Can machines read minds? Neuroscientists in Australia and the US have made remarkable strides in harnessing the power of AI to ‘read’ the brain’s electrical signals, translating them into natural language. Machines that can read minds can give voice to the voiceless, but what do they portend for privacy? Leading researchers and privacy experts join Brian Greene to explore the function and ethical implications of this technological breakthrough.
