Slide 30: Google Glass Visual, Hearing, Cognitive, Emotional Assistive Tech

(Take me to the beginning of these slides, from my Society for Health Systems Healthcare Systems Process Improvement Conference presentation on Google Glass and health IT workflow, immediately before HIMSS14. Text accompanying slides is colloquial because it was transcribed from audio recording.)


Relative to assistive tech, I’ve broken it into four categories: Vision, Hearing, Cognition, and Emotion. Blind or low-vision folks may use Glass to recognize objects. Deaf may use Glass to transcribe conversation. Facial recognition and emotion detection programs may give little nudges to the forgetful. I can even imagine Glass apps that monitor excitability and emotional state and pop in no and again with a suggestion or offer or relevant action.
