A machine that detects children at risk of autism

post-image

A Hong Kong scientist has developed a method to use machine learning and artificial intelligence to scan retinas of children as young as six to detect early autism or the risk of autism and hopes to develop a commercial product this year.

His method uses a high-resolution camera with new computer software that analyses a combination of factors including fibre layers and blood vessels in the eye.

The technology can be used to identify children at risk of autism and get them into treatment programmes sooner
