One of the most promising uses for robotics and artificial intelligence is in assisting people with serious injuries and chronic conditions. Researchers at the Neuro-Biomorphic Engineering Lab at the Open University of Israel are developing a wheelchair-mounted robotic arm to assist patients with spinal injuries in performing daily tasks. The project will use funding and technology from Accenture PLC, as well as Intel Corp.’s neuromorphic technology and Applied Brain Research Inc.’s algorithmic support.
