The Corona pandemic shows us the need for intelligent technical solutions in medicine. Artificial intelligence will revolutionize the health sector in the next years. We are developing voice biomarkers at audEERING and that is the reason why our CEO Dagmar Schuller recently held a talk at this year´s Big Data AI Summit. Her topic was “Audio AI in medicine – is the voice the new blood? “. The Big Data AI Summit is Europe’s leading conference on the practical application of artificial intelligence and big data in business.
The Voice as Source for Information on Health
To speak just a single word, a very complex production system in our body is needed. A lot of information is actually stored in how we produce our speech. A vast series of muscle groups are actually associated with speech production like the vocal folds, vocal cords, tongue, chest, and breast muscles. If some of them are not functioning correctly or if there are dysfunctions in these muscle groups, they can be detected with Audio AI.
Disfunctionalities in the Voice
The human voice can be really helpful when it comes to the diagnosis and prediction of certain diseases that show voice dysfunctionalities. Audio AI offers the chance to enormously improve especially the diagnosis and therapy of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, or depression. Voice biomarkers can be trained to detect these diseases in an early stage.
