The ability of artificial intelligence to help screen patients for a common diabetic eye disease gains momentum with a new study published online today in Ophthalmology, the journal of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Lily Peng, M.D., Ph.D., and her colleagues at Google AI research group, show they could improve their disease-detecting software by using a small subset of images adjudicated by ophthalmologists who specialize in retinal diseases.
When a task calls for intuitive, its complexity goes unnoticed. However, when intuitions are not mobilized, the task is considered difficult, and seemingly requires the use of specific educational strategies. Researchers at UNIGE have demonstrated that teachers struggle to understand the difficulties encountered by pupils when attempting to solve apparently intuitive problems that are in fact difficult. The findings suggest that teachers only use their pedagogical skills when a problem seems to mobilize counter-intuitive strategies.

Thirty years ago it was rare for a student with ASD to enter college. But over the past decades, there has been much improvement in the detection and awareness of ASD in children. Now, with the provision of effective treatments, those with average or above average intellectual abilities are enrolling at universities.
