Scientists consider climate change-resistant crops

Wheelchairs are used by people who cannot get around normally, like walking. It can also be used by those who are severely paralyzed. Now in the past we have seen some research done where our brains could be harnessed and used to control a wheelchair, and now it seems that Intel and Brazil-based Hoobox Robotics are turning to the use of AI.Working together in a partnership, they have developed a system called Wheelie 7. This is a kit that takes advantage of AI where it will allow the user of the wheelchair to control it using nothing more than their facial expressions. Users can define which facial expressions they want to use to control the wheelchair, which is where the use of AI comes in where it will use algorithms to process data in real-time to direct the movement of the wheelchair.These facial expressions will be caught/registered using Intelís 3D RealSense Depth Camera which will be mounted on the front. It is also said to be capable of capturing and recognizing facial expressions in both sunlight an
