Today SwiftKey joined Intel and Professor Hawking on stage in London to talk about this work. Professor Hawking has motor neurone disease and as such is only able to communicate by using a small sensor which is activated by a muscle in his cheek. He uses this sensor to 'type' characters and numbers on his keyboard.Dec 2, 2014
