Artificial intelligence to help patients with prosthetics
Millions of people worldwide suffer from deteriorated motor abilities resulting from strokes, brain tumour surgery or accidents. In most cases, prosthetic and assistive devices are the only option. The EU-funded MAIA project is taking one step further by designing a human-centric artificial intelligence (AI) to control prosthetic and assistive devices fitting on robotic arms, wheelchairs and exoskeletons. MAIA technology will be interactive, encouraging the confrontation between AI decision, user intention and real needs. Natural and fast communication as well as new forms of neural and behavioural data combinations will be identified, moving beyond current data processing methods. Such principles will be the core idea around which the MAIA ecosystem will be developed, laying the foundations for biomedical human centric AI.
