Peter Scott Morgan is a scientist and roboticist. He also has advanced Motor Neuron Disease, which is similar to ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, and is losing control of his body. Lama Nachman, the Intel scientist who built Stephen Hawking’s communication system is updating it, adding more artificial intelligence to it, and helping him not just communicate, but also control his entire world. In addition, she’s open sourcing it and planning to make it available and inexpensive for tens of thousands like him.
Increased independence, capability, and empowerment for those who are losing control of the one thing we all own: our very own bodies.
