Brent Vaughan, the co-founder of Cognoa, talks on how technology can empower parents to quickly diagnose autism traits in their children.

One in every 68 children across the world is diagnosed with autism. In India, 1 child born every two minutes is later diagnosed to be on the autism spectrum. The current diagnostic techniques are too cumbersome and by the time parents get their child diagnosed with autism, its little too late for any intervention. Brent and his team at cognoa have used day to day technology like smartphones coupled with some machine learning in cloud to help parents diagnose their children early.

Listen to this tech talk from this silicon valley entrepreneur who is set to change autism diagnosis across the world.
