Scientists Create Artificial Intelligence to Turn Thoughts into Words

Neuroscientists have created a system to translate thought to speech. The technology is able to clearly speak words, laying the groundwork for helping people who cannot speak, such as those recovering from a stroke or living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis,
