This project aims to ensure that the dignity of a Parkinson's patient is maintained during interactions with caregivers using a robot as a co-mediator. The mediator will hold a mental representation of the patient's and caregiver's emotional state and react accordingly. The co-mediator will express the patient's internal emotional state through spatial and emotive gestures.
Our goal is to improve the speech perception of individuals with mild cognitive impairment in a therapeutic facility through the design of the sound environment. Discerning speech is complex task that is an interplay between the receiver's cognitive and physical abilities and the quality of the sound signal. By understanding the unique difficulties that individuals with MCI face in discerning speech, we aim to design technologies embedded in the physical environment to improve the quality of the speech signal in the space.
Parents have an important role in improving their children's educational experience by providing them with learning opportunities Free online informal learning resources are available more than ever; however, research shows that people who may need these resources the most are not able to find them. In this study, we go beyond a binary definition of access to examine technology practices and level of access to information technologies among African-American parents in financially depressed communities in Westside Atlanta.
