Project

EngageME

Machine Learning and Humanoid Robots for Measuring Engagement of Children with Autism

EngageME is a project aimed at building a new technology that can better engage children with ASC (Autism Spectrum Conditions) in communication-centered activities. 

In this context, EngageME investigates the use of humanoid robots such as NAO. To facilitate the children's engagement during their interaction with NAO, EngageME explores multi-modal behavioral cues (facial expressions, head pose, audio, and physiology) to realize a fully automated context-sensitive estimation of engagement. 

This technology builds upon state-of-the-art machine learning, bringing novel personalized and culture-tailored models for engagement measurement.
