Machine recreates images from your brain

21 posts in this topic

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

In the future they'll just tattoo a alpha numerical code on the foreheads and the pictures need not be so accurate ... ~

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.

If this was closer to Apil 1st, I'd say B.S.

Mmm. This is B.S.

I honestly do not believe this. READ, don't watch, "The Minority Report", by P. K. Dick, for a concept on how this research can be misused. His accuracy on the actions of our armed forces Generals is amazing as well.

Combine this technology with what we already know about 'Recovered Memory Syndrome,' and you have--at the very least-- a forensic Black Hole to contend with. Where is the assurance that either the original remembered face (or other attribute), or the electronic reconstruction, are dependable to establish anything "real."

Eyewitness testimony is notoriously unreliable. Why reconstruct unreliable memories?

seeder... that article is not entirely accurate at all.

What actually happened is that the "reconstruction" was from a computer averaging of many subjects(I think 30, could be wrong) that created the end-result "image"

The original, validated study, showed that individual images from the individuals were VERY grainy. Practically useless.

That's why there was the computer compilation from the 30.

Nonetheless, a great step forward.
