AI Advances in Using Speech & Language Patterns as Window into Mental Health

AI Advances in Using Speech & Language Patterns as Window into Mental Health | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

We've made progress in building AI algorithms to help inform clinicians about users' mental state based on the structural complexity of their sentences, which can point to patterns of cognitive impairment.
We have also proven that AI and machine learning can be used to help clinicians identify critical language patterns that determine, with 95 percent accuracy, speech samples which traditionally correspond to schizophrenic patients vs. those that correspond to individuals deemed more likely to experience psychosis by health professionals or healthy controls.

We have developed a way to use machine learning to quickly automate the analysis of verbal speech and alert clinicians, with more than 83 percent accuracy, of the possibility of a psychotic episodes within cohorts that have been identified as more likely to experience psychosis, regardless of the diagnostic protocol.

Speech Research: Switch From Up-front Data to Adaptive Learning to Digitise Low-Resource Languages

Speech Research: Switch From Up-front Data to Adaptive Learning to Digitise Low-Resource Languages | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

Rather than funding research into Welsh speech AI, the Welsh government may well do better by backing research into this new kind of adaptive learning technology.
Because all current speech AI systems handle the speech centrally (it’s not done in the device, but in a remote server farm), these systems could gather data from hundreds of users worldwide (or all over Wales) to rapidly learn. So the message to Welsh speakers today may be to not buy that English-language Google Home or Amazon Alexa if you want Google or Amazon to produce a system that works in Welsh. But if you do have one, as its software develops over the next few years, try speaking Welsh to it as much as possible. It may just surprise you and Siaradwch â chi yn Gymraeg.

Farewell to Findx, A Privacy-focused Search Engine Project

Findx was a dream about building a private and independent search engine – a true alternative to Google designed with respect for people’s privacy at its core.
It wasn’t just a search engine – we were committed to protecting people’s online privacy and we built a private search engine, a desktop browser, browser extensions and mobile apps for enhanced private browsing – all with full transparency, mostly based on open source projects.
Maybe we were a little ahead of our time with our strong focus on privacy, and it turned out to be a lot harder than we imagined to make people realize that privacy is important - but we were right! The focus on privacy has now been named as consumers’ most important topic by Gartner.

Xinhua, China’s state-run press agency, has unveiled new “AI anchors” — digital composites created from footage of human hosts that read the news using synthesized voices. Xinhua has used footage of human anchors as a base layer, and then animated parts of the mouth and face to turn the speaker into a virtual puppet. By combining this with a synthesized voice, Xinhua can program the digital anchors to read the news, far quicker than using traditional CGI.
