A new technology developed by University of Texas at Austin scientists can turn a person’s thoughts into readable text. 🤔

Alex Huth is an assistant professor of neuroscience in computer science at UT-Austin. He worked with doctoral student, Jerry Tang, to develop what is called a “semantic decoder.” This technology uses artificial intelligence to interpret brain activity and can allow communication with someone who is mentally conscious but may be unable to speak, like someone who’s had a stroke.

How does it work? Huth describes, “We put a person in an MRI scanner, kind of like the one where you would get a medical MRI. But we’re doing functional MRI so we can record what’s happening in the brain. We build up a mapping of where different ideas, different thoughts are represented in the brain over many hours of training. And then we can use our algorithms to read those ideas out into words. So we can decode words that somebody is hearing if they’re listening to a podcast, for example, or even just thinking – if they’re telling a story inside their head.”

Huth and Tang are quick to reassure us that this technology won't invade our privacy by reading our every thought. It requires the participant's consent and cooperation to scan their brain activity. Plus, the AI is currently only able to decode simple sentences and not our deepest, darkest secrets.

Although this isn’t mind-reading in the sci-fi sense of the word, this major breakthrough is just the beginning of mind-reading technology. 🧠


Scientists from the Institute of AI Research have unveiled a cutting-edge AI tool capable of detecting Parkinson's disease years before any noticeable symptoms appear. This remarkable breakthrough in medical technology promises to revolutionize early detection and potentially transform countless lives. 🙏

How does it work? This sophisticated tool harnesses the power of machine learning to analyze a vast array of data. By scrutinizing subtle patterns in voice recordings, typing patterns, and even facial expressions, it uncovers telltale signs of the disease that were previously undetectable.

Dr. Genevieve Sparks, a renowned neurologist, exclaimed, "It's like having a secret detective that uncovers Parkinson's clues years in advance!" She emphasizes that early detection can significantly enhance treatment options, allowing patients to access therapies that slow the progression of the disease earlier than ever before and maintain a better quality of life.

The implications of this technological breakthrough extend far beyond Parkinson's disease. It opens doors for further research into the early detection of other neurodegenerative disorders, enabling proactive medical interventions and advancing the field of personalized medicine. 🙂


Sweetgreen, the popular salad chain, has recently unveiled its newest location in downtown Naperville, Illinois. But what sets this particular Sweetgreen apart from the rest? Their salad-making robots might have something to do with it.
