Children struggling to express their emotions could now get some help from artificial intelligence.
Something experts are also using to detect signs of depression in young ones.
This according to a new study published in the journal of biomedical and health informatics.
Experts say a majority of kids under the age of eight are undiagnosed with anxiety and depression.
But now – a new algorithm is helping identify kids quickly.
Over 70 children were asked to come up with a story that would be judged.
The algorithm worked with 80 percent accuracy to pinpoint which prediagnosed children were suffering from an internalized disorder.
The technology picked up on low-pitched speaking, monotone voices, and repeated words something experts say are social symptoms of anxiety and depression.
