Artificial Intelligence aids in Understanding Child’s Brain Function

It is said that the laughter of a child is the light of the home. In today’s world of technology, people are so engrossed in moving forward with the world that they do not hesitate to put their children under pressure as well. Excelling in academics may not be possible for every child sometimes it may be due to the child’s ability to absorb knowledge and remember them for future preference. 

Researchers from the Medical Research Council (MRC) state that the children who struggle at school and are left behind in their academics may be assisted with the help of artificial intelligence technologies. According to them, they want to apply machine learning to a broad variety of struggling learners. Previously the research was being done on children who were already diagnosed with conditions such as dyslexia, or autism spectrum disorder, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. This study may help to capture the scope of difficulties that lies within and also overlap between the diagnostics categories.

Every Child is Different, So is Their Brain. Slow Learning- Not So Bad After All

Artificial intelligence was applied to the computer algorithm with many cognitive testing data that were collected from different children including spatial reasoning, vocabulary, listening skills, memory and problem solving. On the basis of data, the algorithms indicated four clusters of difficulties in which children best fitted. 

The head of the Neurosciences, Dr. Joanna Latimer said that this new discovery in the minds of children have further opened doors of investigation of machine learning and how new technologies such as machine learning can be applied to further understand the complications of the brain function. As for strict parents who think a child is worthless if he doesn’t learn quickly, need to understand that as long as children are encouraged to never stop learning, it should not matter how slowly they learn.
