Multimodal Dialog Technologies for Neurological and Mental Health

Vikram Ramanarayanan

While deep learning based approaches have made huge strides in improving the performance of speech technologies, several challenges prevent them from being directly useful in the medical domain. In this keynote, Dr. Vikram Ramanarayanan talks about "Multimodal Conversational AI for Remote Patient Health Assessment and Monitoring". His presentation delineates the drawbacks of incumbent clinical assessment practices and highlights the urgent need for remote patient monitoring and assessment in healthcare, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The talk covers task-oriented multimodal systems deployed in real-world scenarios, issues in bridging the gap between academic innovation an in-clinic use, and open challenges, and case studies from different disorders, and a discussion on the aforementioned challenges unique to deploying speech technologies in the medical domain.
