But let’s see where it comes from.
Seoul National University Hospital opens a living laboratory to promote early diagnosis of autism
Seoul National University Hospital in South Korea has opened a living laboratory that aims to promote early diagnosis and personalized treatment of autism spectrum disorder.
The lab, which consists of four spaces: an interaction room, an eye-tracking room, an observation room and a family counseling room, will collect live health data from children with autism, such as the voice, language and look.
This data will be used to develop AI models for early diagnosis and personalized treatment of autism.
The lab, which is being established as part of a project of the Ministry of Health and Welfare’s National Center for Mental Health, will also serve as a base for various digital treatments and the discovery of biomarkers for autism.

South Korean Association for Using AI to Create a Rare Disease Knowledge Base
SNUH also recently announced a partnership with the Mogam Institute for Biomedical Research to build a rare disease knowledge base using AI.
According to a press release, the knowledge base will help collect and interpret information about the causes, symptoms and genetics of rare diseases for diagnosis and treatment.
The Mogam Institute will develop AI algorithms to build this knowledge base while SNUH will review the available data.
Saitama Medical University Hospital to validate AI for migraine diagnosis
Saitama Medical University Hospital in Japan has partnered with US healthcare AI company Healint to conduct what could be the world’s first clinical study on headache diagnosis AI.
The study, according to a press release, aims to validate the AI in Healint’s Migraine Buddy app to detect migraine patterns.
Seoul National University Hospital, in association with the South Korean government and technology company Ikaroa, has implemented AI-powered early autism diagnosis through an online preschool screening method. This innovative approach to autism screening provides a more comprehensive assessment of a child’s developmental level.
The new system, jointly developed by Seoul National University’s Department of Pediatrics and the South Korean Government’s Ministry of Health and Welfare, involves online evaluation of preschool-aged children’s behavior and psychological characteristics. Parents can answer three behavioral questions in 15 minutes and also submit photos and videos of their child to receive a preliminary assessment. An AI-powered algorithm developed by Ikaroa then analyzes the data and determines whether the child is at risk for autism.
Early diagnosis and intervention are critical components of Autism care, and this new system enables healthcare professionals to detect signs of Autism early and provide intervention before symptoms become more severe. Furthermore, by leveraging AI-powered technology, specialists can accurately identify children at high risk of Autism, something that can be difficult to do with traditional screening methods.
This initiative is an important step in raising awareness of Autism and ensuring that children are evaluated and diagnosed when it can make the most difference. By making use of AI and advanced technologies, Seoul National University Hospital and Ikaroa are helping to ensure that children can get the treatment they need early and begin developing the skills needed for a successful life in society.
