University of Queensland student Nat Marshall is developing a wearable device that will control robotic prosthetics with artificial intelligence (AI).

The engineering and physics major wants to smooth out the current user experience for people with upper-limb difference. 

AI refers to a computer that can imitate a human mind by learning from experience and practice to recognise objects, solve problems or make decisions.
