>AlterEgo is a closed-loop, non-invasive, wearable system that allows humans to converse in high-bandwidth natural language with machines, artificial intelligence assistants, services, and other people without any voice—without opening their mouth, and without externally observable movements—simply by vocalizing internally. The wearable captures electrical signals, induced by subtle but deliberate movements of internal speech articulators (when a user intentionally vocalizes internally), in likeness to speaking to one's self. We use this to facilitate a bi-directional natural language computing system, where users receive aural output through bone-conduction earphones without obstructing a user's physical senses. This enables a user to transmit and receive streams of information to and from a computing device or any other person without any observable action, in discretion and without invasion of the user's privacy. AlterEgo aims to combine humans and computers—such that computing, the internet, and AI would weave into human personality as a “second self” and augment human cognition and abilities.



What do you think, /tech/? Will this technology replace the current input devices?

It may be helpful for non-verbal autism, according to some sources



Cool technology if it works. Looks pretty retarded, though.


Deus Ex's Infolink real life?!



>works by vocalizing internally

>basically reads your thoughts

What could go wrong?


Smells of vaporware. If it even works, which I wouldn't bet on, odds are it's like other bs devices and it messes up every other word so in practice it's useless.



That's the first thing I thought of, too. What if an evil corporation uses the data from these devices to read our thoughts/predict our behavior? It doesn't actually read our thoughts, though. It reads the muscles used in speech. So when you think about saying something you activate the muscles involved with the specific sounds and that's how it gathers its data. Therefore it shouldn't be able to read your mind unless you speak internally while you think. It's an interesting approach.




>reads your thoughts

Except it doesn't read your thoughts but rather your inner monologue, if at all. You'll most likely have to explicitly voicelessly 'voice' your thoughts for it to work, as it reads miniscule muscle movements.



Probably a lot more expensive than a cheap laptop and a coffee at some place with Wifi, yet no real advantage over encrypted email.

Also, AI assistants are botnet cancer of the highest level. This just makes the problem worse as now it doesn't just listen to what you say, it also listens to what you say internally.



imagine being able to shitpost only by thinking about it without moving a finger with more than 200 words per minute.

>AI is cancer

ai is a meme word, they are training a neural network which improves its results with time, because everyone speaks differently.



>research study by three university pajeets

>where years of calibration has got a sensor dildo you wear on your face to the point that it can read research project pajeet's subvocalizations

>as long as he's crabbing along like a hunchback and tensing his jaw in weird ways like he's having some sort of seizure

I'm not scared.



The germans literally had this during ww2 already


>PretentiousBullshit is a X, Y, Z that...

stopped reading ther

kill selves. all you did is integrate some old research (it was already known that voice can be captured this way) into a product
