Alzheimers-Detecting Speech Patterns : chatgpt 1

ChatGPT recently passed the US Medical Licensing Exam, the USMLE, following which a team of researchers are using the technology in a practical sense to diagnose underlying diseases. The program is fed a variety of information and is programmed to answer questions similar to how humans form grammar. Researchers at Drexel University are now testing a method to detect Alzheimer’s disease by analyzing speech patterns.

This includes pauses, voice quality, articulations, etc., as it is a natural language processor. In a second project, the team asked the system to predict a patient’s sitting score via her MMSE, and used this to assess potential dementia severity.
