What Makes Children Struggle with Learning? This AI Program Helps them Understand

An Artificial-Intelligence (AI) program is helping track learning disabilities in children.

A new machine learning program with AI will soon help students read and write who are not as gifted as the rest. The ones with disabilities such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism or dyslexia will soon be able to match the rest of the normal kids.

Researchers, from the University of Cambridge, fed a computer algorithm with cognitive testing data, including measures of listening skills, spatial reasoning, problem-solving, vocabulary, and memory.

The New Steps are taken to provide the complete Education for all

Based on the data fed, the algorithm by the AI suggested that the children best fit into four clusters of difficulties. Difficulties were with working memory skills and difficulties with processing sounds in words.

The others were children with broad cognitive difficulties in many areas and children with typical cognitive test results for their age.

The wish to provide an equal opportunity for Every Child

Difficulties with short-term memory span which is working memory and interpretation of information have been linked with struggling in math and with tasks such as following lists.

Problems which relate to phonological skills, which is processing the sounds in words, has been linked to struggling with reading.

“Our study is the first of its kind to apply machine learning to a broad spectrum of hundreds of struggling learners,” Astle added.

The study, published in the journal ‘Developmental Science,’ recruited 550 children who were struggling at school.

Much of the previous research on learning difficulties has focused on children who had already been given a particular diagnosis, such as ADHD, autism or dyslexia.

Comparing the knowledge among all of the Children

By including children with all difficulties regardless of diagnosis, this study helped better capture the range of difficulties within, and overlap between, the diagnostic categories.

“These are interesting, early-stage findings which begin to investigate how we can apply new technologies, such as machine learning, to better understand brain function,” the researchers noted
