Swiss Researchers Develop Mind-Reading, A.I.-Enhanced Wheelchair
As Engadget reports, researchers at Switzerland's École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne have created a high-tech wheelchair that deciphers a user's EEG brain activity, but also refines his or her command with artificial intelligence technology. With the help of attached cameras and image-processing software, the system can automatically detect any obstacles in the chair's way, and even distinguish between different types of objects. (See a video demonstration after the break.) In case your real intelligence fails you, then, the chair's artificial intelligence will be there to back you up.
