Designing a prosthetic that reads the electrical signals produced from the residual limb of the amputee and through an AI system, which then decides what gesture the amputee is trying to make. It then sends a command to a robotic hand to perform that gesture.
LITTLE BIG PARTNERS
“The impact of The Little Big Fund has made a profound difference in Watson Institute's program, the social impact initiatives and ventures the scholars are building, and their life trajectories both during and after Watson Institute. The seed funding and process of The Little Big Fund has proven to be catalytic for both the scholars who receive funding and those who don't. We consistently see the impact on scholars who with the support of The Little Big Fund leap into their passions, develop their solutions, and launch lives of impact.”
Eric Glustrom, CEO & Founder of Watson Institute
