oh boy, I hope the police do not take this on board just yet, looking at the above pics I can see a lot of wronful arrests!....mind you, the  reconstructions are so ugjy...arrest them anyway!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

It sure does.  This was a team led by and undergraduate. Give that person 8 more years to work on it and the results could be amazing.
