Reconstructed Speech

These are frequency spectrograms of the actual spoken words (top) and the sounds as reconstructed by two separate models based solely on recorded temporal lobe activity in a volunteer subject. The words — Waldo, structure, doubt and property — are more or less recognizable, even though the model had never encountered these specific words before.  Credit: Brian Pasley, UC Berkeley
