Intel Corp. is looking for ways to help famed British physicist Stephen Hawking reverse the slowing of his speech, according to a senior executive with the American chipmaker.
A solar cell the size of a stamp. That's all Intel Corp. researchers needed to power a computer processor that could hold a tantalizing vision for the low-power chips of the future.
But Rattner said his best bet was on high definition cameras that pick up on the minute movements in Hawking's face to synthesize his speech.
Speaking late Sunday on the sidelines of a conference celebrating Hawking's 70th birthday in the English city of Cambridge, Intel Chief Technology Officer Justin Rattner said his company had a team in England to explore ways to help the celebrity scientist communicate more quickly.
