Equal parts totally awesome and totally mind-blowing. A team from the University Of California Berkeley discovered how to reconstruct the 1979 song after placing electrodes on the brains of patients and playing the music as they underwent epilepsy surgery. They then analysed the brainwaves, allowing the neuroscientists to reproduce the track’s rhythm and pick out recognisable lines such as “All in all it’s just another brick in the wall,” effectively reverse-engineering the track. We think we can all agree that this is a little more feel-good than AI, eh. Read the full study here, if you’re interested
Neuroscientists have reproduced Pink Floyd classic Another Brick in the Wall by… decoding the brain signals of a person listening to it.
