Korean operator examines detection of senile dementia using AI

Operators are eyeing the addition of associated health services to their range of offerings. New example in South Korea, where operator SK Telecom has just developed an artificial intelligence (AI) tool with the Seoul National University College of Medicine to help identify dementia earlier.

This AI tool analyzes patients’ voices by having a 10-minute conversation with them to determine if they may have dementia, as reported by the Korean operator’s management.

She notes that AI is able to do this by determining how the voice emitted by the vocal cord changes as it passes through the vocal tract, knowing that the way this happens is different for healthy people. and patients with dementia. It is on this difference that the AI ​​tool of SK Telecom is based to establish its diagnosis.

Provide early diagnosis

This accessibility will facilitate an early diagnosis, underlines the staff of SK Telecom, which explains that this will prove to be crucial in slowing the progression of dementia. For the operator, this should also reduce costs for hospitals and the elderly.

SK Telecom and the university will test the program this month in major hospitals and mental health centers to improve diagnostic accuracy. The program will be offered as an application for remote diagnostics.

The two partners will further work on adding speech analysis, facial recognition, heart rate monitoring and blood pressure measurement to further improve the accuracy of the diagnostic program. In May, SK Telecom set up an autonomous robot capable of checking people’s temperatures and disinfecting areas to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Last year, SK Telecom had already signed a memorandum of understanding with Yonsei University to apply the 5G standard to provide smart hospital solutions.
