Talk to Me: Deep Learning Identifies Depression in Speech Patterns

“Talk therapy” is often used by psychotherapists to help patients overcome depression or anxiety through conversation. A research team at Massachusetts Institute of Technology is using deep learning to uncover what might be called “talk diagnosis” — detecting signs of depression by analyzing a patient’s speech. The research could lead to effective, and inexpensive, diagnosis Read article >

How UCSF Researchers Are Using AI on Some of Healthcare’s Toughest Problems

Hospitals produce huge volumes of medical data that, when handled with concern for privacy and security, could be used to re-examine everything from hospital administration to patient care. But this means finding careful ways to assemble this data, so it’s no longer locked in organizational silos. A research team at the University of California, San Read article >

Cell by Cell: Deep Learning Powers Drug Discovery Effort for Hundreds of Rare Diseases

Cancer, diabetes, heart disease. These diseases attract a ton of research effort and funding, and for good reason: They afflict tens of millions of people each year. But there are about 7,000 known rare diseases that rarely get attention. Also called “orphan” diseases, these conditions collectively affect about 400 million worldwide and were historically neglected Read article >

How AI Is Helping Address the Rohingya Refugee Healthcare Crisis

More than 700,000 Rohingya refugees have fled Myanmar in the past year, finding temporary shelter across the border in Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar district. Their overcrowded, unhygienic living conditions make them especially vulnerable to infections and other diseases — a need the United Nations has called “immense,” with healthcare services “grossly under-funded.” Help in addressing these Read article >
