A British mathematician is applying "big data" algorithms to detect Parkinson's disease from voice recordings and now claims accuracy up to 99 percent.
"We also know how to predict the severity of symptoms to within a few percentage points of clinical judgment," Max Little, a mathematician on the faculty of Aston University in Birmingham, England, and a visiting researcher at both the...

It's one thing to detect the telltale stiffness, tremors, spasms and loss of muscle control of Parkinson's disease with wireless sensors, as Great Lakes Neurotechnologies is doing with its Kinesia HomeView system. It's another to add automatic medication administration to this type of technology.
A multi-country project funded by the European Union aims to do just that. Researchers in Spain,...
