A Robot Designed To Help Kids With Autism Learn Social Cues

#artificialintelligence

Using machine learning, Hoffman and the team at Google are working on designing ways for Blossom to act during different videos to help autistic kids learn key social cues. As robots become increasingly common in our offices, public spaces, and homes, designers have added everything from friendly faces to fur to make the devices more approachable. "In the end, we love warm, organic materials, things made of wood and natural materials like wool or fabric," Hoffman says. "Why aren't social robots also made from these materials?"



Thanks to AI, Computers Can Now See Your Health Problems

The child had ear infection after ear infection and trouble breathing at night. What had taken Patient Number Two's doctors 16 years to find took Face2Gene just a few minutes. The RightEye GeoPref Autism Test can identify the early stages of autism in infants as young as 12 months--the crucial stages where early intervention can make a big difference. But machine learning hears what doctor's can't: Signs of cognitive impairment in speech.


Robots Help Teach Social Skills to Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder - News Center - The University of Texas at Dallas

Now, a UT Dallas researcher is giving the fantasy of robotic friends a practical edge with a robot that teaches social skills to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). "It's not to replace therapy with humans, but you can deliver a social skills lesson in a less threatening way, and the robot can deliver the same lesson multiple times," Rollins said. During a lesson, the robot explains a social situation to the child with ASD.

Two-year-olds should learn to code, says computing pioneer

The Guardian

Dame Stephanie Shirley, whose company was one of the first to sell software in the 1960s, said that engaging very young children – in particular girls – could ignite a passion for puzzles and problem-solving long before the "male geek" stereotype took hold. "I don't think you can start too early," she said, adding that evidence suggested that the best time to introduce children to simple coding activities was between the ages of two and seven years. "Companies run by women still have extraordinary difficulty in getting venture capital," she said. Such technology is already being tested at Priors Court in Berkshire, a residential school for autistic children that Shirley founded.

a-breakthrough-ai-can-now-predict-which-babies-will-develop-autism

#artificialintelligence

A study published in Science Transitional Medicine has found that doctors can predict which babies will develop autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by the age of two with an astonishing 96 percent success rate. The study took brain scans of 59 "sibs" (the younger siblings of children with ASD), who's chances of getting the disease are 20 times higher than average. The method has been applauded for its non-intrusive nature, ability to identify autism from only one scan, and potential to increase "the feasibility of developing early preventative interventions for ASD." AI and machine learning have the potential to revolutionize healthcare by identifying diseases earlier and with more accuracy, allowing doctors to perform cheaper and less intrusive preventative treatments.
