A hospital in Tel Aviv will be using groundbreaking AI techniques to treat neurological disorders and disabilities, reports No Camels.

According to the report, Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center forged a partnership with Israeli AI company NeuroBrave on Thursday to propel its revolutionary brain-computer interface (BCI) technology forward. A BCI, also known as a “brain chip” is a direct communication link that allows the brain’s electrical signals to control external devices like computers or robotic limbs, essentially merging the human brain with artificial intelligence systems.

“For over a decade, our clinical team has spearheaded speech decoding and brain data research, amassing invaluable expertise,” said Dr. Ido Strauss, head of the hospital’s Functional Neurosurgery Unit at Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center. “This partnership with NeuroBrave opens exciting possibilities to translate brain activity into speech and help patients with brain disorders communicate.”

NeuroBrave  CEO Dror Talisman highlighted the potential of its brain chip, claiming it can “interpret and translate neural information into cognitive and emotional data streams in real-time.” As a result, this AI technology could significantly restore functionality for patients affected by strokes, paralysis, neurodegenerative diseases, and other neurological conditions.

Israel now joins the United States in its race to mesh AI technology with the human brain. In January, Billionaire Elon Musk’s company Neuralink announced it had successfully implanted its brain chip into a human being.
