IBM partners with micro-cap Bionik for machine learning algorithms in robotic exoskeleton

Several companies are working on robotic exoskeletons to enable more mobility for paraplegics, but few have focused on the data that could be generated from them. Now IBM has partnered with microcap robotic exoskeleton player Bionik Laboratories to do just that. It will apply its machine-learning algorithms in an effort to analyze data to improve the outcomes of neurological rehabilitation. Arke robotic exoskeleton–Courtesy of Biotronik “This collaboration is the genesis of a meeting nearly a year ago where we discussed the universal importance of big data,” said Bionik co-founder and COO Michal Prywata in a statement. “During our follow-on conversations we began to realize synergies and started to discuss potential ways in which we could work together to develop an intelligent analytics platform for Arke.” To do that, the partners…
