University of Buffalo to create new AI systems to help young children with speech and/or language processing challenges

The National Science Foundation has given the University at Buffalo (UB) a grant of $20 million for launching a national centre to create artificial intelligence systems that can recognise and help children with speech and/or language processing difficulties. Children ages 3 to 10 who are more likely to lag behind in their academic and socioemotional development—problems made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic—will receive services due to this endeavour.
