A year ago, a team from the University of California at San Francisco showed the possibilities of an experimental study of the brain-computer for word recognition. Then an implantation placed in the speech-motor part of the brain of a paralyzed person was able to capture and decipher, using language modeling, the 50 most common words when the patient simply thought about them. The new version of the neuroprosthesis is more flexible – it looks like an owl, but it has almost no borders?

Patience for the pseudonym BRAVO1 endured inserting at 22 years old. However, his cognitive abilities healed, and in his 30s he mastered several technologies. Cheny took advantage of this quality and beat him mentally “pronounce” an owl due to the content of the material. For example, “cat” would appear as “Katya, Oleg, Tamara”.

After the acquisition and adaptation of the bravo1 patient, the stem began to recognize him with a typing speed of 29 to 29. The error does not exceed 6%; during the last experiment, BRAVO1 successfully typed 1150 words. This covers 85% of the basic phrases in niyo, talkmomomomome, but potentially with s s s s s Most people haven’t used that much in a year.

Now BRAVO1 actively communicates with scientists, describing the conditions of his life, talking about the advantages and benefits of technology for partially paralyzed people – for example, a doctor’s diet is not to taste.
