How a mathematical model of autism could help diagnose autism and help save lives
An algorithm that can predict which autistic children are likely to be diagnosed with autism, and predict their potential risk of autism, could soon be available for the public, researchers say.
The new algorithm, developed by researchers at the University of Southern California and Carnegie Mellon University, uses the mathematical model known as a generalized additive model to predict the likelihood that a child with autism will be diagnosed.
Autism is a neurological disorder that causes difficulties with social interactions, communication, and social behavior.
The disorder is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people in the U.S. according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The algorithm, which uses mathematical models to predict which children are most likely to develop autism, is being described as “the most precise, powerful and powerful autism prediction model.”
The algorithm’s mathematical model, called the GMLM, is based on the work of a mathematical genius, mathematician Dr. Michael Beilin, who published his theories about autism in 1998 and has since become a major figure in the field of mathematical modeling.
The GMLMs are a way of combining the insights from a large number of studies into the causes of autism and the effects of those causes on the development of the disorder.
In the GmlMs, Beilins team created a mathematical tool to predict autism risk based on several variables, such as age, sex, race, and socioeconomic status.
The researchers developed a mathematical framework to predict an individual’s autism risk using these variables, which were then validated by a large sample of children in a large clinical trial.
Using this approach, the team was able to predict that an autistic child who is likely to have autism could be diagnosed based on these variables alone.
The researchers say their algorithm is a “new tool” that can help the public and clinicians determine autism risk, and help those who have autism to develop and manage their condition.
The new algorithm has the potential to save thousands of lives, Beimins team says in a statement.
Dr. Beilinos team is working on a separate mathematical tool called a Bayesian Bayesian Optimization (BMA) model to be used for clinical diagnoses of autism.
The BMA model can be used to assess the likelihood of a child being diagnosed with ASD based on a combination of mathematical model parameters, such the likelihood an autistic person will have a diagnosis, and the likelihood they will have autism spectrum disorder (ASD).BMA models are “a tool that is being developed for use in the autism field and the BMA is the most precise and powerful of the mathematical models used to develop ASD diagnosis,” Beilinas team says.BMAs are an approach to predicting the likelihood for a given model to converge on a prediction, which in turn is the likelihood to find the model converging on a model.
BMA models can also be used as a tool for predicting how much the model’s parameters are likely the best parameters to use for predicting the outcome of the model, the statement says.
The scientists’ work has not yet been published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
The project was funded by a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health.
The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
