NB-born bionics expert “rewires” humans with thought-controlled prosthetics

SAINT JOHN, N.B. – An expert trained at the University of New Brunswick says prosthetics powered by artificial intelligence are no longer the stuff of science fiction — thought-controlled bionic limbs have already arrived and are getting more sophisticated by the day. Levi Hargrove, director of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and UNB graduate, will return to his alma matter next week to deliver a lecture on “rewiring humans” who have lost limbs using state-of-the-art artificial prosthetics controlled by the power of the mind. “We’ve made a lot of improvements in their control and functionality partly by actually doing innovative surgeries … (and) using artificial intelligence to figure out how to put that information to work so that people can move arms and legs just by thinking about it,” Hargrove…
