Research on individualized neural and medical inference

Research efforts are focused on developing machine learning algorithms to substantially improve the diagnosis and treatment of perceptual and cognitive disorders. This work is advancing the ability of precision medicine to target individual patients for custom interventions rather than treating them the same as the rest of the cohort sharing their diagnosis. Such approaches have great potential for improving outcomes under conditions of substantial patient variability. These ideas are being extended into “precision education,” which promotes algorithmic optimization of learning opportunities for individual students, as well as more general clinical indications.
