University College Dublin researchers seek trial participants for their non-verbal communication app


Dr Aviva Cohen and her team at University College Dublin, Ireland, have developed an innovative new app called Empathic, aiming to help people who are no longer able to communicate verbally to independently communicate their emotions. It uses artificial intelligence (AI) to interpret short recordings of non-verbal vocalisations. Dr Cohen and her team are now looking for people who fall into this category, as well as their formal and informal care providers, to trial the app. For further information visit or email
