Computer vision system can help diagnose autism in toddlers
Autism is estimated to affect more than two million people in the US and tens of millions worldwide, but diagnosing it is notoriously difficult, particularly in young children. Recently, however, University of Minnesota researcher Jordan Hashemi and a team of colleagues developed a computer vision system that automatically analyzes toddlers’ movements to detect signs of autism early.

Tiny $25 computer is designed to teach programming to kids



It’s become fairly common to see phones and computer devices designed to completely hide their inner workings from their users. What’s far less common is to see a device developed specifically to enable users to see more of its technology. That, however, is precisely the premise behind Raspberry Pi, an ultra low-cost computer designed for teaching computer programming to children. READ MORE…
