Microsoft supports development of epilepsy prediction device

Named NeuroSyd, the device will be designed to act as a seizure warning system via real-time monitoring and processing of brain-signals that indicate an epileptic seizure.

Primarily intended to help adult epilepsy patients while driving, the device will provide an early warning of the possibility of an epileptic seizure strike. This is expected to facilitate measures to potentially avoid consequences that come with an unpredictable seizure.
