Engineers at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT have developed robots that can correctly sort objects by reading human minds using an electroencephalograph monitor. The system is programmed to detect brain signals known as “error-related potentials” when the person wearing the monitor sees them trying to put an object in the wrong place.
