The Dallas Morning News Story Highlights:
- Darwin Ecosystem uses machine-learning to predict trends in the financial markets, analyze essays for police academies to determine if trainees would be a good fit and work with human resources departments to identify traits of top performers.
- Darwin Ecosystem is working on its most ambitious project yet! The team is developing a system that tracks brainwaves, recognizes patterns and interprets the intentions behind them. It could unlock communication for adults and children who are unable to speak.
- Here is how the system works. The person who cannot communicate wears a wireless headgear that’s an electroencephalography (or EEG) device. It tracks brain patterns for periods of time. An interpreter helps detect the individual’s expressions, movements and social cues. A mobile app monitors and tracks observations to help make meaning of brainwave patterns.
- A software helps detect patterns to start predicting the person’s thinking or eventually, speak on behalf of him or her.
