Amazon AI to Restore Recognition to Memory Loss Patients
Veteran software engineer Sachin Solkhan recently revealed that he was able to build a system that records user experiences to enable recognition using Amazon’s DeepLens.
DeepLens, which is the Amazon counterpart of Google’s Clips “smart” camera, is a developer-focused artificial intelligence technology that makes it easier for the camera to do things like recognize objects or characters that appear in a video stream.
Solkhan says DeepLens system may be able to help memory loss patients by storing photographs and names of their friends and family in Amazon’s cloud service. The camera would then record interactions which the AI would learn to recognize the person and issue a verbal prompt.
