At this point, my mom thinks some AI applications have become nothing far from magic.

Today, we are going to talk about one of those cases, NOIR.

Developed by Stanford University, this is a model that allows humans to move robots with their minds, something not short of extraordinary.

NOIR is a general-purpose model with the capacity to decode imagined motions through brain signals into interpretable robotic motions that execute the action imagined by the person.

Thanks to advancements like NOIR, one can envision a world where physically-impaired humans control their surroundings and live their lives independently, just like anyone else.

But first, how does it work?

Most insights I share in Medium have previously been shared in my weekly newsletter, TheTechOasis.
