Now smartphones could be used for detecting a user's fatigue, dyslexia and more

Potential new applications for societal good, such as interaction for accessibility, and smartphone-based screening

So many useful ideas come to mind when reading the latest research on Google AI Blog:

"Beyond basic research, a better understanding of eye movement could be useful in a wide variety of applications, ranging across usability and user experience research, gaming, driving, and gaze-based interaction for accessibility to healthcare. However, progress has been limited because most prior research has focused on specialized hardware-based eye trackers that are expensive and do not easily scale."

"We present accurate, smartphone-based, ML-powered eye tracking that has the potential to unlock new research into applications across the fields of vision, accessibility, healthcare, and wellness, while additionally providing orders-of-magnitude scaling across diverse populations in the world, all using the front-facing camera on a smartphone."
