Voice Biomarkers for Public Health

Voice Biomarker.

Voice signal processing for health applications. 

Project description

Voice data contains rich biomarkers for health applications, including Parkinson's, Autism, Dementia, etc. In this project, we would like to use an end-to-end mobile/web-cloud system for voice biomarker identification in daily-life user voice.

The key components include:

  •  Web/UI design
  • Cloud software and database
  • Voice signal process
  • Machine learning models 

Project outcome

A software tool for voice-based health screening.
