Researchers at NYU hope this algorithm will bring them one step closer to creating a wearable device that can monitor mental state.
Story at a glance
- Researchers at NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering were able to create a “novel inference engine” that can monitor brain activity via electrical impulses in the skin.
- The lead researcher, associate professor of biomedical engineering Rose Faghih, has been developing the technology for the past seven years.
- The new technology was tested on 26 healthy people and proved to decipher and interpret brain signals in seconds.
