Artificial Intelligence is being increasingly used in medical applications for improving health and general living of us humans. In this article, we will be discussing how artificial intelligence is being used in screening learning disorders and in the recovery of essential body functions.
Dystech, an Australian start-up is developing an app for screening and early detection of learning disorders, mainly dyslexia and dysgraphia.
Built over Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure, the app leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques. It takes the users through a 10-minute screening test which asks users to read aloud words that appear on a screen while being recorded using a smart device. As a result of this test, users are informed about their likelihood of having dyslexia. Similarly, for someone with dysgraphia, the assessment is done based on a photo of handwritten text instead of using audio recordings.
The objectives of the third Nijmegen AI-lab are not small, they are working towards enabling hearing in deaf people, seeing in blind people, and movement in paralysed people. All these are to be achieved with the help of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and implants. Even though the brain would not be able to pick mental control of the body again but could do the same for its senses.
Restoring essential body functions is the main objective of the Donders ICAI-lab at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, which also offers new perspectives on major advances in neurotechnology.
