Brainwave-Reading Implant Helps Paralyzed Man Who Can't Speak

A paralyzed man who cannot speak or type was able to spell out over 1,000 words using a neuroprosthetic device that translates his brain waves into full sentences, US researchers said Tuesday.

Scientists used a tiny brain implant to help a blind teacher see

A former science teacher who's been blind for 16 years became able to see letters, discern objects' edge thanks to a visual prosthesis that includes a camera and a brain implant.

Human Brains and Computers Connect Wirelessly for First Time

Another baby step toward melding mind and machine - a team of researchers has helped people with paralysis to send full-spectrum brain signals to computers wirelessly for the first time ever.

A computer predicts your thoughts

Finish researchers have developed a technique in which a computer models visual perception by monitoring human brain signals. In a way, it is as if the computer tries to imagine what a human is thinking about. 

Neuralink implants are close to ready for human testing

Roughly 1,000 electrodes will be inserted into the targeted collection of neurons, and those will connect to an implant above the surface of the brain. Musk said that it plans to do initial testing with tetraplegics. 

Will Elon Musk's Neuralink Shape the Future of Humanity?

The specific objective of Neuralink is to develop ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. Practically, this materializes as a chip that is implanted into the brain.

Elon Musk says Neuralink will do brain implants 'within a year'

Elon Musk has a vision of linking human brains to computers in order to avoid our species from being outpaced by artificial intelligence – and this dream is set to become a reality.

The 10 best new technologies coming out of CES 2020

CES is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. Here are the this year's highlights including robots and wearable devices.

First-ever successful mind-controlled robotic arm without brain implants

Using a noninvasive brain-computer interface (BCI), researchers have developed the first-ever successful mind-controlled robotic arm exhibiting the ability to continuously track and follow a computer cursor.

Step towards light-based, brain-like computing chip

Scientists have succeeded in developing a piece of hardware which could pave the way for creating computers resembling the human brain. They produced a chip containing a network of artificial neurons that works with light and can imitate neurons and their synapses.

Engineers translate brain signals directly into speech

In a scientific first, neuroengineers have created a system that translates thought into intelligible, recognizable speech. This breakthrough could lead to new ways for computers to communicate directly with the brain.

The Supercomputer, Modeled After the Human Brain, Is Up and Running

After a decade of development, a million-core version of the machine that will eventually be able to simulate up to a billion neurons, The SpiNNaker supercomputer, was switched on earlier this month.

Brain implants help paralyzed people use tablet apps

Devices that eavesdrop on neural activity can help paralyzed people command computer tablets to stream music, text friends, check the weather or surf the internet.

Computers for Mimicking Human Brain

A computer built to mimic the brain's neural networks produces similar results to that of the best brain-simulation supercomputer software currently used for neural-signaling research.

For the First Time Scientists Have Boosted Human Memory

A professor from the University of Southern California has demonstrated the use of a brain implant to improve the human memory.
