Autism Glass Project

The Autism Glass Project was founded by Stanford scholars and researchers Catalin Voss and Dr. Nick Haber, with a mission to leverage their expertise in computer science and machine learning for a cause close to their hearts: improving the lives of people with autism and others who experience difficulty with social functioning. Under the guidance of Principal Investigators and Stanford faculty Dr. Dennis Wall, Dr. Terry Winograd and Dr. Carl Feinstein, and with a generous donation of Google Glass units from Google, the Autism Glass Project founders have begun to realize their vision.   Based out of the Wall Lab in the Systems Medicine division of the Stanford School of Medicine Pediatrics department, the Autism Glass Project seeks to provide individuals with challenges navigating social cues with a clinically validated therapeutic device to aid in interpreting facial expressions.
