Autism Solutions robot to help kids with autism focus better
Six-year-old Shriya Sreeju presented the Pepper Robot- powered Autism Solutions robot at a technology conference in San Francisco.
She explained the way the robot works. For example, if a kid with autism shows a right flash card to the robot, the robot will do a happy dance or show a smiley on screen.
Her dad, Sreejumon Purayil, had built the software and she helped design how the bot should work.The initiative is to help autistic children build a better concept of emotions and learn to focus better.
