Finalists Announced for the ALS Assistive Technology Challenge

Five finalists have been selected for the ALS Assistive Technology Challenge, a competition for the development of innovative technologies that enable people with ALS to communicate with ease, thus improving their quality of life. The finalists include a team developing an auto-positioning system for eye gaze-controlled speech devices, an application that facilitates voice message banking, a brain-computer interface (BCI) with increased speed and reliability, a communication system for people with little to no movement ability, and a sophisticated speech generation device. The winner of the $400,000 award, sponsored by The ALS Association and Prize4Life, will be selected at the International Symposium on ALS/MND.
