There are at least four areas where Livox differentiates itself:
- Intelligent Algorithms: Livox has several different algorithms that makes it adjust itself according to every disability. For example, Livox has an algorithm called IntelliTouch. This algorithm corrects the imperfect touch of people with motor disabilities allowing them to use the software. Livox also has an algorithm that enables people who can't control their limbs to use Livox with their eyes. These algorithms ensure that regardless of the user disability type and degree, they will be able to either communicate or to access the content stored in Livox. Livox has algorithms for motor, cognitive and visual impairments. In Livox it's possible to have multiple users on a single tablet. So teachers and professionals can have different profiles for each person using Livox. Livox will be different for each one of them.
- Management: We have a portal (www.mylivox.com) where managers can track improvements of users using Livox and also see lots of data associated with them. We track five different categories for each Livox user: Behavior, Cognitive, Auditory, Visual and Oral Language. For each of these categories we have a score and we also have an overall score. So, let's say a student starts to use Livox today. He does an evaluation and he has an overall score, let's say, 60%. By analyzing this score one can see that this student has a Cognitive score of 20%. So, in order to improve the overall score of this student, a teacher or professional may decide to work with cognitive activities. It's also possible to have a lot of statistics like, user usage, user behavior, most used items, etc. We are finalizing a new area in our portal with contents and resources for families, professionals and caregivers. So, let's say a teacher just receives a new student with Autism. This teacher may go to our portal and download content relevant for an autistic user. A mayor, a director of a network of hospitals or anyone with administrative role can have an overlook of users and then drill-down to any specific facility, then professional, then user.
- Educational Content: It's possible to adapt any educational (Sciences, Math, Languages, etc) content into Livox. So, besides allowing non-verbal people with disabilities to SPEAK, Livox also allows them to learn. The best is that, regardless of the user disability type and degree, you can be sure that they will be able to access these contents due to Livox's intelligent algorithms. When you have more than one tablet with Livox together, they communicate to each other. So a teacher or professional may create a content and transfer this content to the student's tablet so they can continue working on it when at home.
- Artificial Intelligence: With any alternative communication device there's a long time for a person with a disability to either initiate a conversation or to answer questions. In order to solve that we created two features in Livox: Livox Recommendations and Livox Natural Conversation. Livox Recommendations uses Machine Learning to recommend items that users may be likely to use to initiate conversations based on time and location. The more the user uses Livox, the smarter it gets. Usually an alternative communication device has dozens of unused items on an screen. Instead of this approach, Livox show fewer items according to time and location. When it's lunch time, for example, Livox will show options for lunch and so on and so forth. Livox Natural Conversation uses Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing to help non-verbal people with disabilities to answer questions. Just like "Ok Google" or "Hey Siri", you can create a keyword (we recommend the keyword to be the name of the user with disability). So, every time Livox listens the keyword, it starts listening. So, imagine this scenario: a teacher just read a book to a special child. So the teacher may say: Clara (user's name, keyword), this book was about a dog, a cat or a rabbit? Livox uses Natural Language Processing to bring this three options: DOG, CAT and RABBIT. In this way, it's much easier for a person with a disability to answer a question. There's no need to memorize any questions. We are always training new models.
Some features of
In order to enable a wide range of people with disabilities to use the software, Livox relies on a number of intelligent algorithms to make it fit a wide variety of diseases and disabilities.
- Blink of an eye: Select Livox items with the blink of an eye, literally! Useful for people with motor disabilities who can use the software without touching on the tablet.
- Livox Recommendations: Through Artificial Intelligence, Livox learns the user routine and displays information according to usage based on time and location context.
- Natural Conversation: Now you can ask questions to the user, Livox listens, interprets and presents on-screen alternatives so the user can respond. (available only in English and Portuguese for now)
- Statistics Livox: Portal for evaluation and monitoring of the evolution of the student or patient. Through this portal it is possible to analyze the improvement of the user in several categories such as behavior, cognition, etc.
- Intelligent Scan: Use Livox with one or more switches. If you do not have a switch, your tablet screen turns into one! Just touch anywhere on the screen!
- Livox Smart touch: The only one with a smart algorithm called IntelliTouch that corrects the imperfect touch of the disabled person. It just works!
- Educational Content: Create personalized content to develop cognitive skills in a playful way, involving logical reasoning, spatial ability, operational memory, sequencing and more ...
- Multiple Users and Profiles: Create separate and personalized content for each patient or student or diagnostic profile. Each disabled person will have their own unique content!
- Smart Virtual Keyboard: The only one with a smart virtual keyboard that automatically speaks word by word or phrase by phrase without having to delete anything!
