A penny for your thoughts?

An AI algo can now convert brainwaves to speech or text.
It seems the algo monitors brainwaves as a subject speaks and converts them in to sentences. Sort of what the subject himself or herself is doing but what if they had no speech? It seems the trained algorithm detects the brainwaves and converts to sentences in real time with less than a 3% word error rate!
It does have its limitations though as the algo was trained to decode up to 50 sentences. Results improved when different subjects speaking the same 50 sentences gave the algo more input.
