Language & Communication

Improving Language Equity and Inclusion through AI 

This project, led by Dr Matt Davis at MRC CBU, aims to develop new AI methods to understand and address communication and language challenges to improve equity and inclusion. It will develop new ways to support people with language and communication difficulties. For example, with AI we can assess and diagnose common language and communication conditions at scale, and develop technologies such as intelligent hearing aids, real-time machine translation, or other language aids to support affected individuals at home, work or school

Multilingualism and autism

We have a number of studies investigating issues around how speaking, hearing or writing in multiple languages might affect autistic children and their families.

Outputs: Autistic children's perspectives on bilingualism ; Parental perspectives ; Multilingualism and wellbeing ; Multilingualism and neurodevelopmental disorders
