Reading one’s mind is now traversing from the realms of science fiction to the realities of neuroscience labs, and artificial intelligence deserves the credit. While researchers learned to peek into the brains and decipher thoughts a few years back, the “clairvoyant” capabilities of AI are taking this business to a next level.

Tech giants such as Facebook have already revealed their plans to develop devices that would let users key in their thoughts directly without typing, notes New Scientist.

Earlier this year, researchers from Japan unveiled an AI program capable of dishing out written descriptions of the visual activity in one’s brain as one watched a picture, reports Digital Trends.
