Title: 'Who cares about speech and what can it tell us?'

Abstract: We can tell when our friends and family are tired, depressed or happy just by listening to their speech. It is much harder to feel confident about these assumptions when listening to people for the first time, as we donít have a baseline on which to compare performance. In this context, repeated objective measurement of speech can help clinicians and scientists make decisions about disease progression or treatment response in conditions effecting the central nervous system. The call for meaningful and objective digital markers in clinical trials is coming from patient groups, industry and regulators. The role speech can play in enhancing decision making within the pharmaceutical industry is a new area of research and its implications will be discussed from clinical and industry perspectives
