About this event

hack autism

** www.bingfund.com/autism**

March 22nd - 24th

 

 

Autism is a neural development disorder that afflicts millions of lives and is particularly pervasive amongst Northwest-area families. Existing tools and solutions for families and institutions coping with autism are lacking. Adoption of evolving technologies to support new functional scenarios is sorely needed throughout the lifetime of an individual with autism.

 

WHERE


 

Husky Union Building (North Ballroom)

Seattle, WA

 

 

SPECIAL GUESTS


 

Wendy Stone, PhD, UW Autism Center

Raphael Bernier, PhD, UW Autism Center

Dr. Gary Stobbe, Seattle Children’s Hospital Karen Kaizuka, Seattle Children’s Autism Guild

Dan Feshbach, Chairman, Teachtown

WHAT


 

Sequential learning aimed at increasing independence for critical everyday tasks at home and school. Designing an application based on one of three use-case scenarios below to leverage new technologies to support a functional model to complete the given task. The underlying application framework should be exposed through a set of services to empower manipulation of the application to adapt to future services.

 

Age 3-5 This scenario will involve designing and delivering instructional & motivational content that the child finds engaging and rewarding. The content itself will be dynamic and will be expected to evolve with usage to keep the child engaged and well positioned to learn new tasks.

 

Age 5-12 This scenario will revolve around basic tasks related to getting ready for going and coming back from school. It should facilitate parent and school-driven customizations based on each child’s unique circumstances.

 

Age 12-20 This scenario will revolve around critical skills necessary to utilize public transit for a young adult to transport him/herself to and from a destination. It should facilitate multiple modes of transit, integration with real-time transit data, geo- awareness of the young adult (via mobile/tablet) and capitalize on other data available with respect to his/her surroundings.

OUTCOME

 

The hack-a-thon will be expected to generate a collection of prototypes. These prototypes will be judged by a panel of subject-matter-experts and parents. Winners will be awarded TBD. The winning Intellectual Property will be contributed to the open market for monetization and/or further development/research.
