For several years, DARPA has invested in advanced prosthetics and control systems to restore quality of life for people living with paralysis or loss of an upper limb. Neurotechnology solutions now enable direct neural control of the motor functions of prosthetic arms and hands, as well as sensory feedback to the user’s brain. These capabilities depend on rapid AI-mediated transduction of signals acquired directly from the brain into control commands for intelligent prosthetics. This talk will discuss these approaches explored in neuroprosthetics, and the opportunities for improving performance through the integration of intelligent systems and advanced capabilities in AI.
