MAIA: AI platform for assistance devices

13 July 2022

"We met the MAIA project consortium to move forward in the development of an AI platform to improve the control of prostheses for rehabilitation."

MAIA is developing a human-centred multifunctional artificial intelligence controller with reliable features to be integrated into robotic arms, wheelchairs and exoskeletons

On 21st and 22nd June, health experts welcomed the partners of the MAIA “Multifunctional, adaptive and interactive AI system for Acting in Multiple contexts ” European initiative at TECNALIA’s facilities in Miramón.

TECNALIA had the opportunity to present the portfolio of projects and demonstrations of assets aligned with MAIA to the consortium in order to find synergies and potential future collaborations with the partners.

MAIA seeks to develop an artificial intelligence platform that allows adaptive sensorimotor control by improving prosthesis control from neural and behavioural signals, making it more natural and skilled.
