  • Research Achievement

The Intelligent Interactive Assistant Learning Software Development for Autistic Children:

This project mainly includes the following steps: the design and accomplishment of intelligent learning games, field tests, data collection (the need and feedback from users), data analysis and software improvement. We use Microsoft Visual C# for game development on Windows 10 platform. All game elements in this project are designed based on the needs of autistic children. This software will provide multiple game elements and game mechanics to allow autistic children to choose the jigsaw puzzles they like. Based on usage patterns of autistic children, the system can automatically adjust the level of difficulty, game elements and game feedback (sound or image symbols).
