Smartkuber: preliminary results

We ran a preliminary (informal) analysis of the first results coming from the – still on the two digits – gaming sessions of Smartkuber, just for the fun of it. Trying to examine the game’s validity as a cognitive screening tool, we found a promising, statistically significant linear correlation – so far – between the game scores and the MoCA cognitive screening test scores. We can also get a better insight on each mini-game’s performance. However, there is still a long road ahead of us, with the final results coming in around December. Things are looking good, fingers crossed…

PS. Seniornett Norway has been an extremely helpful collaborator, providing the study’s awesome participants and the meaningful feedback.
