Abstract: Cognitive decline is a pressing and growing global health challenge. One in which it is increasingly clear that appropriately designed digital health technologies can provide solutions that offer easy-to-use, home-based, and accurate assessments to help healthcare professionals diagnose conditions like dementia. This talk will outline the major challenges in detecting and tracking cognitive health including challenges of co-morbidities and bias and outline recent state-of-the-art research from current projects at the University of Sheffield (UK)’s Speech and Hearing (SPandH) & Healthcare lab.
