Stanford U’s Brain-Computer Interface Enables Stroke and ALS Patients to ‘Speak’ 62 Words per Minute

A Stanford University research team presents a brain-computer interface for translating speech-related neural activity into text (speech BCI) in the new paper A High-performance Speech Neuroprosthesis. Theirs is the first speech BCI to record impulse activity from intracortical microelectrode arrays and could benefit people unable to produce clear utterances due to diseases such as stroke and ALS.
