Mind Reading Artificial Intelligence System
Turning Brain Activity to Text
Source: Stock Image of the Brain
97% Accuracy Rate
Researchers at the University of California
San Francisco have created a new artificial
intelligence system that literally reads the
mind with 97% accuracy. The AI translates
brain activity into complete sentences. This
is a huge breakthrough in innovation. Nothing
has come close to this AI system. Previous
systems attempting to "read your mind" were
only 70% intelligible.
The researchers developed their system
by mimicking machine translation. They
realized there are strong parallels between
translating brain signals to text and machine
translations between languages using neural
networks. Machine translation does an entire
sentence at once. They designed their new
AI system to convert brain activity into
full sentences. In fact, it can translate from
human brain waves 30 to 50 sentences that
use basic vocabulary words.
Many Potential Uses
The scientists believe this approach could be
invaluable for people who can't speak. Their
thoughts could be converted to text. In the
future we may be able to type a document by
simply thinking. The scientists envision the
eventual telepathic control of our devices by
This new AI system needs continued development
before we're able to control devices byjust thinking.
Robot, Cut My Lawn Source: Husqvarna Mowers Robo Mowers Powered by Batteries - No Gas It's at the top of my robotic wish list. A robot lawn mower. No astronomical bills and upselling from lawn service companies. Just a nicely cut lawn and no hassles. Innovation seems to be knocking at the front door with news on robotic mowers. Green Robots at the Cutting Edge There's a slew of new robot mowers. Models include Worx Landroid for smaller lawns, Honda that cuts and feeds lawns, Robomow for all-purpose mowing and Husqvarna that's loaded with cell & GPS tech. These mowers aren't cheap. Prices range from $1000 to $3500. They're powered by rechargeable batteries so they're quiet. You pay more for online enhancements. And, if your lawn is loaded with trees and hills, your robot mower is going to be a lot more expensive. Grass Vacuums Robot mowers look a lot like big robot vacuums such as iRobot's Roomba. They roam and groom your lawn. Their

New Invention: Tablet Toothpaste "Change Toothpaste" Source: Change Toothpaste Potentially Cuts 900 Million Plastic Toothpaste Tube Throwaways Per Year Tubes of toothpaste aren't something you think about but their impact on the global environment is hugely negative. 900 million toothpaste tubes are discarded into oceans and landfills globally every year. Importantly, it takes 500 years for them to breakdown, which means virtually every toothpaste tube created is still discarded someplace in the world. And, the tubes, which contain multiple layers of plastic, polymers and resins, can't be recycled. A company headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta Canada just came up with a solution in the form of tablet toothpaste. "Paste with No Waste" Entrepreneurs Mike Medicoff and Damien Vince are the inventors and founders of CHANGE Toothpaste. Their tablet toothpaste is an all natural vegan substance that works just like toothpaste but has no harsh chemic
