‘Mind-reading’ AI: Japan study sparks ethical debate
Tokyo, Japan. Yu Takagi couldn’t believe his eyes. On a September Saturday afternoon, Yu Takagi sat alone at his desk and watched in amazement as artificial intelligence created images of the subject’s brain activities on a screen.
Takagi, 34-year old neuroscientist at Osaka University and assistant professor, said to Al Jazeera: \”I remember the first time I saw [AI-generated] pictures.\”
I went to the bathroom, looked in the mirror, saw my face and thought, \”Okay, this is normal.\” \”Maybe I’m going insane’\”.
