The IASON project investigates the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's dementia by combining neuropsychological tests with advanced EEG time series analysis and the use of an intelligent emotional-empathic digital assistant (IEEDA) to monitor the course of the disease, including continuous speech analysis in patients using AI methods.

It is operated by Tokeya Deep Data Dive GmbH & Co. KG in cooperation with the Chair of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy (KliPs) of the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU), and is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

A short overview of the project can be found on a page of the BMBF: https://www.technik-zum-menschen-bringen.de/projekte/iason

A project homepage will go online shortly.
