Intel, together with Brown University, has launched a project to create an intelligent interface for restoring limbs to work after a spinal cord injury.
 
It is reported by ZDNet.
 
The development will also be attended by doctors from the Rhode Island Hospital and Micro-Leads Medical employees who have developed high-precision spinal cord stimulation technology. Part of the funding will be provided by a DARPA grant of $ 6.3 million.
 
Intel will provide hardware and software for the project, as well as help create algorithms that decode nerve impulses.
 
AI will be the basis for special implants that will implant volunteers with spinal cord injuries. The device will pick up motor and sensor signals and transmit them bypassing the damaged area.
 
In the first stages, the implant will use an external computer system to decode the pulses. However, in the future it will become fully autonomous.
 
Artificial intelligence can help not only patients with severe spinal cord injuries, but also those who suffer from chronic back pain. For example, the Kaia Health AI application selects an individual set of exercises for each and monitors the correctness of their implementation.
 
Earlier, experts from the Department of Defense Advanced Defense Research Projects Agency (DARPA) at the US Department of Defense announced their intention to develop special programs that will allow the computer to explain the choice of an action in the process.
