TAPAS - Training Network on Automatic Processing of PAthological Speech, Modelling the progression of neurological diseases

Develop speech technology that can allow unobtrusive monitoring of many kinds of neurological diseases. The state of a patient can degrade slowly between medical check-ups. We want to track the state of a patient unobtrusively without the feeling of constant supervision. At the same time the privacy of the patient has to be respected. We will concentrate on PD and thus on acoustic cues of changes. The algorithms should run on a smartphone, track acoustic changes during regular phone conversations over time and thus have to be low-resource. No speech recognition will be used and only some analysis parameters of the conversation are stored on the phone and transferred to the server.
