12 April Detecting Alzheimer’s With a Voice Sample

Friday, April 8th, 2022

Joint Meeting: Denver Section Affinity Group, LM, Pikes Peak Section Affinity Group, Denver Section Chapter, EMB18, and Central Texas Section Aff Group, LM (Austin)

Speaker: Henry O’Connell of Canary Speech

Abstract: Many of you probably read the article in the January issue of our IEEE Spectrum magazine that posed the intriguing question: “what if a quick voice sample, easily taken at a person’s home, could help identify a patient with Alzheimer’s?” The company featured in that article is Canary Speech. For this presentation, Henry O’Connell, the CEO and founder of Canary Speech, will speak to us about his company and the AI technology they use. Although the Spectrum article focused on Alzheimer’s Disease, their software has potential to detect other medical conditions and Henry will touch on those as well.
