Submission + - Intel to Help Stephen Hawking Communicate Faster (paritynews.com)

hypnosec writes: Stephen Hawking’s ability to communicate has been deteriorating over the years and as it stands, the physicist is able to only communicate at the rate of 1 word per minute currently which is about to change as Intel is working on an interface that will boost the scientist’s speech to up to 10 words per minute. Intel CTO Justin Rattner has revealed that they are working towards improving the speed at which Hawking communicates and beyond the twitch in the cheek, Hawking is also capable of other voluntary facial expressions which can be tapped to achieve faster communications for which they are developing a better character interface with a better word predictor.
