Stanford University proposed the use of smart glasses for children with a diagnosis of autism, in which there are problems with socialization. Such a disease manifests itself in early childhood, as a disruption in the functioning of the nervous system. Autists have problems interacting with people, focusing on a specific subject, and repeating the same movements. The physiological side also suffers: speech and memory practically do not develop, new skills are not being fixed. The project of scientists Kathleen Foss and Nick Haber called Autism Glass Project combines face recognition technology and machine learning. The bottom line is that with the help of smart glasses, an autistic can recognize and determine the emotions of the interlocutor. Psychologists note that such a hint contributes to their better socialization. Google Glass found application in the treatment of autism 14 children with a diagnosis of autism participated in the experiments. They were ordered to wear special Google Glass and 12 families felt the effect of this practice. Relatives noted that the children began to make eye contact better and even started conducting simple dialogues, which was not previously observed. In the near future, scientists and developers plan to conduct a larger study and determine whether Google Glass glasses can really help in the treatment of autism.
