Can we have the technology to recreate the informations (like images, sounds etc.)[as in the form of signals in our mind] from human mind to human understandable format? In short, can we read human mind?

  • $\begingroup$ Ist of all, i am posting this question again because i have asked that question but my account was not linked to it earlier, so i m unable to comment on it. $\endgroup$ – Khushhal Aggarwal Aug 26 '14 at 13:24

  • $\begingroup$ The question is slightly unclear to me. Although we can measure brain electrical activity and do things like fMRI but we can't read the human mind which is why I said the question is vague since the definition of reading the human mind is required. What I essentially mean is mind is the construct of the brain and although we can measure brain activity but mind reading is not yet possible unless we can have a highly exact knowledge of the brain activity to know how it is perceived, which I do not know if we have reached that stage yet. – Bez Aug 20 at 13:09 $\endgroup$ – Khushhal Aggarwal Aug 26 '14 at 13:26
  • $\begingroup$ For clarity, Let me ask in two ways: Our Eyes sees anything (e.g. an image of a tree) then convert into a signal/electric pulses; to be processed in mind and then stored in mind. Now, 1. Do we Have the Technology or machinery to read that image before conversion? and 2. Do we Have the Technology or machinery to read the signals after conversion? – Khushhal Aggarwal Aug 22 at 21:23 $\endgroup$ – Khushhal Aggarwal Aug 26 '14 at 13:26
  • $\begingroup$ In between these 2 questions, what happens is -- "CONVERSION" of that Information. That conversion method must be a "TECHNIQUE". Thus if we are able to design a machine to convert the same information by the same "TECHNIQUE" as used by the human mind, then it will be helpful to understand the signals after conversion. In short, can we define/design the mechanism to convert the the informations into signals/electric pulses? – Khushhal Aggarwal Aug 22 at 21:47 $\endgroup$ – Khushhal Aggarwal Aug 26 '14 at 13:27
