MIT makes breakthrough in brain controlled robots

Experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have completed a system which will enable humans to control robots using their brain waves and incase of error can autocorrect itself.

Scientists from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab at MIT have created a robot named ‘Baxter’ which can be controlled using brain power. Scientists have dubbed this system a great breakthrough in communication between robots and humans.

Currently it can follow only simple binary directions like identifying objects placed in front of it, however, scientists are sure that the day when humans will use robots just by their brain to perform complex actions is not that far.

This system will also correct any mistakes made by the robot and this feature is the system’s biggest success. MIT experts have said that slowly but steadily the robot will learn to study and understand the human brain and it will work more efficiently.
