The writer of the bestseller the Brief History of Time Cosmology, director of the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology and most famous theoretical physicist and cosmologist of the century was the first person to explain the theory of cosmology through relativity and quantum mechanics. He was born in Oxford and he is 75 years old.
In 2014, the actor Eddie Redmayne went to the laboratories of Intel to learn about the technology that helps Hawking to communicate, in order to interpret Hawking in a film called Theory of Everything. If you are wondering how does Stephen Hawking communicate, the new system used by the cosmologist is called Assistive Context Aware Toolkit and it was created by a team of expert scientists for people to communicate through keyboard simulation, speech synthesis and prediction.
In recent statements, Hawking declared that this new system is very important and it was designed to improve the life of those people who struggle to communicate. He declared that he has worked along with Intel for 25 years and that they have always supported him, and it is also because of their great efforts that he is able to do what he loves everyday. ACAT can be use in different languages like English, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
