724: Decoding Speech from Raw Brain Activity, with Dr. David Moses

Super Data Science: ML & AI Podcast with Jon Krohn

Oct 20 2023 • 42 mins

In this Friday episode, host Jon Krohn talks to UCSF’s David Moses about BRAVO (Brain-Computer Interface Restoration of Arm and Voice), a study led by Edward Chang and Karunesh Ganguly that helps patients who have lost the ability to speak to communicate once again via a speech neuroprosthesis. Postdoctoral engineer David Moses, who is a part of BRAVO, reveals the data and machine learning models that help BRAVO predict the words and facial expressions that a paralyzed patient is trying to form via their brain activity, crucially helping patients to communicate with medical practitioners and loved ones.
