Artificial intelligence now capable of reading minds

I’ve seen enough movies to know that this won’t end well for any of us mortals. Someone needs to pull the plug. STAT.

From New Scientist:

Artificial intelligence is getting better at reading your mind. An AI could guess what videos people were watching purely from their brainwaves.

Grigory Rashkov at Russian research firm Neurobotics and his colleagues trained an AI using video clips of different objects and brainwave recordings of people watching them. The recordings were made using an electroencephalogram (EEG) cap and the video clips included nature scenes, people on jet skis and human expressions.

Mind-reading AIs are still only looking at the surface of human thought, says Victor Sharmas at the University of Arizona. “What we are currently seeing is a caricature of human experience, but nothing remotely resembling an accurate recreation,” he says.
