A machine that detects children at risk of autism
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 soonerhttps://www.smh.com.au/world/asia/scientist-develops-retinal-scanner-to-identify-childhood-autism-20210315-p57au6.html

Eat according to our genes
We may soon have a scientifically-proven way of optimising our diet and health based on our genes and gut microbes. In a project led by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a five-year-long study will examine how 10,000 Americans process food, tackling the “what, when, why, and how to eat” to optimise health and reduce chronic health plagues such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.The resulting tools, methods, and paradigm shift will have the potential to truly transform the field of nutrition sciencehttps://singularityhub.com/2021/02/16/massive-national-health-study-looks-to-tailor-your-diet-to-your-genetic-makeup
