seizure risk

  • Challenge 1 is to create a piece of software that can be installed in a display (or box connected to a display) that will monitor the signal coming in to the display, detect visual events that are known to trigger a seizure, and alter the signal to remove that stimulus.
  • Challenge 2 is to create a pair of glasses that can monitor the environment for seizure inducing visual events, detect them, and then modify what the user sees in order to reduce or eliminate the seizure inducing event.

The Trace Center created a Photosensitive Epilepsy Analysis Tool (PEAT) that can analyze web and software to detect visual events that are known to cause seizures. This prize is for the creation of a “clean room” open source version of the tool.
