Another example of HSC-related applications of digital technology:
'Researchers, in a collaboration between the Institute of Child Development, the University of Minnesota Medical School and the College of Science and Engineering, are exploring the use of technology to diagnose children who show symptoms of an array of mental disorders including obsessive-compulsive disorder and attention deficit disorder. Developed at the University’s Center for Distributed Robotics, the video monitoring system is comprised of several Kinect cameras stationed around a small room that take footage of a child playing with toys without intrusion. The Kinect video feed is then sorted into data by open-sourced software, tweaked to the demands of researchers and then presented to doctors.'
