SwiftKey helps Stephen Hawking
Professor Stephen Hawking is the world smartest man in the 21st century world who is famous for his black holes theories. He was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) at the age of 21 years while he was studying cosmology at the University of Cambridge. Professor Stephen Hawking had to use a communication device controlled my his cheek for many years. The team from SwiftKey, a well known keyboard app are helping Professor Hawking by accommodating their software into his system to type faster.
SwiftKey is a very popular third-party keyboard app that is known for its text and prediction, with swiping ability and some colorful themes. That is why the team from SwiftKey seeks to make their text input as easy as possible to help Professor Hawking’s life a bit easier.
Usually, when Professor Hawking writes a long lectures, notes or books, it takes a long time to input letters and numbers individually. That’s where SwiftKey comes in to combine text and phrase prediction into Professor Hawking typing system. SwiftKey has also built a personal “language model” for the professor based on his wide-ranged use of words. In other words, Professor Hawking is able to write more quickly, precisely and with less effort.
SwiftKey’s SDK team leader, Joe Osborne mentioned that, “It has been a wonderful experience to work so closely with Professor Hawking and his team on this project, integrating our technology into his communications system. SwiftKey’s predictive technology learns from each individual user, gaining insights from their personal language style.”
SwiftKey is not all about keyboard and prediction, but it focus on a big picture of text prediction. If any users are interested in SwiftKey, head over to Play Store and grab your ultimate keyboard app.
