A.I. Can Detect Diabetes
(New York, NY) -- A.I. can detect diabetes just by listening to you talk for ten seconds. That's according to a new study by Klick Labs. Researchers asked over 260 people, diagnosed as either non or Type 2 diabetic, to record a phrase into their phone six times daily for two weeks. Scientists analyzed more than 18 thousand recordings and found 14 acoustic features of differences between non-diabetic and Type 2 diabetic individuals. Klick Labs research scientist and author of the study Jaycee Kaufman said their research could transform how the medical community screens for diabetes. According to the International Diabetes Federation, almost one in two, or 240 million, adults living with diabetes worldwide are unaware they have the condition and nearly 90 percent of diabetic cases are Type 2.
