The Autism Glass Project uses Google Glass, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to recognize the faces of other people, and provide real-time feedback on their facial expressions. Recognizing facial expressions, understanding social interactions, and making eye contact often require many hours of behavioral therapy and can be extremely challenging for individuals with autism.
The Wall Lab at the Stanford School of Medicine is behind the Autism Glass Project, which involves building a system on top of Google Glass to help people with ASD understand social cues and aid the treatment process of behavioral therapy. According to Dennis Wall, an associate professor in pediatrics at Stanford, who leads the Wall Lab, the goal of the device is “to empower people with autism or families who are struggling with autism with digital devices and solutions they can take home with them and leverage on their own, in a way that’s intuitive and fits within their natural environment.”
