Pretty amazing.
The medical implications are obvious, but maybe research like this will also be applied to computers and robotics so we can better communicate with them.
Right now trying to talk to a bot is extremely frustrating. They drive me nuts.
It's like talking to someone that's totally distracted and replying with vague generic gibberish.

Yeah, I've heard, but I've been pretty lucky that way so far.
You can also just sit not responding until the machine gives up and connects you to real people.

I don't use any of the voice command technologies on my computer. The only ones I'm familiar with are the automated customer service bots. I put up with those for a minute or 2 and then press 0 to get a real person.

I dictate to Goggle and sometimes it gets it completely wrong.
Many years ago my husband had the voice dictation program at work and here. It had to be trained. Goggle is better but, still annoying.
