Controlling Bionic Limbs with Thought

Prosthetic devices are getting smarter all the time. They are enabling people with serious injuries or amputations to live independently. IBM researchers have recently come up with a brain-machine interface that uses AI to enhance prosthetic limbs. They used deep-learning algorithms to decode activity intentions using data from an EEG system and had a robotic arm execute the task.

The robotic arm was linked to a camera and deep learning framework called GraspNet. As IBM explains, the system:

outperforms state of the art deep learning models in terms of grasp accuracy with fewer parameters, a memory footprint of only 7.2MB and real time inference speed on an Nvidia Jetson TX1 processor.
