Researches at Hospital Clínic group develop a new tool for diagnosing Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder
Researchers at the GRIE (Infancy and Environment Research Group) at Hospital Clínic-IDIBAPS, collaborators with the Neurodevelopmental Disorder Unit at barnaclínic+, have developed VisualTEAF, an app that, thanks to artificial intelligence, is able to help in the diagnosis of Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). It’s the first diagnostic tool for FASD in which machine learning is used, a branch of artificial intelligence that allows machines to learn without being expressly programmed to do so.
