A Treatment for Blindness? NHS to Install Bionic Eyes in 10 Patients

#artificialintelligence

The National Eye Institute estimates that one in 4,000 people around the world suffer from the disorder. The Argus II Bionic Eye implant works in tandem with a small camera mounted on a pair of glasses that is worn by the patient. Half of the patients receiving the implant will be treated at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, while the remaining half will have the procedure at Moorfields Eye Hospital in 2017. Among those, around 160 to 320 are possibly eligible for a bionic eye procedure.


The Future of Artificial Intelligence and Cybernetics

For example, if the robot brain has roughly the same number of human neurons as a typical human brain, then could it, or should it, have rights similar to those of a person? Also, if such robots have far more human neurons than in a typical human brain--for example, a million times more neurons--would they, rather than humans, make all future decisions? With those cases, the situation isn't straightforward, as patients receive abilities that normal humans don't have--for example, the ability to move a cursor on a computer screen using nothing but neural signals. It's clear that connecting a human brain with a computer network via an implant could, in the long term, open up the distinct advantages of machine intelligence, communication, and sensing abilities to the individual receiving the implant.

A Hardware Update for the Human Brain

Wall Street Journal

Today, thanks to a combination of her implant, surgery and medication, Borghard, 27, experiences an average of just two seizures a month. Neural implants like Emily Borghard's can stimulate and record from just a handful of neurons. Implant accommodation is the goal of Longeviti Neuro Solutions, a startup founded by Chad Gordon, a plastic surgeon at Johns Hopkins, and Jesse Christopher, a veteran of medical-device companies. In an experiment conducted at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, scientists used an implant to create a wireless connection between a monkey's brain and a battery-powered stimulator in its paralyzed leg, allowing the monkey to walk again.


Zachary Mason uses his Skills as an AI Expert in New Novel

On its shiny, high-tech surface, Void Star doesn't seem to have much in common with the early 20th-century modernism of Virginia Woolf. While there is plenty of globe-trotting action in Void Star, that aspect of the narrative isn't necessarily its primary objective. And that's a lot of what I was trying to do with Void Star." The book's connection to William Gibson and his first novel, Neuromancer, will likely be obvious to anyone who grew up reading what was once called "cyberpunk," stories set where the barriers between the human and the digital worlds are more permeable.


Cochlear is switching to artificial intelligence for its implants

Business Insider Australia is the Australian edition of the world's fastest-growing business news website, Business Insider. Australia's pioneering bionic ear company, Cochlear, plans to use artificial intelligence to more accurately implant and calibrate its devices. Cochlear today announced an exclusive licensing and development agreement with Otoconsult for its artificial intelligence fitting assistant FOX (Fitting to Outcomes eXpert). "FOX's artificial intelligence assistant will provide clinicians, no matter where they are in the world, a platform to speed up the cochlear implant fitting process while also helping them achieve the best possible patient outcome," says Cochlear CEO Chris Smith.

Brain Implant Allows Man to Feel Touch on Robotic Hand

#artificialintelligence

Researchers report today in the journal Science Translational Medicine that they can do something similar: stimulating regions of a human test subject's brain with electrodes can recreate the perception of touch in a robotic hand. In several experiments where scientists electrically stimulated human brains, such as 2013 research in the Journal of Neural Engineering, participants reported sensations that felt like they were coming from the hands, but described the feelings a more of a buzzing or the tingling sensation, like when your foot falls asleep. The core of the system consisted of two neural implants: 2.4 mm by 4 mm microelectrode arrays with 60 electrodes. The researchers began the experiment by tracking the magnetic fields coming from the brain's neurons when the test subject, Nathan Copeland, imagined something touching different parts of his hand.
