Intel releases Stephen Hawking’s speech software online

 

LONDON: A software by Intel that lets physicist Stephen Hawking communicate via a computer has been published online by the company in the hopes that it will be used by researchers developing new interfaces for sufferers of diseases like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

The programme interprets visual signals and translates them into words, which are then “spoken” by a machine.

Intel originally developed the technology specially for Hawking but it has been used by other sufferers of motor neurone disease (MND).
