Forget Police Sketches: Researchers Perfectly Reconstruct Faces by Reading Brainwaves

Picture this: you’re sitting in a police interrogation room, struggling to describe the face of a criminal to a sketch artist. You pause, wrinkling your brow, trying to remember the distance between his eyes and the shape of his nose.

Suddenly, the detective offers you an easier way: would you like to have your brain scanned instead, so that machines can automatically reconstruct the face in your mind's eye from reading your brain waves?

Sound fantastical? It’s not. After decades of work, scientists at Caltech may have finally cracked our brain’s facial recognition code. Using brain scans and direct neuron recording from macaque monkeys, the team found specialized “face patches” that respond to specific combinations of facial features.

Like dials on a music mixer, each patch is fine-tuned to a particular set of visual information, which then channel together in different combinations to form a holistic representation of every distinctive face.

The values of each dial were so predictable that scientists were able to recreate a face the monkey saw simply by recording the electrical activity of roughly 200 brain cells. When placed together, the reconstruction and the actual photo were nearly indistinguishable.


Where are we heading with this stuff? Will we lose complete privacy of our thoughts in the future?

A new form of interrogating? Scan people's minds for information? Retrieve memories and read people's thoughts?

Hey Wonka! I want off this ride!!

I'm so glad I'm on the home stretch because I don't want to live in a world where this sort of thing is possible.

Just kidding.

You smell like roses.

There comes a day when someone will need someone. Let this be your thought for today. Time and chance happens to us all.

Utopia, that's where your headed. No more evil people with evil thoughts. No more liar liars -- ha ha, career politicians, your days are numbered.

Big Brother can actually become a reality with this kind of technology. You'll of course you'll want to accept the BORG implant, because you'll need it so that you can get paid at your joooob and buy food.

Everyone will only think happy thoughts with such a device monitoring their every thought. Think of it as an obedience collar. No more fighting, no more wars. No more cheating spouses, no more lying children.

This is going to be so awesome. Everyone will have a smile on their faces, everyone thinking only happy thoughts. Combine this with PC newspeak censorship and wow, bliss and harmony everywhere.

Here are some examples of this, and it's pretty accurate... see the predicted faces compared to the actual faces below:

It seems like the advancements we are getting for the human race are advancing the criminals abilities to steal, rob, rape, murder and destroy.
