Diagnosing PTSD through speech
Today’s Video of the Day from the NYU School of Medicine describes how researchers are using artificial intelligence to diagnose PTSD by analyzing voices.
The experts demonstrated that their AI voice tool can identify PTSD in speech-based characteristics with 89 percent accuracy.
“Speech is an attractive candidate for use in an automated diagnostic system, perhaps as part of a future PTSD smartphone app, because it can be measured cheaply, remotely, and non-intrusively,” said study lead author Dr. Adam Brown.
The research is published in the journal Depression and Anxiety.
