London-based tech studio Random Quark has developed an algorithm that can turn a person’s memories into digital paintings. Scanning the brain of a person while recalling an emotional moment, they identify the type of emotion the individual experienced. For example, if more activity is occurring in the left hemisphere, the feeling is positive.
Applying the Geneva Emotional Wheel they can further categorize “what kind of happy” you are. Even if several memories trigger similar emotions (and translate to similar colours), the EEG data is never the same so the pattern/painting is always unique to the memory.
