CogCubed has created an innovative game, built on a new interactive tangible-graphical gaming platform called Sifteo Cubes, designed to help in diagnosing cognitive disorders like Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and common comorbidities like Depression, Anxiety, and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This new game, called Groundskeeper, provides a new approach to diagnostics.

Through this novel video game, data is tracked and stored at sub-second intervals. Traditional response measurements are captured in addition to new information, such as inter-response metrics. Through a clinical trial at the University of Minnesota, the efficacy of the game was evaluated. Novel data mining techniques were then applied to build several predictive models. We will explain this game, the Big Data captured, the predictive models, and the results of the study. Further, we will explain how this tool, which functions as a game, can be used to improve the diagnosis of cognitive disorders and the broader potential for patients.
