Indian-origin teenager helps disabled woman communicate through artificial intelligence

Tanmay Bakshi, a 13-year-old teenager based in Canada, is helping a disabled woman communicate through artificial intelligence.

Tanmay created his first app for learning timetables for Apple when he was just nine years old.

Since then, he has developed a cyber security app and a scam detection software for websites.

His latest project is called The Cognitive Story, and it is helping a disabled Canadian woman communicate through a network technology that is modelled on her brain and nervous system.

Tanmay says that it will give her the chance to be no longer be locked inside her own body.

The software he is developing can be used by anyone and is open to feedback and ideas online.

Tanmay believes that artificial intelligence is something that people should not be scared of, and that it could be used to help people.
