AI tool can detect PTSD by analysing voices: Study

The research, published in the journal Depression and Anxiety, found that an artificial intelligence tool can distinguish – with 89 per cent accuracy – between the voices of those with or without PTSD.

Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) tool that can help diagnose post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by analysing patient’s voices, a study has found.

The research, published in the journal Depression and Anxiety, found that an artificial intelligence tool can distinguish – with 89 per cent accuracy – between the voices of those with or without PTSD.

“Our findings suggest that speech-based characteristics can be used to diagnose this disease, and with further refinement and validation, may be employed in the clinic in the near future,” said Charles R Marmar, from New York University.

More than 70 per cent of adults worldwide experience a traumatic event at some point in their lives, with up to 12 per cent of people in some struggling countries suffering from PTSD.

Those with the condition experience strong, persistent distress when reminded of a triggering event.

Researchers said that a PTSD diagnosis is most often determined by clinical interview or a self-report assessment, both inherently prone to biases.
