The team from UET, mentored by Dr. Mohammad Usman Ghani Khan with Shoaib Shabbir, Arooj Zaib, and Umer Lodhi as members created a robot for analyzing and improving the social interaction of autistic individuals. By automating the process of speech therapy for autistic children, they designed a syllabus of words that the robot was taught so it could evaluate the child’s response. With little to no awareness of autism in Pakistan, their project was truly a much-needed innovation in today’s world. The amazing creation by this Pakistani team from UET ended up winning the second prize in the Huawei ICT Competition!
