A machine learning system that helps limited individuals communicate.

"A COGNITIVE STORY"

This open-source project's goal is to develop a machine learning system that helps limited individuals communicate by identifying brainwave patterns to detect intentions and express them to people or systems.

IT STARTED WITH A TWEET

The project stems from a single tweet asking @IBM to help a quadriplegic Canadian woman.

 

 

PROOF OF CONCEPT

To date, the team has successfully built a proof of concept that shows it is possible to achieve this goal.  

This system’s functionality measures brain patterns, processes data, displays outcomes and learns through the interaction between the mother and her daughter. In essence, it measures brain waves through an EEG device that are then processed using cognitive computing.

PHASE ONE

Status: Completed

Goal: Produce a proof-of-concept (POC) that shows it is possible to augment the communication of limited individuals by identifying brainwave patterns to detect intentions and express them to people or systems.

PHASE TWO

Status: In-Progress

Goal: Produce a new brainwave detection device that is tailored to the limited individual’s head that was the inspiration of this project

The team’s biggest hurdle to get over after phase one was developing a headset that was comfortable enough for our subject to wear and was such that it was easy to get a consistent and accurate EEG reading.

The team is currently in the process of producing the new design. 

Note: We will be presenting our work at IBM Think 2018 which is being hosted in Las Vegas between the dates of March 18th - 23rd, 2018.
