Do you think there will ever be a treatment for math disorders such as Dyscalculia, and how do you think software may be able to assist this effort?
When I was a kid I used to claim I was “math challenged” (well, I used different words because I spoke British English then). That was why I started building computer tools to help me … and eventually built Mathematica, Wolfram|Alpha, etc.!
Even before I’d built those tools, I was using computers to do math … and me+computer did really well at math relative to other people, even though me on my own would have done fairly horribly…..
