CogniABle has developed a new, inexpensive way to help diagnose children with autism at an early age.
Spotted: India-based CogniABle is a screening and education platform that uses AI to correctly diagnose young children on the autism spectrum. The data-driven program is more effective and less expensive at diagnosing young children than traditional methods, according to CogniABle.
Manu and Swati Kohli developed CogniABle when struggling to find services for their child after he was diagnosed with autism. The Kohlis developed the platform to provide a remote, data-driven and affordable service that could be used by parents.
The online platform also allows people to access screening and expert assistance in areas without autism-specific services. The AI-driven program diagnoses children based on his or her fine motor, gross motor and complex actions. The machine learning uses a large pool of data to fine-tune its analysis. It then creates a customised plan for each child.
The team has already filed two patents for its machine learning models. CongiABle has also signed contracts with hospital chains in India and licensed evidence-based curriculum from US experts.
