Social Robots Improving the Lives of People with Autism

Enter the social robota companion robot designed to help adults with autism navigate the social river of the workplace. The robot companion will tell essentially translate for people with autism whether or not there is sarcasm or an implied meaning, whether the person they met appears to like them or not, whether an instruction was literal or a joke, what the emotions on someone’s face convey. The idea is that this will benefit them in the workplace, but could go further into the outside world.
