Investigation of Mechanisms of Action in Superpower Glass

Trial ID or NCT#



not recruiting iconNOT RECRUITING


The following study aims to understand the mechanism of action at work in a novel artificial intelligence (AI) tool that runs on Google Glass through an Android app to deliver social emotion cues to children with autism during social interactions. This study will examine 2 versions of software on the Google Glass based wearable intervention system. Participants will receive 1 of 2 versions of the software and use the device at home for 4 weeks. This novel device will use a camera, microphone, head motion tracker to analyze the behavior of the subject during interactions with other people. The system is designed to give participants non-interruptive social cues in real-time and will record social responses that can later be used to help aid behavioral therapy. It is hypothesized that both mechanisms under investigation will contribute to social gains in children over the 4 week period of use.
