“UW’s Yoky Matsuoka is leading the quest for robotics that take orders from the brain”

The Seattle Times profiles UW CSE professor Yoky Matsuoka in Pacific Northwest magazine.

“At the University of Washington, MacArthur ‘genius’ award-winner Yoky Matsuoka is leading the effort to build robotic hands and other devices that will take commands directly from the human brain — and revolutionizing the opportunities for people with disabilities to function more fully.”
