WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AppTek, a leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Machine Translation (MT), today announced it will present a session at the SpeechTEK conference on how speech technology can be leveraged to better understand brain injuries.
|AppTek and Mindsquare’s Presentation on Speech Technology and Brain Injuries|
|Who:||Darius Ferdows, CEO and Co-Founder of Mindsquare|
|Where:||Renaissance Hotel in Washington D.C.|
|When:||Monday, April 29 from 2:15p.m. – 3:00p.m. ET|
During his talk, Darius will discuss how brain injuries have moved to the forefront of health issues and concerns, largely highlighted by its continuing presence in professional sports. This increased attention to concussions has led Mindsquare to partner with AppTek to answer the need for an immediate and more accurate assessment method to identify brain injuries. Through the use of AppTek’s Automatic Speech Recognition and Natural Language Understanding technology, Mindsquare and AppTek were able to develop a mobile device that can conduct a cognitive test where speech patterns are analyzed in real time.
“I have been familiar with the great work Mindsquare and AppTek have been doing for some time. They are helping former professional athletes and others to understand and deal with the concussion-related issues they received while playing in professional sports. In addition, they can help prepare these individuals for potential future issues,” said Brig Owens former Washington Redskin. “With Mindsquare, former professional players and their families can take the right steps to help prevent more cognitive decline. The AppTek Technology is truly remarkable and will help a number of former professional football players and others deal with their cognitive issues and help their quality of life.”
Through this device, AppTek’s speech recognition technology captures fluctuations in tone, utterances, volume of speech, and other issues that have never been analyzed for concussion research. The data collected is then assessed in real time and is to be compared to a previous baseline study. Once this data is compared, medical providers are given the information to determine the presence of a brain injury.
