Robots and Autism

>> Thursday, February 19, 2009

One day robots will help autistic children with their social skills one day according to this article out of Nashville, TN. For sometime now robots have been used to treat people with autism to do many things. The only problem they have now would be that they had no way of monitoring the emotional state of the child and be able to respond. Quite a task if you ask me. The research was made possible by a grant from the Marino Autism Reasearch Institute, and two papers, the results of the study, will be published in IEEE Transactions on Robotics and the International Journal of Human -Computer Science. I hope that you will enjoy reading the article. There is another one here as well. Robots helping our children react to the world.
