WASHINGTON - Researchers are using Google Glass to help those with autism recognize basic facial emotions.
The Autism Project at Stanford University Medicine is using the technology paired with a smartphone app to help children with autism identify emotions.
The researchers at Stanford University have developed a system using machine learning and artificial intelligence that delivers real-time social cues. With the technology, those wearing Google Glass will be cued to when someone is feeling happy, angry, sad and a range of other human emotions.
There is still more research that needs to be done and Stanford University is looking for participants nationwide. To learn more about The Autism Project at Stanford Medicine and about the requirements to participate in the program, click here.
