Artificial intelligence opens the door of hope for people with disabilities

Artificial intelligence gives people with disabilities hope for a radical change in their lives, as it allows them greater independence through development in the field of image recognition, and also enables them to partially restore functions they have lost, such as speaking or walking.

Thanks to intelligence, a person with paralysis in the vertebrae of his neck was able, for the first time, to naturally regain control of walking through thinking, after merging two technologies that restore the connection between the brain and the spinal cord.

Restoration of independence

Billionaire Elon Musk’s company, Neuralink, set out to restore independence to paralyzed people with brain implants, before connecting the human brain to machines. Where the US health authorities agreed to conduct the first tests in humans.

Consumer products such as smartphones are turning into daily crutches thanks to artificial intelligence technology, while iPhone and Android devices have applications to identify people and describe objects in their surroundings, and carry a statement that the phone holder, for example, finds the nearest door to it or the microwave button.

The “Apple” company also made available the “Live Speech” feature, which allows a person to express himself in writing during phone or video conversations, with a transcript of what he says in audio, which appears on the other end of the call.

Generative intelligence

“They are currently promoting generative artificial intelligence, which holds a lot of promise related to the issue of availability,” specifically with regard to cognitive disorders, explained Director of Product Availability at Google, Eve Anderson.

She added that one of the goals in reaching solutions that help people with dyslexia is automated text summaries or suggestions for responses to e-mail messages.

Query visibility

The artificial intelligence program created by Google DeepMind allowed the vision-enabled Lookout application to query the content of any image from its device.

For example, the Seeing AI application from Microsoft allows the user to “detect the content of an image with his fingers, which is an interesting issue when sharing an image via a WhatsApp group.

French startup Sonar Vision has also created technology to guide visually impaired people in certain cities.

The head of the Product Availability Department at the Valentine High Association confirmed that the solutions proposed by artificial intelligence will provide great independence for the blind and those with vision problems.
