QTrobot: therapists’ little helper, autistic kids’ big friend.

Support the mental health of kids

It is estimated that worldwide one in 160 children has an Autism spectrum disorder and that one in 68 is diagnosed with autism itself. This estimate represents an average figure, and reported prevalence varies substantially across studies. Some well-controlled studies have, however, reported figures that are substantially higher.

The healthcare needs of people with autism are complex and require a range of integrated services, including health promotion, care, rehabilitation services, and collaboration with other sectors such as the education, employment and social sectors. Autism may significantly limit the capacity of an individual to conduct daily activities and participate in society. It often negatively influences the person’s educational and social attainments as well as employment opportunities.

How can we help children with autism develop skills?

LuxAI is an innovative startup specialised in disruptive robotic solutions for education and health-care. Their solution is QT, a humanoid robot that has the size of a four year old child. QT is capable of generating a wide variety of facial expressions, body gestures and behaviours to engage people in social interactions. The disruptive AI-based software technology allows you to instantly learn how to use our robots and create new robot applications to meet the unique needs of each individual and application.

With an inspiring event in the Knights’ Hall in The Hague on 24 April, we kicked off the joint development of shared purposes to take on global challenges. Do you think that the solution of LuxAI can actively contribute to our shared purpose of improving children's metal health and help learning children with autism the skills and interaction they need?

Then let us know how we can try to help LuxAI reach that goal and if you can be a part of that development. Share this post and your thoughts using the hashtag #IdeasfromEU, tweet us or visit our website: ideasfrom.eu
