Robots Continue Their Work with Children with Autism

Posted: Friday, July 16, 2010 - 10:00


We have written news stories in the past about the use of robots to teach and interact with children with autism. Robots are becoming even more prevalent in teaching situations. For example, not only are they being used to help children with autism, but in some countries, robots are teaching academics to children.

A youngster with autism in California has been paired with a robot to help him with basic social skills. The robot helps the boy maintain eye contact, and imitate movements. Computer scientists are working with artificial intelligence and machines to make robots that are “highly programmed machines that can engage people and teach them simple skills, including household tasks, vocabulary or, as in the case of the boy, playing, elementary imitation and taking turns.”
