From IEEE Spectrum:
In 2017, Facebook’s Mark Chevillet gave himself two years to prove whether it was feasible to build a non-invasive technology able to read out 100 words per minute from brain activity.
It’s been two years, and the verdict is in: “The promise is there,” Chevillet told IEEE Spectrum. “We do think it will be possible.”
As research director of Facebook Reality Labs’ brain-computer interface program, Chevillet plans to push ahead with the project—and the company’s ultimate goal to develop augmented reality (AR) glasses that can be controlled without having to speak aloud.
