Emotional Social Intelligence Prosthesis

ESP Device

Many people diagnosed with autism have difficulties with social situations and processes, including communication. This can cause significant problems to the person’s ability to function appropriately in traditional educational and workplace environments. The Emotional Social Intelligence Prosthesis (ESP) project, from MIT’s Media Lab, is seeking to find new ways with which technology can be used as an assistive and therapuetic device to foster learning and improve social interaction, communication and emotion reading and understanding abilities in people with autism.
