Intel works to improve communication skills of Stephen Hawking January 23, 2013
When Stephen Hawking has something to say about the mysteries of the world of physics and the universe as a whole, we listen. Unfortunately, his decades long battle with Lou Gehrig’s disease (read more here ), his communication skills are deteriorating. That’s why Hawking had to seek help from Intel .
Now Hawking uses a proprietary system that is based on his cheek twitches and movements of his eyes. It is defined by the words, for the fate of which already meet the computerized voice synthesizer.
The problem is that the average typing speed – one word per minute.
When Hawking turned to Intel’s request to solve the problem, Chief Technology Officer Justin Rattner Intel accepted the challenge. The basis of his system is the sensitivity to other mimic displays. The platform will enable the mouth movements Hawking and his eyebrows, and this will help to create words ten times faster. Couple this with the strength of the Morse code, and Hawking spoke again.
