App Helps Diagnose Autism in Kids

Duke University

SenseToKnow is a tablet app that detects a wider range of behaviors such as facial expression, gaze patterns, head movements, and blink rate, the Duke University researchers say. It also incorporates an on-screen bubble-popping game to assess motor movement and skills, as delays in motor skills are one of the earliest signs of autism. The app uses AI to process results which are tied to the behavioral indicators led to its conclusions with an explanation for the diagnosis. Because it works with common tablet features, screening can be done in clinics, schools, and homes.
