Samsung has launched a new Android app called ‘Look At Me’ to help children with autism to make better eye contact and improve their facial recognition abilities through digital devices like smartphones or smart cameras. It was developed by doctors and professors from Seoul National University and Yonsei University Department of Psychology.
The newly launched app uses photos, facial recognition technology and a series of games to help kids to express their emotions and communicate with other people. In a clinical trail, the app was tested by the team with 20 children for 8 weeks and claim that 60 percent of them showed improvement in making eye contact.
