Non-Verbal Transcription technology April 5, 2018

In other tech news… that sits a little bit into the realm of what me might have thought of not so long ago, as sci-fi,

researchers have developed a tech that can read neuromuscular movement of the face, and in turn decipher the words the wearer or user has

intended in that moment.

MIT researchers have developed a computer interface that can transcribe words that the user verbalizes internally but does not actually speak aloud.The system consists of a wearable device and an associated computing system. Electrodes in the device pick up neuromuscular signals in the jaw and face that are triggered by internal verbalizations — saying words “in your head” — but are undetectable to the human eye. The signals are fed to a machine-learning system that has been trained to correlate particular signals with particular words.
