Background

The CoLive Voice research project aims to identify vocal biomarkers of severe conditions and frequent health symptoms. It is an international project based on digital technologies and artificial intelligence. This research initiative is handled by the Deep Digital Phenotyping Research Unit from the Luxembourg Institute of Health.

The evolution of voice technology, audio signal analysis and natural language processing/understanding methods have opened the way to numerous applications of voice tracking and analysis in the field of healthcare. Voice is a rich medium, in which a lot of information can be found, providing that we know how to isolate and make use of it. A vocal biomarker can be defined as a signature, a feature or a combination of features from the audio signal of the voice that is associated with a clinical outcome and can be used to monitor patients, diagnose a condition or grade the severity or the stages of a disease or for drug development.

Objectives

Our team is looking for a motivated Student to define and boost the recruitment and communication strategies to ensure the success of the CoLive Voice project. The Student will directly contribute to the implementation of the CoLive Voice project by setting up a global communication strategy to develop external collaborations and visibility of the project and increase the recruitment rate. He/she will be supervised by Aurélie Fischer, Scientific Project Manager of CoLive Voice and will work in close collaboration with Dr. G. Fagherazzi, Principal Investigator of CoLive Voice, Director of the Department of Population Health and Research Leader of the Deep Digital Phenotyping Research Unit and the Marketing-Communication team of LIH led by Arnaud D’Agostini.
