Community Perspective: Trayt CTO Hitesh Kalra on the future of AI in the neurodevelopmental space

Recently, there has been a lot discussion around artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in the diagnosis and treatment of autism and other similar disorders.

There is clearly vast potential, but the critical point is that these technologies must both learn from and serve existing medical trends and protocols. The fundamental nature of child development and social communication is not well understood by human experts, so technology must aid, not oversimplify, its approach to symptoms, conditions and treatment associated with autism, Fragile X or other similar disorders.

For many years, the tech community has made important contributions to the medical sphere. For example, the development of protheses has helped people with disabilities overcome sensory deficits, loss of function and hearing/speaking impairments. And now, technologists are turning their efforts to remediating social communication barriers that hamper people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in their adaptation to the community, school, work and cultural/recreational opportunities.
