Talk Title: Enabling Progress Through Technology for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

At a very high level the intention of the session is to “fire the imagination” of the attendees in regard to Autism Spectrum Disorder. The IEEE IoT Conference should contain a balance of academic, research and industry focused attendees – and the purpose of this session is to help inspire and provoke the audience to invent, refine and develop technology to help the people who live with ASD on a daily basis. It will include a “call to action” to conclude with a specific ask of attendees. The session will begin with a high-level introduction on ASD, and then move into an overview of the main areas that face people who have or live with an ASD diagnosis; • Diagnosis • Sensory Challenges • Communication & Social Skills • Training & Awareness • Therapy From there it will move into the technology conversation. Core topics will include • IoT and Edge Solutions • VR/AR • Analytics/Machine Learning The technology conversation will not be a “deep dive” and is intended to provoke thought and debate. The pros and cons of all suggested technologies will be discussed and there will be zero “product placement” To conclude the session I will issue a call to action to attending students, researchers and industry leaders and entrepreneurs to consider how they can positively impact society by working on solutions to help people with ASD. The session can be delivered via Powerpoint, under 1 hour. As an additional suggestion – we can also add a panel discussion post presentation, with 3-4 panel attendees 1) Jeff McCann, Dell Technologies (Industry) 2) Sean McGrath, UL (Academic) 3) AN Other (Working in ASD) West Limerick Resources/St. Gabriels/TBC 4) AN Other (Life Sciences – Academic) The Panel discussion can be pre- wired with a conversation based on talking points or an open Q&A with audience.
