Abstract

SALSA automates cognitive test administration and scoring. These tests are used to characterize cognitive impairment resulting from neurodegenerative disease, traumatic brain injury, and drug toxicity; however, they are currently performed manually, limiting their utility for large clinical populations and longitudinal assessments. We present a fully automated, comprehensive system for collecting spoken test responses with mobile and telephony platforms, using an open-source automatic speech recognition engine (KALDI) to calculate a range of speech characteristics that may be useful in assessment of cognitive function.
