BERLIN — German software giant SAP AG said Tuesday that it plans to recruit people with autism to take make full use of their talents to process information.


Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties in communicating, emotional detachment, and rigid or repetitive behavior. But some people with mild autism can perform complex mathematical tasks much better than the average population.


‘‘SAP sees a potential competitive advantage to leveraging the unique talents of people with autism, while also helping them to secure meaningful employment,’’ the Walldorf, Germany-based software maker said.


An estimated 1 percent of the world population has a form of autism and the company wants to reflect that in its 65,000-strong workforce, spokesman Hilmar Schepp said.


The jobs for which SAP will be recruiting people with autism include software testing, programming, and quality assurance.


The announcement follows a pilot project SAP undertook in India which resulted in productivity improvements, the company said. It will be expanded to the United States, Canada, and Germany this year.


The company is partnering with Danish company Specialisterne, which helps people with autism work in technology jobs.
