Capturing Words from Silent Speech

An Indication of how AI can become very powerful, even replacing the need for actual speech with mouthed muscle activity.  A kind of pattern recognition.

UC Berkeley researchers detect ‘silent speech’ with electrodes and AI

Khari Johnson  @kharijohnson in VentureBeat

UC Berkeley researchers say they are the first to train AI using using silently mouthed words and sensors that collect muscle activity. Silent speech is detected using electromyography (EMG), with electrodes placed on the face and throat. The model focuses on what researchers call digital voicing to predict words and generate synthetic speech.

Researchers believe their method can enable a number of applications for people who are unable to produce audible speech and could support speech detection for AI assistants or other devices that respond to voice commands.  ... "
