PROJECT: Digital Personal Assistant for people with autism

Autism : Digital : Personal : Assistant :

About the project:
Virtual assistants like Alexa or Google Home can help people with special needs by answering questions or can even be programmed to remind them of certain tasks daily. Develop an open source special version of an existing digital assistant that is specifically programmed for people with autism.

The Problem:
Digital Personal Assistants like Amazon's Echo or Google Home are becoming mainstream. People with autism have certain needs whether to be reminded of certain tasks daily or playing specific music when requested from a genre that are not met with the commercially available versions.

The Solution:
Develop/modify an existing digital personal assistant that is specifically tailored to users who have autism. The goal is to improve the lives of people with autism by giving them access to a digital personal assistant 24/7 specifically modified for their needs.
