Telepathic communication just ‘a matter of time’ as twins reveal blueprint for brain interface

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Studying how a set of conjoined twins know what the other is seeing has “validated” a ground-breaking approach to brain implants that could have come straight from the science fiction TV series Black Mirror.

Despite having separate brains, the twins in Canada can communicate thoughts and see or feel each other’s sensory input, even if their respective eyes are closed, prompting scientists from a US-based artificial intelligence (AI) developer to take a closer look.

Dr Phillip Alveda, founding chief executive of, said functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) showed the twins’ brains were connected via a single passage which led into each thalamus.
