Paralyzed Stroke Victims Speak Again Through App
I.am.here app gives stroke victims who've lost the power to speak a renewed voice
I.am.here is a mobile app that analyzes brain activity of stroke victims to give paralyzed people a way to communicate with their loved ones. The software uses Brain Computer Interface (BCI) to transform raw brain signals into human emotions, which are then displayed as words through the mobile app. The app shows visualizations of the paralyzed person’s state of mind such as: “I’m interested. I’m happy. I’m angry.”
The app was created in a partnership between Russian digital communications agency AdWatch Isobar, Russian stroke foundation ORBi, and mobile software developers Yarr!.
