Implantable computer chip could spot seizures before they start

Researchers from the University of Melbourne have teamed with IBM to develop an implantable computer chip capable of constantly monitoring the patient’s brain activity and, hopefully, predict when they’ll suffer an epileptic seizure. The chip is based on IBM’s TrueNorth technology and uses a neural network architecture — similar to the deep learning AIs that Facebook and Google have been toying with.
