«Speech data collected from older adults could help determine the risk of driving accidents, according to a new study out of Japan. 

Published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, the study found that drivers age 60 and up who experienced accidents or near accidents had changes in their speech features indicating cognitive impairments. Researchers also found that the algorithms used to predict accident risk using speech data could make those predictions with up to 88.3% accuracy.»
