“Today’s methods are quite cumbersome,” explains Frederik Wetterhall, the CEO and co-founder of Lexplore, a company that has devised a dyslexia screening tool that pairs eye tracking cameras with AI and algorithms. “With paper- and pen-based tests, it’s quite hard to read the results and takes a lot of time. [Educators] ask, ‘Who are the kids we think have difficulties?’ and they miss a lot of kids.”

Using a repository of eye-tracking data and an analytical engine built with cloud-based Microsoft Azure Machine Learning, [Lexplore] aims to help schools identify students at risk for dyslexia significantly earlier than current screening tests. With early diagnosis, students can receive appropriate treatments to boost learning skills and improve academic performance.
